ANYWAY!! Back to our games!
We played games ALL.THE.TIME! I started off buying my games through Lakeshore and other wonderful companies, but once I started creating my own worksheets on TPT, I realized I could also create my own games. THEN IT WAS ON!!!
I created MATH games, ELA games, WORD games, QR CODE games, I HAVE WHO HAS games, and SPOT THAT WORD games.
First things First!
So, first I sit my kiddos in a big circle, and I explain the rules of the game. I pick the leader as my "Opponent". We play the game a few times, and explain the different aspects as we go. Then the game becomes a center game. I also used a lot of my games during small groups to help with certain skills.
