So Many Ways To Use the Digital Games!
Let’s face it, kids love devices, but I think a lot of times we shy away from using technology, because we feel like kids are always glued to a screen. Instead of avoiding it, let’s encourage their desire for technology and use it to help them learn!
Digital games are a great tool because they are so versatile, they can be used in a variety of ways in and out of the classroom. They are especially useful for distance learning!
Circle/Whole Group Time
Digital games are a great way to get your whole class involved in learning. After teaching a skill like digraphs, gather your students on the carpet and pull up the Dunk the Digraphs digital game on the interactive whiteboard. Have students read the digraphs together as a group before letting kids take turns going up to the board to drag the digraph to the correct picture.
Don’t have an interactive whiteboard? No problem. You could either have your students click the answer on the computer, or simply go up to the front and point to the correct answer while you move the pieces on the actual game.
This provides great discussion and think, pair, share opportunities!
Small Group Time
You can also use these games in a small group. Maybe a student needs a little more practice on the concept of greater than or less than. Gather your small group, grab an iPad, and pull up the Greater Gator digital game. Break out manipulatives and dive into the concept a little deeper with those that need it.
If you have a group of kiddos that are ready for a challenge you can use these games as an extension for those that are ready. Maybe you have already covered 10 frames in your classroom, and you have a few students who caught on and are ready for more. Gather your group, grab an iPad, and pull up Pennies in the Piggy Bank 10-20 for an extension by allowing them to go further with the skill using 20 frames.
Once your students are comfortable with a skill like CVC words or sight words and are looking for additional independent practice, include a digital game like Digging for CVC Words or Sight Words Splash in your classroom center time. Kids can use an iPad independently to practice these important skills in a way they will truly enjoy.
Maybe you have a student who is always done before everyone else. It can be hard to plan extra things for them to work on, especially without distracting the other students. But these digital games can be a discrete fast finisher activity that won’t leave a mess of supplies to clean up or any extra work for you.
Using the Emergent Reader digital games, your students can practice reading in a new way! They can even have the reader read to them if they need a little more support. This can be a great tool for differentiation and allows your students to be working with the same material in two different ways (grab my Emergent Reader Bundle for the hard copy of these amazing beginner reader books).
Send Them Home
Another great thing about digital games is that they don’t have to be confined to classroom use. They are great for distance learning! These are a perfect way for kids to continue their learning at home! Assign a game you want everyone working on to practice a specific skill, or give each student a different game to play to work on a topic they need help with.
This makes differentiation a breeze. You no longer have to print 25 different pages so that your students have homework geared toward something they really need practice. You can simply tell your students the name of the game you want them to play!
Each game comes with instructions to make linking them to your Google Classroom™ or Seesaw™ a breeze. If you don’t use either of those platforms, you can follow the instructions to play in Google™ Slides.
There is such a wide variety of games available! Your students can work on skills in many different ways with all of the choices they will have in this digital games bundle! You will always know that they are engaged and learning!
