2 Q UESTIONS TO CONSIDER Why should we (or shouldn’t we) use games in the classroom? How should we select appropriate learning games? What are some games that could be helpful in the classroom? What other questions do you have?

3 A GREE OR D ISAGREE ? The classroom should be a serious and quiet place at all times so that students can learn the most possible. Games should be used every day. If you’re not sure what to do for your lesson, use a game! Children might feel nervous if they are asked to compete in a game, so you should not use games. Competition is not appropriate for the classroom. Competition is fun and can be used appropriately.

4 W HY SHOULD WE USE GAMES IN THE CLASSROOM ? 1. Games are FUN! They help to lower the affective filter. 2. Games are MOTIVATING! They intrinsically pique interest as students learn through play. 3. Games are CHALLENGING! They can challenge students to be responsible for their learning and knowledge in a new way. 4. Games are INTERACTIVE! They inherently create situations in which students interact with each other. 5. Games are REPETITIVE!

5 H OW SHOULD WE SELECT APPROPRIATE LEARNING GAMES ? 1. Choose your language and/or content objective. 2. Plan for assessment. How will you ask students to show what they have learned in your lesson? What exactly will students be able to do at the end of the lesson? 3. Create a game or use a game that someone else has created that will allow your students to meet that objective. 4. Consider the materials and time that you will need. Make sure to leave time at the end for reflection on the game as a class. 5. Play the game with your students!
