TEACHING EXPERIENCE

ThinkFun is the world’s leading manufacturer of brainteasers, logic puzzles and educational games. For over 30 years, we’ve been turning the cleverest ideas of the craziest mathematician and inventors into games and toys that children love to play. Come to find out, teachers love our games, too. After working with local schools and developing county-wide programs for them, we’re making the leap and are releasing our educational programs on TeachersPayTeachers.com. Because we believe every student should be able to learn through play.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We create learning games and brainteasers that are entirely student driven. Kids love to play them – and the more they play, the more they learn. Our games work by teaching students strategies, which help them get better and win…but in the process, they’re actually mastering specific, important learning principles. With ThinkFun Classroom Experiences, available through Teachers Pay Teachers and ThinkFun learning games, we’re able to provide teachers with screen based resource materials – allowing teachers, like you, to lead a group discussion without having to become an expert on the topic yourself. Your students will engage and focus as they play through our challenges. They will then be excited to have in-depth conversations around thinking strategies and learning. And the best part, they will have fun throughout the entire experience!
