I once taught a middle school drama elective at a private academy. Way loads of fun! And for this writing teacher, drama games and creative wring go hand-in-hand! Top 50 Drama Games Unpacked offers plenty of fresh activities for English, drama, and elementary school classes. Use these games to inspire plenty of creative writing!
Good writers develop from good readers. For those of you teaching younger children, I recommend Rainbow Reading Games. I'm sure your school already utilizes a reading and phonics curriculum. Use these games as a supplement for entertaining reinforcement of those foundational reading skills. Many of the students I tutor are starved for an active, hands-on way of mastering phonics and basic comprehension abilities. I'm always looking for the best reading games to use during our sessions.
Try both Math Board Games and Making Math More Fun. Kids need to review math facts and concepts anyway, so these are great for hands-on practice in elementary math classes. Take these games one step further and do what I did with a third-grade class! I developed a RAFT writing prompt based upon these games and the kids wrote and designed their own math games as a review for state testing! They loved it!
Ingram has only played 24 games, so we can only rank him so highly. But since coming back from the two-month absence following his big toe injury he's been splendid, averaging 29 points on 54/44/86 shooting splits over six games in February. -- Brad Botkin
Still one of the league's premier perimeter defenders, Bridges is always eager to pester ballhandlers full-court and shut down passing lanes with his 7-foot-1 wingspan. He is tireless on that end, which makes his iron-man streak extra impressive. But he's spreading his wings on offense, too. In his last 18 games, Bridges has averaged 22.7 points on 60.1 percent true shooting, plus 4.4 assists, including a 45-point explosion right before the break. The shorthanded Suns needed him to create offense, and the new-look Nets need more of the same. Don't call him a 3-and-D guy, even though he's making 40.7 percent of his catch-and-shoot 3s and seemingly never misses in the left corner. -- James Herbert
In the 19 games preceding the All-Star break, Mobley averaged 19 points on 59 percent true shooting, 9.1 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and 0.8 steals in 34.4 minutes. These numbers are obviously encouraging, but they don't capture what's so exciting about his development. This is a 21-year-old big who is already a superstar on defense, and his offensive game is starting to come into focus. Don't worry about Mobley's 3-point percentage or his usage rate just yet. Look at his passing, his reads in the short roll, his strong drives to the rim and his touch when he gets there. -- James Herbert
For all of the questions about how he'd fit with Trae Young, Murray's averaging almost exactly the same amount of points and shots as he did last season. His usage and assist rates are down, understandably, but he's making about 37 percent of his catch-and-shoot 3s and about 47 percent of his long 2s. Atlanta's starting lineup has improved dramatically, thanks largely to Murray's point-of-attack defense. It has remained elite offensively, too. The Hawks have not been able to figure out how to thrive in Murray's minutes without Young, though, which might be more about their depth than it is about Murray himself. -- James Herbert
Holiday has long owned the title of the most underrated player in the league, but that may have to be passed to someone else now that he's finally earned a second All-Star nod, 10 years after his first one in 2013. The Bucks' point guard is arguably the best perimeter defender around, capable of single-handedly changing games on that side of the ball. He's also had to take on an outsized offensive role in the absence of Khris Middleton for much of the season, and is putting up 19.4 points and seven assists per game -- his best marks since arriving in Milwaukee. -- Jack Maloney
After getting snubbed last season from the All-Star Game, and again once the initial rosters were announced, Edwards finally earned that honor as an injury replacement. It's a well deserved recognition, given Edwards has single-handily kept the Timberwolves afloat while Karl-Anthony Towns has been sidelined for all but 21 games of the season. He's seeing career highs across the board, but he's taken major steps on the defensive end. He ranks first in the NBA with 100 steals this season, and he doesn't back down from guarding some of the best players in the league on a nightly basis. -- Jasmyn Wimbish
