Feed your Students Brain Candy!

This email just made my day – as a former teacher, I get such a thrill knowing our games and puzzles are not only encouraging students to open their minds, they’ve become the carrot (or in this case – candy!) that students looks forward to!  When brain-building games feel more like PLAY and less like work, I say mission accomplished!

Mmmm, Brain Candy!

 

“I know this is taking up valuable time; however, I’d like to let you know that I encourage lateral and spatial thinking as well in my science classes.  I teach junior high and high school science at a small school in Nebraska.  I have a total of 66 students in 6 different science classes; my largest class has 17 and my smallest has 3. 

I try to incorporate my personally-owned ThinkFun games on days that I can accomodate the most students.  There are some days that more than half the class is gone for activities or it’s a shortened day before a holiday.  I want the kids to still be engaged, so I have come up with “Brain Candy” days where they get a “day off” of regular work, but they have the opportunity to stimulate their brains with ThinkFun “candy”.  Thank you for having products that will fit my philosophy!”
