This pillar of my Home Education is easy! Make it FUN.
I can’t always make every subject fun, but there are so many ways to enjoy our school time. So here goes with some of our favorites!
My children absolutely are addicted to these trivia games. You can find the Professor Noggin’s card games here and BrainBox games here. By the way the above links take you to 2 of my favorite places to find fun things for the children. I make wish list and then pass them out to our families for birthdays and Christmas. I would rather the children have one good toy that they will really enjoy than a dozen that are cheap and thrown away within a few weeks.
GAMES, GAMES AND MORE GAMES. The children love fun games, so I keep my eyes open for anything fun that also has teaching or strategy value.
Here are five favorites:
2. Set - One of Kalyn’s favorites
5. Mexican Train Dominoes or just dominoes or cards
Enjoy nature walks as often as you can! We will take a favorite book, or nature journals and pencils along. The children always enjoy these times!!
Take advantage of the unexpected. When we were camping this last month, we found an unexpected mine that the owner (above) loved to talk about. He made his presentation so interested and then afterwards we bought rocks. I wasn’t expecting this learning opportunity, however, it came, I seized it and the children loved it.
Now, I want to hear how you make teaching fun? What are some of your favorite family games? Share, share!!! And have fun!!
