About the Engage the Brain Series

This practical resource gives teachers the tools they need to plan lessons based on how the brain learns best. Based on tested, research-based strategies, this book offers a variety of literacy activities, incorporating games to help students make sense of and reinforce learning. These activities give students the opportunity to not only play but also construct and design their own games, greatly increasing brain connections to the content. These strategies make a real difference to students' energy, motivation, and achievement.

Engage the Brain: Games, Grade One contains games based on national academic standards for language arts, math, science, social studies, physical education, art, and music.
