This afternoon, in our weekly teacher-training meeting, I showed some of the primary teachers how to play some of the games we have on our game shelf. A few of the games have instructions only in English, so many of the teachers didn't know yet how to play them.
We played Set and Blokus, both mathematical games that involve geometry and pattern recognition. Then we played a modified version of Scrabble using Bananagrams tiles.
The teachers really enjoyed Scrabble, creating words like "asosi" (a kind of medicinal plant), "revolte" (to rebel), and "lobe" (to splash water).
