I’m Sorry!

Current Series / June 4, 2007

I honestly didn’t mean to offend anyone on Sunday by my extreme hatred of the game Candyland. Especially those elementary school teachers who swear by the game. The game’s just not for me. Anyway, after church yesterday, I was approached by Cathy Brooks who happens to have an intense affection for the game. Cathy teaches at Cannon School in Concord and has used Candyland for years.

Cathy passionately reminded me that Candyland was not intended for my enjoyment but was meant teach a zillion things to every young mind who plays. (ages 3-6 to be exact)
Here are a few lessons that the game teaches:

  • One to one correspondence
  • Color recognition
  • Shape recognition
  • Parent involvement
  • Turn Taking
  • Sportsmanship
  • Process vs. product

Again, this goes to show you that whenever you miss the purpose you’ll also miss the benefits that maker originally intended. .
