Rainy Day Games at New Hope School

Because of the rain today, we had a short PE class and spent the rest of the hour playing games. These girls are learning to play chess with Quick Chess. It's basically a series of chess games that leads beginners through the process of learning how each piece moves and takes opposing pieces.

These boys are playing a version of marbles on small whiteboards. They stagger the whiteboards and make traps between for the marbles to make the game more challenging.

These girls are playing Shoots and Ladders. It's a fun game and great for working on numbers through 100.

What do you like to do on rainy days? We'd love to hear from you in the comments.
