Campbellsville Elementary School students are learning by playing games.
In CES Explorers, students recently played a game to help them learn comprehension, categorizations and more.
CES first-graders are learning this school year with the Expanding Expression Tool, which asks students to think about objects in seven categories, including what group does the object belong to, what does the object do, what does the object look like, what is the object made of, what are the parts of the object, where does a person use or see the object and what else is known about the object.
To help them become familiar with the EET, students played a game similar to Candyland, in which students rolled a dice and moved their game piece forward.
Students then drew a card to see a picture of an object and then answered a question from one of the seven EET categories, based on which color on which they landed.
CES Explorers is one of several activity classes that students have each week. Miriah Cox, who leads the CES Explorers class, teaches students about reading strategies, vowel sounds, parts of speech, reading comprehension and much more.
