If you’ve followed Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers for more than, oh, five minutes or so, you probably know that I am a huge fan of hands-on learning.
Games make learning fun. Having fun gets kids engaged and being engaged aids retention. During the preschool and early elementary years, we used games nearly every day. I particularly enjoyed being able to use games to teach reading. There are so many options and most of the games we played were easily adaptable to a wide variety of skill levels.
