As my children get older, we love to use games in our homeschool to reinforce math, science, spelling, geography, logic/reasoning and so much more. Sometimes we just take a day away from our book work and play games. It is fun for them, a break for me and we are still learning, which is a WIN in my book!
Since games can be educational as well as fun, we often put games on our birthday and Christmas lists. My kids love getting games for gifts and these are a few of our favorites and some that are on our list for the Elementary ages!
Spelling & Reading Games
Snap Circuits Jr. – This is not a game, but totally worth getting!
Logic & Reasoning Games
