My children have played several games this week:

Rush Hour and Tip Over – Nomi and Daniel played this game instead of a math lesson one day when I had extra office work to complete.  They sat in the office with me and worked on these puzzles.  It was good to see them find a level that they found challenging and then to stick at it, by themselves, till they got the answer – regardless of the offers of help they received.

Othello – Nomi and Daniel picked this up in their "waiting" time.  Waiting time is when I am supposedly teaching them but something pulls me away.  At the moment we are learning about patience and one aspect is to use our "waiting" time wisely.  These two haven’t played this game much before so it was good to see them at a new game.

Scategories – We had some friends drop in for a couple of hours.  The girls got themselves organised to play this game.  Though Daniel didn’t join in – he isn’t able to write words just yet – he enjoyed the fun atmosphere.  It is good for him to be soaking in these types of language activities.  We should play this game as a family and Daniel and I could pair up.

Numero – our neighbour/friend dropped in late yesterday afternoon for a "quick" game of Numero with Jessica.  This is a mulit-layered game, so many facets to it.  AB(our friend) has been playing it with a Math teacher friend in town so she is having lots of practice and learning new tips all the time.  Numero is recognised as one of the top math games – we should play it more often.  Now with AB knowing some of its intricacies we may just do that!
