Gameschool. Its a thing. An awesome thing. You can take any subject you want to cover and find a game for it. I’m not kidding. How cool is that?! You could plan out an entire curriculum based solely on games, and Living Books! I like the sound of that! Doesn’t that sound like the best homeschool experience?? Talk about a fun education!
Skeptical? Ok, I understand, but stop and honestly think about how much you remember from playing a particular game. A surprising amount, right? Our brains are hardwired to retain information learned through hands on, enjoyable experiences, and children have been showing us that since day 1. Its absolutely incredible what and how much they learn just through playing.
Fridays are designated as our Gameschool days, and I’m implementing more games during the rest of the week as well. Jump on the homeschool bandwagon! You wont regret it!
Here are just a FEW games you can use as part of your homeschool, or gameschool, to supplement or even replace part of your curriculum. We either have the games on this list or they are in our wish list.
The list doesn’t stop here. There are sooooo many more out there! There’s even activity games, and art games. Are you a gameschooler? Would you like to be? What are some of your favorite games to play?
*TIP. You can find many of these games and more at yard sales and second hand stores!
