Teaching with Board Games

I LOVE to play board games with my children, both in and out of the classroom. In addition to encouraging cooperation, turn taking and a variety of other social skills, I find I can often use the games to work on math and literacy skills.  To help others use board games in their classrooms, I have a series of posts on ways to manipulate board games to be great educational centers - for literacy or math in your classroom.  Here are some popular posts on this topic:
