Finding Fun and Unique Ways to Teach Your Children

When we think of educating our children, we often think of our children sitting at desks or the kitchen table using textbooks and workbooks. While this kind of teaching/learning is enjoyable to some students, most students (and parents!) enjoy breaking out of the more traditional classroom setting in exchange for ideas and activities that are more fun! It is possible to incorporate alternative kinds of teaching and learning into your homeschool, and it doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive! There are ways to use hands-on activities, dance, poetry, drama, experiments, fun literature-related activities, music, travel, and more to spice up your homeschool! If you’re in a homeschool rut or if you’re just not sure how to add a little fun and adventure to your homeschool, we would love to share some ideas and information with you! Your children will thank you (Ok…it may be years from now! But they will!) and your family may discover a new love for learning this school year!

Creating Joyful Learner through the Power of Play

Register for our session on “Creating Joyful Learner through the Power of Play” to see and learn strategies that make the learning experience fun, while improving retention and recall in the minds of our students.
Play is an important part of children’s learning and development. Active learning strategies make learning fun, while increasing engagement and student performance.
In a recent study, researchers found that cognitive word games can improve lexical memory access and decision-making processes.
Recent studies have found that cognitive games are a good strategy for effectively improving students’ performance by keeping them engaged (Annetta, Minogue, Holmes, & Cheng, 2009; Kim, Park, & Baek, 2009). When students build a strong academic vocabulary early in life, their chances for success will be significantly higher later in life.
Gamification is a new concept that promotes the use of games to enhance student engagement, memory, and improve the learning experience (Annetta,2010)
