Active Board Game Centers

Do you ever use board games in your centers? I love to use games so much that each Friday I write a Board Game Friday blog post on Raki’s Rad Resources with suggestions about how to use a particular game in your classroom. Normally, I use a new game in small group first. Then, once my students are comfortable with the rules of the game, and the various variations, I put it in a center to continue reinforcing the skill while students think they are playing.
At this time of the year, it is important to keep kids active, so here are two blog posts I recently wrote about how to use Twister in your classroom. Stop by and check them out to see how to use Twister for skills well beyond recognizing colors and increasing flexibility. You can use Twoster to practice skills like making numbers, addition, graphing, creating words, and making sentences. Click on the pictures to read more.
