All of the activities in this room are designed for all the children to be able to play together without drawing attention to the varying culture, gender or education differences. Because this age is just beginning to look for differences among themselves (i.e. why is child A darker than me, why does child B have red hair) it is important that we create a place where they can all feel equal and still participate in learning activities. ROOM #4 – Middle/Late Childhood Room Charades The child would be given the title of a book, a famous person's name, a saying, a movie title or a song title to pantomime, choosing something with which the others will be familiar. The player then pantomimes the word or phrase he's chosen to the other players while they guess at what it could be.

COMMUNITY CENTER 7 A 2016 study was done on the effectiveness of games in education, the study concluded that those who participated in the game based learn did no worse od better than the participants in the lecture-based learning categories. While this study did not show that learning using games had a better result than traditional lecture type learning, it did show that it is just as effective (Trevino R, Majcher C, Rabin J, Kent T, Maki Y, Wingert T 2016) Become more confident about speaking in public, practice correct pronunciation of many different words, learn to think and speak quickly and uninhibitedly, practice parts of speech, practice syllables (if games include telling players how many syllables in each word),think about the arrangement of words, explore synonyms when their guesses come close but aren’t quite right, explore homonyms or rhymes if games include “sounds like” clues. Hang Man/ The Price is Right Children are given the letter count and word spacing (if you are playing the price is right style) for the word or phrase they are trying to guess. Each child may take a turn asking if a particular letter is contained with in that word or phrase. If it is not than the hangman would begin to be drawn, or a turn taken away depending on which style is being played. Once enough letters are accrued and the child thinks they can solve the word or puzzle they may use their turn to guess. The winner of the round will become the presenter for the next game. Games such as tis promote learning how to identify possible words when only given a few letters combined with vague hints (i.e. person, place, thing, activity) this with also promote vocabulary expansion and comprehension. Helps with spelling and word relationship comprehension LinkIt Card Game. A matching game

COMMUNITY CENTER 8 This simple card game can be played with up to eight players. The game is played with two decks of cards that are printed with a variety of objects. One object on each card is linked to a related object on cards from the other stack. This game requires players to use their logic and memory skills to “find the link” between the cards. Because the game is also timed with the winner being the one with the most correctly linked items, it also requires the players to think and react quickly.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
