My daughter and I had a good bit of fun today as we played a few fill in the blank games. O.K., here is the truth, I was playing the games and she walked in on me. She said, “Oh, those are easy.” Well, that was grounds for a challenge. The competition started. We played middle school geometry first. I got 9 out of 10 and she got all 10. Next we played 10 Largest U.S. Cities. I missed one and she missed two. Finally, we played 10 Largest U.S. States. We both got them all correct.
Games are a fun way to academically engage your child without it being too much like work. Friendly competition makes it even more fun. Since back-to-school is just around the corner, the games are a great way to find out areas you might need to fine tune a little. I think we need to work on U.S. cities!
Here is a list of Which Word? or Fill in the Blank games you might find fun to play.
Leave a comment telling me which games you and/or your child played. Which was your favorite?
