Seven Steps to a Happy Last Day of School - Part 2: Games

If you're getting ready for the end of the school year, I'm sure things are a little crazy. It's hard to enjoy the last day of school when there is so much to do, but I've got a few ideas for you.

By this point, you've probably packed up most classroom games, but it's a good idea to keep out a couple of favorites for a happy last day of school.

I prefer games that include a little reading and a little thinking!

Apples to Apples is my group's favorite game. I love it because it creates lots of giggles, but also has some thinking skills and strategy. It even has a little reading! (Click the image: this is an Amazon affiliate link.)


Battleship is also a favorite! There's not a whole lot of reading, but there's plenty of thinking involved! (The image is also an Amazon affiliate link.)


They don't have to be store bought games! 
They can be learning games you've had in your classroom, that the kiddos love to play over and over again!

Here's a freebie that celebrates reading and the books the children have read during the year: Reading Celebration Game Sample.


The full length game is available here: Reading Celebration Game.

I have a few other blog posts that focus on games:
