What board games do you play in your home? Now that we are homeschooling I am slowly growing our collection of board games. Board games are more than just games, they can be such fun teach tools for a whole range of different concepts. I have always enjoyed Scrabble and recently introduced it to Jack and Emma and we now play often.
5 Reasons We Love Scrabble
- Scrabble is great for word building. Emma is still learning to read but she is starting to find to words from the letters she picks. They are both also making new words based on the letters they have and the ones on the board.
- It improves vocabulary. Every time we play we discover words the kids don’t know yet. Jack particularly loves finding out the definition of each and every word so we do a lot learning while we play.
- Problem solving is a big part of Scrabble. Scrabble isn’t just about making words, it is about using the board and your letters to make scrabble, which means there is a lot of problem solving happening.
- It improves Maths. Adding up scores is a big part of the game, the point of the game is to accumulate the most points. Emma loves adding up her scores and each time she gets a letter with a high number she has to use it.
- You can play as a family. This word game is great for the whole family to play. We often partner up with a kid or let them play on their own but it is something we can all enjoy.
