The Magic Hat – Mid-Week Focus – Games Research

Hats off to teachers and to research for my blog – time-consuming but well worth it!

I’m researching GAMES TEACHERS USE TO CATCH AND KEEP KIDS’ ATTENTION. My research will form a base for an upcoming Mid-Week Focus post.

If you play a favorite game with students in your classroom, please send a comment about it or a link that I can follow to enrich my writing. Or you can email me at

Remember, Attentionology reaches readers in 113 countries around the world. That’s a BIG educational community in which we can share ideas that help children learn and grow to be the best they can be.

If you send an idea, please let me know if you’d like me to credit you in the post that includes your idea. Thanks!

Talk with you again soon,

Quick tips for common classroom conundrums: K-5
Situation: Students continue to use lackluster verbs in their writing.

Solution: Show toy cars and pretend to make them zip across a page, telling the class that good writing includes action words (verbs) that have "zip." Ask the class for examples of "zippy" verbs like zoom, race, flash, rush, etc.
