Teacher Tuesday: Engage the Brain: Games-- Language Arts grades 6-8 (Marcia Tate)

This week's Teacher Tuesday post is for a book that I treat like my teaching Bible. If you were to come in my classroom, you would notice right away that I love games, crafts, projects. I love hands-on learning. It's pretty clear that I try to make my learning experiences as hands-on and active as possible. (So the kids "get it" and I don't get bored.)


Engage the Brain: Games: Language Arts: Grades 6-8


This exciting new resource offers fun, innovative games in language arts. Based on the most recent brain research, the games engage students in becoming active, motivated learners.






When I was at IRA a few years back, I came across Engage the Brain: Games-- Language Arts grades 6-8 by Marcia Tate. It changed my life.

Since then I have been using the activities in this book for all sorts of things-- not just classroom use. I use some of the easier games with my own kids when we need boredom busters (that don't involve electronics). I've even adapted some of the activities for our Literacy Day fieldtrips. You could use these activities to encourage literacy at home for your students. How awesome would a parent workshop on family literacy be? The possibilities are endless.

I highly encourage all teachers to grab a copy of this book. Don't teach Language Arts? No worries! There are other subject areas in this series! Math, Social Studies, and Science are all represented.
