Come explore the wonder and excitement of competitive Pokémon!
What? Find out what all these cards are about! Children will have the opportunity to enhance their strategy and critical thinking skills through play! The Pokémon trading card game involves high levels of reading, math, logic, planning, and executive functioning skills. Importantly, it also teaches social skills such as communication in game, calling for help, sportsmanship, and winning and losing graciously. After our last meeting, I will be more than happy to organize a field trip to an actual competitive Pokémon event for our group!
Intro Video shows how to play the game:
Who? We highly recommend this club to 2nd and 3rd year students. The game involves reading all the fine print on the cards, and doing multiple math calculations per turn, which can include addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. First years may participate if you feel they are up to this challenge, as well as being able to handle the emotions that go along with winning and losing. Maximum of 10 kids in each 6-week session.
When? Every Thursday from February 21st – March 28th – 4:00PM-5:00PM
If that fills, then every Friday from February 22 – March 29th- 4:00PM-5:00PM
Where? Ms. Joni’s Room (South Campus)
Cost? $50 will cover our time AND a 60-card deck for each child, with protective sleeves and a deck box, and all damage counters and other materials needed to play the game.
