Learning and Sharing

Happy Thanksgiving

on November 26, 2014



Some oldies but goodies came back into rotation last week.

Toys and games are fun, but toys and games are also tools that help children learn about themselves and the world around them.  Play helps a child do the following:

  • Develop gross and fine motor skills.
  • Develop cognitive concepts such as  problem solving, memory and attention skills.
  • Develop language skills
  • Develop social skills such as cooperation, negotiation, turn taking, and playing by rules.


A couple of my students are working on /r/.  /r/ Jenga is a fun way to get in a lot of practice.



I think I got this Jenga game from a few years ago.  I just got an inexpensive set to make a tower for /s/.




These card games from were purchased a few years ago.



The 4th grade groups had fun with these inference games.




Enjoy the holiday!
