On the Blog Today - Games, Games, Games - Having fun and learning too!
Anyone who knows me knows that I love to play games. Board games, parlor games, card games, and I have a serious Candy Crush addiction (although actually not so much on the video games). My family has always played games. We play board games and card games at home and at family Hannukah there is nothing more sacred than the parlor games (Charades and Pictionary) that we play after dinner with the entire group of cousins. I was listening to our wonderful speakers, Chris Abildgaard and Ben Chaback from the Social Learning Center the other night and they were talking about ways that they use games in their groups to help teach and support social learning, social thinking and appropriate social behaviors. Light bulb moment!