Remember when critics worried what Brunson would look like without Luka Doncic? Well, in 2023, Brunson has essentially been Doncic's statistical peer. He's averaging only 1.8 fewer points and one fewer assist per game since Jan. 1. Brunson is shooting 2.2 percentage points better from the field and nearly 15 percentage points better from deep. Oh, and since then, Doncic's Mavericks are three games under .500 at 10-13, whereas Brunson's Knicks are five games above .500 at 14-9. Brunson isn't better than Doncic, but he's far closer than even the most devoted of Knicks fans could have hoped for. -- Sam Quinn
Fox's improvement has been essential to Sacramento's success this season, as he's increased his scoring average while seeing his efficiency go through the roof. He's shooting a career-high 51 percent from the field, and has developed into one of the league's most effective pick-and-roll scorers. What has truly separated Fox this season, however, are his insane clutch statistics. He leads the NBA with 5.5 points per game in clutch situations -- a full point better than his closest rival -- while shooting 59 percent from the field. You want the ball in Fox's hands to end games, a situation that has both boosted him to his first All-Star selection and raised the Kings' electric bill. -- Colin Ward-Henninger
The brilliance of Williamson has always been dulled due to his availability, or rather lack of. After missing all of last season with a foot injury, the 2019 No. 1 overall pick has been limited to just 29 games, but those performances been special. It's remarkable how much more dynamic New Orleans' offense is when Williamson is healthy, as the Pelicans were near the top of the West to start the season. When he has played, the Duke product is still shooting north of 60 percent on the season while averaging over 25 points a game, a feat accomplished by only two other players in league history: Charles Barkley and Kevin McHale. Both Barkley and McHale did it once; Williamson did it in 2020-21, and he's on pace to do it again. -- Jasmyn Wimbish
We have published a variety of stories and columns on the controversies of Irving's creation, though his stances do not factor into this ranking. And Irving's role in how a Nets team that had gone 18-2 for a six-week stretch through the holidays wound up selecting the nuclear option just a month after that run won't be forgotten in Brooklyn anytime soon. But the fact remains that he is one of the most-skilled and toughest players to stop. Irving leads the league with an average of 9.8 points scored in the fourth quarter, and the early spikes in his shooting splits -- from 49/37/83 with Brooklyn to 53/43/100 with Dallas -- since forcing a trade to the Mavericks are impressive. Still, you can't help but wonder what the next dose of drama will bring. -- Otto Strong
James is averaging 30 points per game, which is more than he did in any of his four seasons with Miami. He's shooting 59.6 percent on 2-pointers, a higher percentage than he did in any of the first seven seasons in Cleveland. He is averaging the fourth-most rebounds and fourth-fewest turnovers of his career. You can find minor nits to pick here. James is having a down year from deep. He's a relatively inactive defender for significant portions of games. He's not quite as unassailable near the rim as he once was. But rumors of LeBron's demise have been greatly exaggerated. His status as the greatest 38-year-old in NBA history is a given, but the numbers James is putting up rival even what his 28-year-old self was achieving at his peak. -- Sam Quinn
Curry is having another brilliant season that we mostly take for granted: 29.5 points per game on 49/43/93 shooting splits. And that 49 percent from the field is actually 49.5, putting him on the doorstep of yet another 50/40/90 season. So why isn't Curry in the MVP race? The Warriors are a .500 team, in large part because Curry has missed 20 games with two extended injury absences, the second of which he's in the middle of right now. -- Brad Botkin
Embiid has been nothing short of dominant this season. After leading the league in scoring last year, Embiid is at an elite level again with 33.1 points per game, trailing only Luka Doncic's 33.3. In addition to his point production, he's posting 10.2 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.2 steals per outing while putting in work on the defensive end. As a result, he's got the Sixers right in the thick of the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference. He also recently made some major news in Philadelphia by reaching 10,000 career points in the fewest number of games in franchise history. (Yeah, even faster than Allen Iverson.) And if not for Nikola Jokic, Embiid might very well be the big staring down a third straight MVP Award. -- Michael Kaskey-Blomain 041b061a72
