Let’s travel back in time, to a place where there was fun to be had without the screen, nor the sounds, of the machine in the palm of my hand. Where actual friends would gather, face to face no less, to laugh and play, without the need to ask them to put the phone away.
Revive the pleasure of fun gatherings among your student friends with board games to put the boredom away.

Race to Planet X is a new board game, perfect for kids K-3rd grade. Families can play a quick game in 15 minutes, and score some major parenting points for non-screen family time that also doubles as math practice for the kids. The game’s number bond focus is also great for classrooms looking for games that support common core.

Dixit is a fast passed game, that can be played by students of all ages. I like that when is someone’s turn, the rest of the players still participate, making it a very entertaining experience. Counting points is easy as well as the instructions. We’ve had fun playing Dixit with 5 of my kids ranging from 10 to 19 years old. As the main ingredient is creativity, it can be played equally regarding the age of each player.

This is a great game for students because it requires you to think outside the realm of your usual vocabulary. Likewise, it will challenge students and force them to work on their spelling. It’s also quite competitive and sometimes very tricky. Just keep in mind that it’s important to have a dictionary handy while you’re playing.
