“Break Free in Your Homeschool” has made me think of so many mini posts!
This one is about:
How often do you use games during your home school week?
We used to play a lot of games and for some reason these past few months, games have been an after thought or even pushed right aside.
Children love to play and they also need to play!
Playing provides so much opportunity to lock in knowledge or learn something in a different way and often without realizing just how much they are learning.
Playing board games, as one instance, can offer so much to your home school and it engages both hemispheres of the brain.
Let’s not forget that they are fun and a great way to break free from the same old routine!
Brain Hemisphere Processing:
|Left Side||Right Side|
|Speech||Context of Language|
|Processes external stimuli||Processes internal messages|
I’d also like to add that both hemispheres of the brain will be engaged when the task is more complex, so don’t forget to play games that challenge everyone a little too!
Now when you think of games as not learning, or as a waste of “school time” reference this chart with your game closet…take a look at all the ways your brain is stimulated and challenged! Games are a great way to spend some home school time.
