Finding ways to teach your kids at home can be daunting. In addition to keeping your kids engaged in their home learning, you also have to make sure they understand their lessons.
And while not all learning activities will be fun for your kids, there are a few simple ways to make their at-home lessons a little less tedious.
These five tips for making learning at home fun are great ways to get your kids excited about at-home learning.
How to Make Learning at Home Fun:
1. Cater to Their Interests
Taking the time to learn about your kids’ interests and strengths is a great step toward making learning more fun. When you understand the things that get your child excited about learning, you can begin to incorporate more of those activities into their at-home learning routine.
If you child loves drawing, for example, let them draw out their math problems to help them conceptualize the problem before they solve it.
2. Relax the Schedule
Keep in mind that learning at home does not have to mimic your child’s school day. Keeping a more relaxed schedule may help relieve some of the stress associated with learning from home.
While it’s a good idea to maintain a routine each day, letting them work through their assignments at their own pace is a great way to make their learning experience more fun.
3. Offer Choices
Although your students probably have a selection of tasks they must complete each day of at-home learning, offering them choices in their studies is another simple way to make learning more fun.
Letting your child chose the order in which they complete their assignments, for example, is an easy way to make learning at home a little easier for your kids.
4. Use Different Methods
Avoid monotony in your child’s school day by mixing up mediums and methods of learning. Instead of asking your kids to read from books and work on paper worksheets each day, mix up their methods of learning to make things more interesting.
In addition to reading and worksheets, you can also incorporate watching videos, playing educational games, and listening to audiobooks into your school routine to mix things up.
5. Add in Games
With tons of educational games to choose from (both digital and board games), there are so many fun ways to add some fun into your learning routine.
You can incorporate educational online games to reinforce concepts they’re learning or turn their assignments into games to make learning a little more fun.
Whether you create a memory game out of multiplication tables or make a matching game to help your preschooler learn their colors, adding games into the mix is a sure way to make learning more fun.
