A Great Family Game With a Learning Twist

If there is one game which the majority of families own it's Monopoly. And while you may have a love/hate relationship with the game, there is no denying that it is a great way to keep the family entertained (whether it's through excited yelling or frustrated dice rolling). However, did you know that you can turn this activity in a learning game for your youngster? The Tutoring Center, Powder Springs GA has a post to show you how. What you will need:
  • A Monopoly set
  • Post-its or pieces of scrap paper and tape
How to play:
  • Once you have everything, use the stick part of the post-it notes or a small piece of scrap paper and tape to cover the properties on the board. On the paper, change the cost of the property from round numbers to uneven or unfamiliar numbers.
  • Do the same with any of the rent amounts which are payable.
  • Instill a rule which allows the person who lands on 'Free Parking' 5 seconds to calculate a set percentage of the money in the middle of the board for a chance to win extra.
Now that you are ready to play, designate your student to be the banker and to handle all of the game's financial transactions. While the three changes may seem small, they can and will make it difficult for your student to keep track of the games finances. Not just because the amounts being exchanged are unfamiliar and require more thought, but the pace of the game will work to keep them thinking quickly,  helping to improve their response time.
