Often during the school year we are so busy with school and homework and sports that we don’t either have the time to play educational games or take the time to play educational games. In fact, game playing often doesn’t enter your mind because life is just too busy. But, now it’s summer. It’s breathing time. It’s time to take a break from the routine. It’s the perfect time to play educational games.
Benefits of Educational Games
When you play games with others you learn how to get along with others. When you play games with others you learn from watching others take their turns and they learn from you taking your turn. That is what is called reciprocal teaching and reciprocal learning.
Now, what if you were to play that were educational games that taught specific skills? You would get even more benefit from educational games. You would have the opportunity to have fun and improve your skills at the same time. Your reading comprehension would improve, your writing skills and English grammar skills would improve. Even your math skills would improve. And, you would have fun with others at the same time. When you play educational games you also build learning skills.
All Educational Games Are Not Created Equal
1. Is the game fun
2. Does it have real learning involved?
3. What do families that have played it say about it?
“I like that The Sentence Zone can be used with any English program and does not require special equipment or supplies. The Sentence Zone is a good one and could benefit many students.” Tina R
“Our family loves The Sentence Zone. As we were putting the game away, my children began brainstorming ideas for fun variations of it. They want to play it again with the silliest sentence receiving bonus points. They’d like to do a round where you must only use the cards on top of the deck. Another idea was to try and create the saddest sentence. There are so many ways you be creative with this game and learn while having fun. It’s a simple game but I’m impressed with how well it worked with my family.” Lori S
“The Sentence Zone game is a relaxed, fun loving game that the family can and will enjoy. It is slow paced, so everyone can truly think their way through each level and have the enjoyment of success! After all, that is what the game is all about!” Mary P
