Dear Amazing Teacher,
Oh my goodness! Recess inside again? Spice up that cold and wet day with a new game or two - six to be exact! Lead the games yourself or for older students, these games can be student-led once they know how to play. These games are specially designed to be inclusive of language learners so that they can participate at their own language level(s).
Each of the 6 games has the following features on a nifty card:
Materials: a quick list of what you’ll need for game play.
Directions: concise and clear directions that tell you how to play.
Common Core State Standards: a list of the Common Core State Standard(s) that the game supports. The students will get lots of listening and speaking practice as they actively engage with one another around literacy and numeracy games.
The games are flexible. Use the content that you'd like and modify them to fit your needs. Ask students for ideas to change the games. Have fun and here's to winter weather!
Enjoy! - Trish
