With the Christmas Season approaching I wanted to give you some great educational board games. I love how a board game can bring a family together. Board games also teach skills that kids can't learn through computer games.

Typing is becoming a very valuable skill. I learned to type while in school, now my son is learning how to type and he hasn't started school yet. My husband still doesn't know how to type, he pecks. I don't recommend starting your kids on typing until they are 5 or 6 because their hands aren't big enough and they don't have the skills they need. This can be a funway to practice spelling words and a good letter review.

I was searching for spelling games since I haven't found any good ones for a little while when I stumbled upon gamesgames.com. This site is full of all sorts of games. There are ads on the site so make sure you watch what your children are doing on the computer.

This is a neat website, Icivic.org, for grades 5-12. It teaches them how to be involved in their community and different issues that pertain to that age group. They are also doing a contest for the class that earns the most points and from what I see anyone can sign up.

What do you think?? School bans Thanksgiving and Columbus Day holidays because they are 'insensitive' | National News
This is a video I just watched about a school in Boston.
School bans Thanksgiving and Columbus Day holidays because they are 'insensitive' | National News: Fall holidays at John F. Kennedy school were banned for being insensitive to the outrage or parents and students.
