Who is going to capitalize on the latest craze of Pokemon Go! to start their school year?
I'd love to hear your ideas!
Go!

I'm thinking about replacing my "Quiet Critter" cards with them.

We can definitely incorporate them into math problems:
"So-and-so caught 3 Pidgeys, 2 Evees, and... How many all together?"
You could do as simple or complex as you want.

Geography is a natural use too! They are already looking at local maps to play. Just add whatever vocab is in your curriculum. You could also hang a world map and have kids color the countries that are playing, or (depending on how much your class travels) a state or U.S. map where they pin places they've found rare ones and tell the class something about the place.

Also, there is a thread on here somewhere about bulletin board ideas with them.

I have a bulletin board decorated with laminated Pokemon and will have the kids add their names to the Pokemon they want.

I definitely plan to incorporate math! Great opportunity for both high level (combat power) and low level math (as a pp suggested). Good thing because I'm teaching a combo class and will need to differentiate!

I'm not going to go overboard because I am sure there are some girls in my class (and perhaps some boys) who will not have heard of it, much less played it.

I do love that I have been playing it myself and can actually understand what the kids are talking about! That is rare when it comes to video games, lol.
