About this Campaign

Hi Everyone! Thanks for checking our our link!  My name is Erin Young.  I've been teaching primary kiddos in District 200  for 20 years.  Each year I love figuring out  what is motivating and will boost engagement for my students. This year my kindergartners have been loving the games!   Have you ever thought about the educational as well as social - emotional  benefits to playing games?  Games motivate players to take risks and actions, persevere through failures, as well as set and achieve increasingly difficult goals.   In kindergarten, games allow students to put into practice life skills such as: taking turns, self control, and being patient.  Games can soothe anxiety and increase a student's attention span.  For a 5 year old, a game like Connect 4 can help them connect with others in an authentic and meaningful way.  This game can  give students the opportunity to engage with others they may not seek out on their own and establish new friendships.   I am asking for 12 Connect 4 games.  These Connect 4 game boards will be used in a time of whole class game play and "brain break."   Connect 4 is an easy game to learn, and requires strategy as well as "think ahead"  problem solving.  My 24  kindys will LOVE to learn and play this game! 

This specific traditional, yet more expensive  Connect 4  game I've requested, is easy to clean up and use.   The higher price is because of the design - the game pieces are stored inside the game itself.  There are no "legs" to break off, making it ideal for longevity in the classroom.

Thank you very much for considering!  We are all so thankful!
