Games Galore...a little play based learning!

Day 2 of trying out this play based learning business went pretty well! I still need A LOT more work and tweaking to figure out how to get that right balance between the play and the learning.

I borrowed this idea from a teacher at another school and the kids went nuts!

Here is what I put out for them:
I put out paper, dice, markers and pencil crayons.
My hope was that they would catch my drift and create some games and boy did they ever!

This is the start of a Minecraft game!

This is "Gummy Land" which looks like just a picture but actually had an elaborate game structure to go with it.

This game even had game cards to go with it!
We did this on a Friday and on the Monday I spoke with a couple parents who said they spent all weekend playing the game!
