Do you want your homeschool day to be full of fun and games? But, you’re worried that your kids won’t learn everything that they need to know. What if I told you that your kids can learn through play- playing games?! Gameschooling is simply using games to teach your children everything from addition, sight words, geography, and much more.
I taught my kids how to play games at a very young age because both of them had speech and language delays. Game play was a fun way for them to work on their articulation and communication skills. And, it worked!
So, when I decided to homeschool my children, I knew that playing games were going to be a very important part of our daily routine.
What Are The Benefits of Gameschooling:
Through game play, your kids can learn how to work together, share, take turns, and good sportsmanship. Who doesn’t need to practice how to win and lose with grace?!
Verbal and Non-Verbal Skills:
Playing games can help your children work on how to communicate with others and any speech or language delays. They can also practice following directions and listening.
If you have kids who learn best through hands-on, tactile activities, they will love to play games. And, they will learn too!
From learning about space to practicing multiplication facts, your children can learn almost everything they need to know through game play.
Playing games can help your kids develop their problem solving, strategic planning, logic skills, and much more.
Game play can help children with their focus and attention span. Playing with others can help kids with their behavior, emotions, and impulses too.
