10 Great Games to Gift Your 6th-12th Grader (With Language Benefits!)

My game cabinets were getting full at the elementary school I work at, so when I got a bigger office at the middle school, I was ecstatic! I could finally move more games up to my second office since it was larger, which created more room in my cabinets at the elementary school! In addition, my secondary students could finally enjoy playing games more often again like they had in my room when they were younger. We couldn't play the same games, however; they had to be developmentally appropriate for my middle schoolers. As I was looking at the ages of the games I already owned, I thought about my family Christmas each year and how we would decide on a game to purchase and play together. Many of the games that I was bringing with me to the middle school were also family favorites that we had purchased around Christmastime. This is one of my fondest memories around the holidays. So let me share some holiday cheer with you in this list of my favorite holiday games that I also use in speech-language therapy due to their educational value! Continue reading for 10 great games to gift your 6th-12th grader this holiday season!
