Why Were Your Kids Playing?
The blog post I read by Mr. Spencer was titled “Why were your kids playing games?” This was a good post to read, because Mr. Spencer is letting his students play games in the classroom. The games he chooses go along with the lessons he is teaching. The principle got on to Mr. Spencer once before for playing hangman in the classroom. The principle calls Mr. Spencer into his office and tells him he said “No Games.” The principle goes on and says that even surgeons and soldiers play games to help them remember things. Mr. Spencer says games are great ways to get students to remember content that is being taught. I could not agree more that games get students involved and more important, they are learning while doing something other than sitting through a boring lecture.
Don`t Teach Your Kids This Stuff. Please?
