      The hardest part about picking games out for small children, is that, as a teacher, I believe the game should be totally a game of luck, not talent! It is just too hard to keep beating a child in a game, again and again, because you are older and wiser. . .

      without LETTING them win once in a while! That’s not the right thing to do. It is an important lesson to learn in


      life, that people do not always win.

      But, if given a fair chance to start with, everyone who tries has a good chance of winning. So, I believe that ‘FISH’ is a great game!

      When children are playing, they can do it alone, without supervision, after learning the simple basics.

      If a child is playing the game with an adult, the adult has to rely on luck, not craft to win the game, and this is the point of the review! Small children should, when playing games with adults or older children, rely on games that require LUCK. It isn’t fair to put an older child and a small, younger child together to play a game such as checkers.

      Obviously, that is a game that requires thinking ahead, and using reason. To put a 3 year old against a ten year old on such a game, is pointless.

      It could ...

      TEACH, “I am not smart”, or it could teach, “He had to LET me win, before I could win”. That is not good.

      Children should leave a game feeling as if the game was fair. The game should always be fair.

      Let me make this point so very clear: If you are playing games that make it so you need to LET a person win, you have just taught that person that he/she isn’t

      smart enough to win such a game on their own. That is horrible to teach.

      Teach children that they are as smart as the next guy, or maybe, even smarter! Just give them a fair chance, by having the small children play games of sheer luck. That is not a hard thing to do, and it makes the child learn and grow up with an attitude that says, “I can do it, too!” That is SO important! Now, “Go Fish!”
