New Super Fun Games!

on September 20, 2015

We love games.  When we play games we practice the skills we have learned.  If you have not played these 2 games with your students, give them a try.



Tapple requires self-control and fast thinking.  When we play, I hear self-talk (“I need to keep that word in my head for my next turn, not give it away”). The Lunch Buddies are tempted to “blurt” and they give in to that impulse sometimes but the more we play the more opportunities we have to practice controlling that impulse.  We also practice voice modulation while playing Tapple.  It is easy to get out of control as the letters are eliminated and the excitement builds.



So much fun!  So much flexible thinking!



The Lunch Buddies are finding it difficult to decide which of the newest games they like best!

The fun begins with choosing team names.  The teams then work together to solve a set of 10 clues.  The “Buzzword” is contained in the answer to each clue.  We are not using the timer because everyone has a different processing speed.  Maybe we will start using it soon.

BTW- as of yesterday, this little blog has been viewed over 250,000 times.  I remember how excited I was when I got 1000 views!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
