Show Notes

I absolutely adore classroom games and play them super often. I can turn almost any topic into a game. It’s so much fun for both the students and me. I also play them with any age or level of students because they’re so versatile.

 Welcome to our mini-series on classroom games. We’ll be talking about the best games to play in which situations and for focusing on which skills in the coming weeks. But first, I wanted to talk about why you should be playing games in your classroom on a regular basis.
