FUN, NEW, Learning Games – a Lyn Lomasi Inspired Blog

 When you think about the ways children learn, you understand that because they are naturally curious, they absorb a lot of what is going on in the world before they ever enter a school-type setting. From the way they pick up language to the way they learn to walk, children learn by observing and imitating.

By the time they learn to walk and talk, "why" and "how" become their two most important words. They want to understand the workings of their world and they want to know their place in it. One of the best ways to teach children without seating them in front of a chalk board is game playing.

Playing games is fun and interactive. It engages children by appealing to several senses: sight, sound, touch, and sometimes even smell and taste. Science has proven that when teaching incorporates more than one sensation, children learn better. Games are excellent educational resources, and the more creative they are, the more fun parents and children will have.

Lyn Lomasi, a writer for Associated Content, writes extensively on childhood and education. Today I would like to introduce you to two of her learning game articles.
