They enhance memory skills, can be used anytime and are great for substitute teachers, free time, and broadening math or English lessons. All the games, exercises and puzzles can easily be modified to suit the needs of various elementary-school grades. These "Quick-Thinking Games” provide a number of different ways to increase children’s concentration through games, and to improve concentration in the long term. The book contains games and puzzles that can be used with groups of children anytime, as pick-me-ups or to fill in breaks.
