Games Graffiti: Language Arts Games to Make for Young Children.
Christenberry, Mary Anne; And Others
This document contains materials for games which are intended to give teachers and parents of young children ideas for making learning games which will provide experiences appropriate to their interests and abilities. While the games may be used by children in small groups, they were designed primarily for the child to explore alone. The games are described and organized in a sequence of three basic concepts: objects can be organized according to shape, color, and size; objects can be organized by their indentity; and objects can be organized according to relationships. These concepts are then developed in a series of 64 games through which the child may discover organizational relationships. The purpose of the games is to help children transfer concrete knowledge into abstract concepts. This document also contains a paper entitled "Language Arts Games as a Bridge to Reading" by Linda Clary. (TS)
