games & stories

I wrote yesterday about our games and reading day and received several requests for more info ^_^

So here are some of our very favorite game day school games...

• Magic & Fairy-Tale Dice (story-telling dice game)
• Fancy Nancy Positively Perfect Parfait Game
• Go Diego Go 1 2 3 Game
• eeBoo Fairies of the Field Lacing Cards
• Zoologic
• Candyland
• Fairy Finds
• Hi-ho Cherri-o
• War (a hi/lo card game - regular deck)
• Scrabble
• Wedgits
• Connectagons
• Cooking Cookies
• Wormy Apples

For our games, I choose. Sometimes I target a certain theme or idea, other times I just choose at random. I try to include at least one favorite of each sweetling. The games we use for school game days are kept in my school closet and are not available to them for every day play.

And some of our most favorite reading day stories...

• Mr Putter & Tabby series by Cynthia Rylant
Chestnut by Constance McGeorge
• Patricia Polacco's books
• the Crinkleroot series by Jim Arnosky
• the Hopscotch Hill series by Valerie Tripp
The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Warner
The Lorax by Dr Seuss

For our reading, I choose a few and let the sweetlings each choose a few. The books we use are all favorites we have read time and again and are books from our own shelves.We space them out all along the day, and we share the reading responsibilities, too (:

We would love to hear about your favorite game day games and reads ♥
