Students in Lower Elementary are allowed to play one game per day, at any time during their two work periods (morning and afternoon). The games that we put on the shelves for students to choose from are games that encourage strategic thinking and planning ahead, such as chess, checkers, and Yahtzee.

Along with the table in our classroom that always has a jigsaw puzzle on it, these activities offer students the chance to take a break from their academic work while still engaging their minds in productive ways. If possible, we would encourage you to make one or more of these games available at home; not only are they fun activities for the whole family, but you might be surprised by how strategically skilled your child has become by practicing these games at school.
