Engagement is Everything
School: Edmonson Elementary
The past few years my main focus as a teacher has been to create engaging and fun experiences for my students by using different games and materials. If students are engaged, and having fun then they are more likely to retain what is being taught and they are also motivated to learn more difficult content! The materials that I will purchase from this grant are things that will help me to engage my students during my lessons as well as motivate them to perform and behave well. They are also things that have been on my school Amazon wish list for awhile and are some higher priced items that I just cannot purchase on my own. Some examples of the things I would purchase would be a giant connect 4 game to use to review content at the end of a unit. I would also purchase a giant Plinko game that students can earn chips and play to win experiences in the classroom.
