Today, over on The Homeschool Sisters Podcast, Kara and I are discussing gameschooling. Kara wants to be a gamer but things keep getting in the way… like directions. In our gameschooling episode, we share ideas for adding more games to your days for learning and fun. We talk favorite games old and new, games for certain subjects like science and math, why it’s OK to NOT love a game even if everyone else does, and the many, many lessons kids can learn from growing up playing. So join us as we roll the dice, spin the wheel, and share easy tips for incorporating more games into your homeschool- such a fun way to learn together!
And guess what?! We are giving away three of our favorite ThinkFun games: Balance Beans, Rush Hour, and Clue Master. These are three of our favorite one-player games and the giveaway is perfect timing with the holidays on the horizon. So, head over to The Homeschool Sisters, chat with us, and then enter to win!
Gameschooling is Fun AND Educational
