Product Description

Research (and my own experience) is very clear! Children learn best when that experience involves two elements: FUN and SOCIAL INTERACTION. Games easily provide both of these elements. However, finding a game that reinforces exactly the concepts being taught, or bringing in an upcoming holiday or sports event to teach curriculum, is about impossible...until now! This game board resource addresses each curriculum strand generically. When a teachers own questions or task cards are added, any curriculum objective can be reinforced. This is exactly how research is used to guide instruction! Please remember, questions are NOT included. The boards are made to go with any task card questions you already have (or your own questions) as needed and directed by your curriculum

========================================================================

This resource includes 65 full color game boards with themes from the curriculum, holidays and sports. These full color game boards also have a low color, or black and white version that can be printed easily in black and white at school. There are a total of 71 low color/black and white boards. Full color may require being printed at home, at a print shop, or at your local library. Printing the boards on card stock and laminating then will ensure that your materials last many years.

Also included are spinners, dice, game pieces and a page of blank forms for teacher questions. These pieces work best when NOT laminated.

==========================================================================

Please note: I have made the game boards "play" the same, with board directions that repeat throughout the boards. This is done so once the rules are explained, and established for game play, the rest of the year's boards only require to be copied and passed out to students. No further directions are required for understanding. This means boards can be given for homework, center time, morning work or whatever, with no further teacher time needed for directions.

These boards have been designed to last between 10 and 15 minutes, depending on which spinner or dice is used (up to three move spinner or dice will give longer playing time, up to four move spinner or dice will give shorter). Of course playing time will vary greatly depending on your students, and the difficulty of the questions

==========================================================================

Special Note

The first time or two the games are presented, it is important to go over what each direction means (in teacher notes) and model expected behavior during game play. Making sure students understand the rules and consequences for breaking classroom game rules will save you time and many headaches!
