Let's face it ... kids love games! If you can take that love and utilize it in your classroom, why wouldn't you? With the digital world we live in & the accessibility of the internet and devices is a large majority of homes and schools, teachers CAN use games to further encourage and support their students.
Games provide the ability to reinforce concepts, allow repetitive practice for students who need it, some allow students to play on teams or individually (some can be done independently!), add an "air" of fun, and so much more ... and MOSTLY at very little to no cost!!!
The games I cover in this are super easy to set up, modify, and re-use from year to year. You customize your own or borrow ones other teachers have created.
My students absolutely have loved it --- I'd be willing to bet yours will too!
