Homeschooling Game Ideas

I am home schooling this year. I like to combine a lot of things together to make subjects more fun. We are studying words and structure. We had a container of Jenga sticks that had not been used in years. We decided to put verbs, nouns, etc. on them and then make sentences with them.

This is a way to do art, and learn at the same time. It is also really fun to make messages out of them after they dry, which is about four hours.

We also made a verb bandana. Puffy paints are really popular around here. Now so is studying grammar!

I'd like to get some of the games like Diner Dash and such for my kids to use as part of their homeschooling. I was wondering if anyone knew what I could use them as subject-wise.


Math, Economics, etc. Their a little young now but I like to play them too! Thanks in advance for all your help.

I'm a huge "Jeopardy" fan, and Alex Trebec frequently mentions the "Jeopardy" board game. I believe it can be adapted to different subjects and grade levels.
The "Jeopardy" website is unfortunately inaccessible to my screen reader, but I'm pretty sure you could find info there.
Hope I've helped!

First of all go to they have great games you can try for an hour. I love the hidden ones where you have to find certain items and excuse me but anything you do with the kids is a learning experience. They have alot of games on the computer that are free. Another one is have games kids can play and learn at the same time.

Found a great web site for teachers. Templates of many popular game shows (example Who Wants to Be a Millionaire) that you could add your own questions.
