Remember- homeschooling can be almost all fun and games! More joy, less overwhelm, my friends!
Gameschooling can change the entire atmosphere of your homeschool!
Gameschooling provides children with a safe space to practice and build skills in a no-pressure, non-judgmental way. There are no red marks, no corrections, no homework, no pressure from others to perform well. If the game doesn’t go the way you wanted it to, you can start over and try again.
By building a family culture around gaming, you’ll be strengthening relationships, boosting connections, and making memories to last a lifetime! Bonus? Connected children are more cooperative and receptive to learning!
Gameschooling can help children develop the following skills:
- Verbal communication
- Social and interpersonal skills
- Learning to lose – and win- with grace
- Logic skills
- Critical thinking
- Strategy and planning
- Focus and attention
- Creativity and imagination
- … and so much more!
