    This is a favorite by all the teachers and students. We purchased kits for over 20 of our Elementary PE teachers and they are so excited. The students are so engaged and the game possibility are endless. A must have!

  2. Sharon Cater

    My students really love this game. After we have used it a couple of times, I give my 4th & 5th graders a time limit and challenge them to see how many different skill their group can cover correctly.

    My students & I love the Skillastics games. It keeps all the students active and on task. They are engaged in what they are doing. It helps them communicate with each other & work together, all while having fun and getting great skill work & physical activity.

    We love basketball skillastics! It has become an integral part of our basketball unit (3-5), and we use the task cards with the littles at stations for ball handling skills. Great, motivational, and fun!

  5. Lisa

    My students are very excited when I bring out a Skillastic Game. They are able to all work on their skills individually while being a team to move around the game board. I get a chance to observe their ball handling skills and ability to cooperate.

  6. Andy

    We purchased the basketball skillastics two years ago and our kids love it, and our teachers love it. We teach in a K-5 building and each grade level is able to do it. Its easy, fun and keeps the students interest throughout the whole lesson. There are extensions up and down for each skill.
