Games to Buy

Just one more post about games and then I'll give it a rest for a while! Over the past few weeks, I've shared a lot about different games and activities you can make or put together. We've covered general game resources, math games, geography games, word games and logic games. With the exception of the logic games, I haven't talked a lot about resources you can purchase. Obviously, it's not financially feasible for most of us to buy tons of educational games, especially if they're geared to a specific skill or topic and won't be used very long. I usually try to get games like that on clearance or at consignment sales and save my money for resources that will get some good use from both of my kids. Here are a few of my favorites:

Logic Games

Logic Games

This week I'm sharing one of my favorite game days with you: Thinking Thursday! This is the day for logic and critical thinking activities, and there are so many fun ones out there! Unlike the other subject areas, I have not used a lot of online resources for these activities because I already had quite a few books and games before, but I have started a Pinterest board for them, because there are plenty of free materials out there. Below I've listed some of the books and games we've enjoyed the most, and if you have more ideas, I'd love to hear them!

Geography Games

Geography Games

This week we're on to geography-themed resources! I will admit that at first, I had no clue what I was going to do with this, other than review map skills. Math seems to naturally lend itself to games, but geography? I was stuck. After a little time on Pinterest, though, I felt better. Who doesn't?! Really, though, I realized that if I focused on fun geography-related activities and not just games, I had so many more options.

Math Games

I've shared my game plan with you and some general ideas for getting started, and for the next few weeks I'm going to share some subject-specific resources that I hope will help you! This week, I'm focusing on math.
