Participants will learn a variety of literacy games and activities they can use with their Grade 4 to 6 students to help them with their vocabulary development, reading, spelling and proper use of grammar. Cards, dice and letter tiles will be used as manipulatives for these hands-on activities. Participants will come away from this workshop with skills, knowledge and expertise necessary to implement the games and activities back at their school site, quickly and easily. Great session for classroom teachers (especially those with ESL students) as well as resource and special education teachers. Student work samples will be shared and a handout will also be provided. Come prepared to play and learn some literacy games and learn why recent brain research indicates games aren't just a good learning strategy, but the most efficient learning strategy.
