books for parents, tutors, and teachers
TI found these books, Games for Learning and Games for Math, at the library. Peggy Kaye is the author and has several more similar books. Her books are geared toward students in grades kindergarten through third, though some activities could be used with younger or older children. Both books are easy to read, and are not necessarily meant to be read from cover to cover. I like the Games for Learning better, just because it covers math, reading, social and science. It doesn't take a lot of time or special materials to prepare the games, which is nice. Kaye's books were published in the 1980's and 1990's, but the games are original and new to me. If you are a parent or teacher of younger elementary children, these books would be worth looking for. Kaye also has three other books-Games for Reading, Games for Writing, and Games with Books that could be worth looking for as well. These books could also be used by parents over the summer to help keep their children engaged in learning.
