Game Day

Finally, the last day of school before vacation is finally tomorrow.  We'll be spending the morning writing Thank you notes, and designing 2012 calendars, but I'll be giving the kids some time for playing strategy games.  Some of the games are not easy for second graders, but I love the games that encourage thinking!  These are some of my favorites:
Yahtzee
Jenga
Apples to Apples
Scrabble
Battleship
Chess/ Checkers
Mancala

What are your favorite strategy games? 
Do the kids get to play in school?

  1. Oh yeah! We have Game Day! It's an AR celebration or a behavior reward. I have Trouble, Battleship, checkers, Yahtzee, Mancala, Othello, and a host of other educational games that I bring out. I also allow my students to bring in their favorite game and a favorite snack if they choose to share with the entire class on Game Days. :) So much fun for the students with little or no cost...
