Let's play games!

Today during a school meeting we talked about ensuring the children were involved in gross motor activities and making it a part of your everyday curriculum. We often focus on the teaching we do while sitting in the classroom - however the active part of our day opens a pathway to better learning. When we get our blood pumping and get that oxygen flowing - learning becomes augmented. Some of that gross motor activity can come from the simplest of play found in the traditional games we have all participated in as a child. There may also be games we have not been privy to - why not include those in your roster. Even if the game is not gross motor they can exercise the mind. Combining the two can present an adventure in learning!

Paired with today's discussion - I was inspired by this article to post some links on playing games.

Here are some links on traditional games:
