BF Day Boardgamers is a new after-school club at BF Day. We are a small group of parent volunteers who love playing games and would like to host a learning, social, and fun after-school experience.
We are going to start out small with three meetings in December to sort of “play test” our ideas and format.
Our objectives are:
- Create a fun, and engaging environment that promotes the learning process.
- Growth in friendly and healthy competition, gracious winning, and respect for
- Engage logic, math, communication, and problem solving strategies.
- Engage reading comprehension, converting read materials into action and
- Experience true teamwork.
We’ve all been told that making mistakes is how we learn. A game setting is a perfect environment to make mistakes. It engages the learning process by getting feedback from your peers, seeing other options to a problem, and good old fashioned trial and error. A game gives us the freedom to fail without harmful consequences. And that, is how we learn.
Oh, and by the way, it’s massive fun, too.
