A favorite tradition around my house is “Game Night”.
Once a week we spend an hour together as a family and play board games.
Not only is it a fun way to spend time with my kids, but I’ve found that there are tons of great lessons and life skills to be learned through board games.
Through Monopoly, my kids have learned about money management and investing.
Charades is a test of communications skills, and the ability to think outside the box.
Our favorite game for building literacy, vocabulary, and word skills? Boggle!
During a particularly intense game of Boggle last week, I got to thinking that it would be a perfect game to incorporate into a typing classroom.
Boggle is easy and fun to play and would help students practice word formation and speed typing simultaneously.

Maybe it will even become a typing class tradition!
