Got gift cards? Raki’s Rad Resources has 10 fun and educational game suggestions, including the You’ve been Sentenced! word game

December 28, 2011

I received a slew of gift cards this holiday season. Gift cards are great because the receiver not only gets a lovely present, but also gets to go shopping (my personal fave!).

And apparently, I am not the only one.  Raki’s Rad Resources recently published a fabulous piece about just what to buy with all those cards.

In addition to editing Raki’s Rad Resources, Ms. Raki is an educator teaching Technology Skills and Writing. As a teacher, she focuses on project based, differentiated, brain based learning. Here’s what she had to say about spending those gift cards wisely…

“… my children got some gift certificates for Amazon, and I am going to use them to buy some educational toys to supplement all those non-educational toys that Santa Claus brought.  So, this week’s Top 10 list is on great educational toys to fill your children with.  Lots of them would also make great center stations!

You’ve been Sentenced!

I think my household owns every word game known to man: Boggle, Scrabble, Upwords, Taboo, Very Silly Sentences etc.  However, our personal favorite is You’ve Been Sentenced, where you build all these crazy sentences, trying to see how many words you can use.  We love it because we can play just kids, adults with the kids or just adults – fun either way!”

To see Ms. Raki’s other nine suggestions or to access her teaching resources, please visit Raki’s Rad Resources.
