TEACHERS & STUDENTS NEED OUR SUPPORT

THE GAP

OUR TEACHERS & STUDENTS ARE FACING MORE CHALLENGES IN THE CLASSROOM THAN EVER BEFORE

  • Higher rates of behavioral issues and limited resources mean that our teachers are facing far bigger challenges than in decades past.

  • As our screen time is rising, social skills and the ability to cope with emotions are falling.

  • Anxiety, depression, and stress are on the rise for teachers and for students.

CARDS FOR CONNECTION IS ALREADY HELPING

THE CONNECTION

TEACHERS ARE ALREADY USING CARDS FOR CONNECTION DECKS IN THEIR CLASSROOMS FOR:

  • Hands-on Social Emotional Learning practice

  • Building self-confidence

  • Fostering Empathy and Compassion

  • Cultivating a positive mindset for teachers and for students

  • Creating a framework for healthy self-reflection and creative expression

FAQ’s

WHICH DECKS ARE YOU SENDING TO CLASSROOMS?

We’re sending the Connection Games Decks to Teachers for use in the classroom, for connecting with other teachers, and for creating connection with parents.

WHAT ELSE ARE YOU SENDING TO THE TEACHERS?

We’re also putting together self-care kits that include the Positive Programming deck and tips from our partners on ways to enhance self-care for our teachers.

We’ll also include ways to incorporate self-care into the classroom.

DO YOU HAVE CURRICULUM & LESSON PLANS TO SEND?

We’re working with a curriculum specialist to create custom lesson plans and curriculum for multiple ages and applications.

Meeting state and federal standards is a longer term project, so please sign up for our email list to keep you posted on our progress.

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?

I had a difficult childhood, and tools like these cards would have helped me tremendously!! When I see the impact of screen time, social media, and less outdoor time on our kids, my heat breaks. I know we have the tools, so I’m taking action!

WHEN ARE YOU PLANNING TO SEND THE CARDS FOR CONNECTION DECKS?

We’re set for delivery for the spring semester! We’ll keep you posted on the number of decks we’re sending, how you can nominate schools or teachers, and stories from them being used in the classroom.

DOES IT COUNT IF I GET ANY OF THE OTHER DECKS?

Yes!

HOW WILL YOU CHOOSE WHERE TO SEND THE DECKS?

We will run a campaign to nominate teachers and classrooms directly to our list and will work with partner organizations to distribute the decks.

If you’re interested in nominating a teacher (including yourself), please make sure you’re on our email list! You can also include a separate donation below and suggest a school or teacher.

CAN I DONATE WITHOUT GETTING A DECK FOR MYSELF?

Sure! Click the donate button below, choose your amount, and we’ll bring more decks to classrooms. You can event suggest a specific school or teacher.
