Lakeshore's Computer Games are a Hoot! Win One!

I had never tried one of their games because I thought I had to have a SMART Board. However, I found out that you can run them on a computer! My kids have had a blast checking them out too. The 'Phonics Quiz Game Show' is one of their favorite games.

It allows the students to choose their box and gives them a question. Here is an example of one of the questions. Here's what happens if they get the answer wrong:



I also had my kids check out 
'Can Do! Reading Game Show: Phonemic Awareness' and they loved it. I think the robot/space theme was a lot more up their alley!

They loved spinning the wheel to get their category. It seemed like Wheel of Fortune in there!

  2. I have some of Lakeshore's other games and my students love them! I project them on my Promethean board and use them as fast finishers. Their apps are great too!

  4. I have a few Lakeshore Computer games (not shown in your post!) that my kids LOVE! They choose to use these activities over doing other non-academic activities for rewards and indoor recess. I would love to add more games to my collection!!

  12. My students absolutely love playing the one Lakeshore game that we have, Tiki Challenge. The best thing with that game is that they have fun playing it and don't realize that they are learning too!

  23. I too thought it was only for the smartboard. The fact that you can just use it on the computer is fantastic! I would love to win because kids always seem more engaged when using technology and they are so good at it!

  26. I am so jealous! My school district does not allow us to use outside computer resources (cd-roms) on our computers at school and Lakeshore makes so many great things:( Glad that you get to enjoy them with your class:) Hopefully my district might make it easier in the future...
