Even More For Free At Learn From Play

I hope you have had just as fabulous a week as I have. In this week's newsletter I look at the results of the game survey, my new blog Why Card Games Are Good For
Children and our latest Free book activities for A Stack of Alpacas and Young Dark Emu.

I am not sure if you had a chance to respond to my survey last week but if you did - "Thank You". From the responses I got I have found that most people would like to see
a Maze game as the next addition to the gaming resources followed by a Find A Word.

We are working on the mazes right now and hopefully I will have a prototype ready to show you next week.

For this week though I decided to sit down and start writing a blog. With over 20 years of teaching experience from children with High Maintenance Special Needs to Gifted
and Talented students from Pre-School to Year 12 and even training teachers at University I have taught it all.

I have a wealth of experience that I would love to share if you have a couple of minutes to discover Why Card Games Are Good For Children. I will take this further next week into specific card games to teach mathematics and then into games for teaching spelling the week after that. Each week I will look at a different topic but the theme will generally be about making learning fun and keeping it relevant for children.

If there is a question you have that you would like me to address or an idea you would like for a child you are teaching please let me know. This can be a parenting issue
where you can't get your 10 year old to write (been there done that) or a teaching issue with a child who can't remain in their seat for more than 5 seconds (also been there). I
have taught everywhere from the roughest schools in London to the most prestigious private schools in Sydney and everything in between. I have seen it all so please try to
throw me a curve ball because I love a challenge.

As always we have released 2 new sets of resources on the site this week. The first is a CBCA shortlisted book and the second a CBCA notable book as shown below. Click
on either image to see the resources and interactive memory games for these books.

Until next week please stay safe and share the Learn From Play site with as many educators as possible because every person who becomes a member puts us one
person closer to adding new games to the site for everyone.
