Academic Games for Gamers

My students need additional reading skills review games. Academic games are a great way to engage students in reviewing content.

My Students

My fourth grade classroom is a second home to a wonderful group of fourth graders. I also teach a cluster of gifted students. You would think that our school would have an abundance of resources because we are a fairly new school (opened in August 2016). Unfortunately, we do not!

My students are technology savvy, yet they still love academic board and card games.

They are thrilled to use games during literacy centers. I am grateful for the opportunity to watch them fall in love with learning and mature into tomorrow's leaders.

My Project

The skills associated with the complex cognitive tasks of argumentation and reasoning require that students practice them often in order to fully master them. Therefore, I enjoy using academic games in the classroom, as they facilitate the practice of these necessary skills while simultaneously heightening student engagement and achievement. The Can Do! games has two teaching strategies to maintain student engagement—academic games and friendly controversy.

Researchers over the last 20 years found that mild pressure created through friendly controversy can help students focus.

These games can be used as an individual game, where students compete against one another, or a group game, where a class is divided into groups, each of which competes against the others.
