Getting Ready for Game Day

I got this idea from an old friend and thought it was a wonderful idea. So what is it? We will have a game day. Putting away written school work and bringing out the games. Of course, this will still be educational. Let's just not let the kids know, ok? *wink*

On that note, the UPS man came over today. Have you seen the Professor Noggin's card games? I got a whole bunch of these. I also got a game called Budget. Yep, there is math. We also have Allowance for math. We now have cards for geography and science. I already had a few other games and puzzles to round out the day.

For the day that comes where we just don't feel like doing regular school I have something fun to throw in to boost our excitement and have fun while still learning. Now, I wonder when game day will be? hhhhmmmmmm

Exciting....the kids love game days, we actually do a game night in the evening, I guess hence game NIGHT. Anyway you'll have to let me know what other games you get. The kids should appreciate such a resourceful flexible, mum

Yay! My kids love game days too...we play a lot of card games lately since we've been sick for a week! ;-) But Friday last week when I was at the grocery store, of course this one has lots of toys for sale for the kids to look at and ask about, but this time I actually bought something! I got a Mr. Potato Head bucket of 3, which I have never bought before, and then I bought Yahtzee! We have played that a couple times a day already! The kids are loving it. And I am realizing what kind of math my kids need to work on hehehe ;-)

Great that there are fun things to do and learn at the same time!

What a great idea! I'll have to have a game day at my house. Since we generally do school 4 days a week (M-Th), Friday would be the perfect day for it-- but starting next Friday. ;-)
