Learning with Games – Elementary

Games have been a big part of our family long before we even considered homeschooling. Games are an excellent way to spend quality time together as a family and have the added bonus of being educational in numerous ways. Even the simplest games teach turn taking and losing/winning gracefully. I get asked questions all the time about games, so I decided to do a Learning with Games Series. This series will feature our favorite games broken down into appropriate age categories.Β  Without further delay lets get started today with our favorite elementary games.
