Creative Games for Learning: Games for Parents and Teachers to Make.
Karnes, Merle B.
Described for parents and teachers of children 3- to 8-years-old (handicapped and nonhandicapped) are 50 easily constructed homemade learning games. It is explained that the games may be especially helpful in classrooms where handicapped children are mainstreamed with nonhandicapped children. Arranged alphabetically by title, each entry provides the following information: game objective, materials needed, construction directions, game instructions, variations on the basic game, and ideas for game storage. Sample games are "baseball" (comprehension of positional prepositions), "crossing the bridge" (addition and subtraction of simple numbers), "mystery movie" (expressive language through storytelling), and "see through cards" (recognition of part-whole relationships in a component picture).
