    Teacher Claire, Board games are a wonderful experience for children and their families. Teachers in the middle school level realized how much the children enjoyed the board games when they became part of team time. Children need to be encouraged to sit and enjoy the games during family time. Of course, they need help from parents in understanding the game, making it more fun to enjoy and often times win. Thanks for reminding us of games that have been around for awhile .
    catching up on past blogs, great as usual..mary o.

  2. Thanks so much for stopping by my site and leaving a note. I do share sites with my students in an effort to help them better understand life inside the classroom. I will be sharing your site with them.

    As to games, I would add Sorry!, which is great for counting, as well as Trouble. My son, who is in third grade now, also enjoyed Snail’s Pace Race, Race to the Roof, and Qwirkle.
