Hello everyone. Now that the semester is over and break has begun, it’s time to get into a good game or two.  I’m a big fan of games – especially ones that engage you with words. Any activity that helps you build your vocabulary will help you be a better reader and a better writer. So go ahead and enjoy some game time – it’s college prep, right?

Here are a few of my favorites….

Scategories, Scrabble, Banangrams and Upwords are classics that you might already have on the shelf.  Finish Lines will brush you up on famous quotes and Poetry for Neanderthals is just fun with words. Or, you can go old school with Mad Libs. 

If you like your games in the tech realm, try the insanely fun app Words with Friends. 

Of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention getting into a good book or two before classes begin again.

Happy Holidays and I’ll see you in 2021.
