Hands-On Educational Games and Activities for Children and Youth 

Providing multiple modalities of learning increases student learning outcomes, especially for kinesthetic hands-on learners.  Engaging with a child in learning through play also increases attachment.  Below are age-appropriate off-line activities for students and their caretakers. 


Academic Enrichment for Children and Youth Winter 2020

Enrichment packets are designed to support students in their learning outcomes.  Before presenting activities to a family or struggling student, please consider the student's barriers to successful learning outcomes, educational support, and grade level.  Discussion with the student's caretaker and teacher will guide you in presenting appropriate material as needed.
