Gameschooling

Video available on our Facebook page.

Want to bring a little joy into learning? Gameschooling is a great tool to cement concepts and bring fun to your family’s day. Emphasizing learning through play, gameschooling provides educational and life skills like interpersonal communication, critical thinking, cooperation, and you can focus on specific topics that need practice. Whether using as core curriculum or supplementing, gameschooling may be just the thing to encourage your child through positive interaction. The experience-based approach also strengthens retention. Homeschooling really can be all fun and games!
