Using Board Games to Supplement Your Lessons
Do you use board games to supplement your lessons? We do. There are so many games on the market now teaching everything from fractions to geography that you can find one to use with almost any subject.
I find these games to be valuable tools because they make learning fun, and they serve to reward my kids for their hard work. My son was surprised and delighted to discover that games were a part of our school week (this is his first year homeschooling).
For example, one of their favorites is Dora's Candyland, which I use to reinforce their Spanish lessons. But we also use Boggle Jr. with our spelling curriculum, Yahtzee with math, and Pictionary with reading, and many others.
Learning Resources has some great games. I like to keep an eye on their sale section where I can find some super deals up to 70% off from time to time. But Amazon also carries many educational games at discounted prices.
Do you use games to supplement your child's education?
Con mucho cariño...
