Would you like an effective, fun way to reinforce math and social skills in your elementary classroom? If so, it's time to get "hands on minds" on as you develop your own easy-to-play board games. Join Leigh Anne Kraemer-Naser as she explores the value of board games as a teaching tool for math and social skills. She will provide an overview of best practices in manipulative math and demonstrate strategies for creating dynamic, effective games by integrating basic skills, manipulatives, and a simple template that will be available for download. Leigh Anne will also showcase several tried-and-true games in counting, subitizing, operations, and logic before giving you tips and tricks to start making your own.

I love the game ideas...I do teach a bit higher grade but as she was presenting my mind was going in all directions as how I could put a twist on these activities.

Games based learning is my kind of math. I agree that children learn more with a hands on approach as well as having fun.
