Reflection: Positive Reinforcement Practicing Science Vocabulary - Section 2: Pictionary


Students love games and I like to provide time to play games with students.

There are a variety of reasons to play games in the classroom including:

1. Students learn through the process of playing games. Games are a method for them to understand new concepts, be actively engaged, and grab their attention. Games reinforce the concepts and promote critical thinking.

2. Students learn a variety of social skills when playing games. Some social skills are teamwork and learning to take turns.

3. Games are engaging. They provide meaningful, repeated practice of the concepts.

4. Students develop connections when students play games. Students connect to the concept when they speak, listen, write, and/or draw about the concept. They also form positive memories of learning. Games can be positive, fun, and even silly!
