Hello everyone! I’m always scouring the internet looking for innovative, new club ideas! Well this time, Mitch, from Thinking Skills Club found me.
On Thinking Skills Club:
“A teacher-led club where students play online games, develop cognitive skills and have fun.”
Participants will play games that help develop their cognitive skills. They can track their progress and earn incentives along the way including a graduation certificate and t-shirt. Incentives encourage participation and allow children to feel ownership in the program.
If you join or start a club in the summer, membership is free. They also have specials for the fall under their members area.
I tested out a problem solving game called “That Gravity Game.” It was both kid-appealing and educational. What child wouldn’t love navigating a mutant marshmallow man around a a maze? The added challenge is – how does gravity come into play. What changes must you make to navigate your marshmallow man to the end of the maze.
This was just a snippet of what Thinking Skills Club has to offer. If your looking for something new and challenging for the children in your program, I recommend checking this club out.

First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to
ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you
center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my
ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how
to begin. Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!
Can someone help me with making a club for fifth graders like me. Im already in Jr. impact club, Art club, and Dragon news club. But I need something that everyone will love.
Amirah – thank you for your comment! I will look in my arsenal and see what fifth graders might enjoy. I am interested in hearing more about the clubs you have been involved with and they sound intriguing! I’m especially interested in finding out more about Jr. Impact Club.
One of the favorites from our school was the Junior Leadership club. These students would take on some of the responsibilities
to help lead and plan activities and events for the younger students. It was was a great way to build their leadership skills and they quite enjoyed it. Is that a possibility for your school?
