Get in Gear for Learning

August 7, 2008 · Filed Under Parents' Corner · Comment 

School’s right around the corner for most of us, and it’s time to switch on those mental gears and get the kids back into the swing of learning.  You can help everyone, from the youngest to the oldest, get back into school mode by challenging the brains a bit during these last few weeks of summer break.  Here are some fun ideas that won’t seem like school, but will get the brains fired up.

Play Family Games

Nearly any game from your game closet will help kids learn something important for school success. Whether they get to practice math facts with dice, learn about modular math with game boards that go in circles, count play money, or plan strategy, it’s all working toward the goal of getting ready to hit the books.

Plan a Shopping Trip

Use catalogs or the newspaper sale flyers and send your group on an imaginary shopping spree.  You can have them shop for anything they want: cars, groceries, toys, whatever.  Give them each a set amount of pretend spending money and have them find advertisements for things they’d like to buy.

Want Ad Stories

Nearly every newspaper has a personals or a lost and found section in the want ads.  Choose an ad and have your young writer make up the story to go with it.  What happened to cause this ad to be placed?  What happened after the ad was in the paper?  How did it all turn out? 

Try Some Science

You don’t need a school to tell you to do science projects.  How about setting up a family-wide science fair?  The internet is loaded with experiment ideas if you need them, and every student will benefit from the logical thinking, writing and presentation practice. 

These are just a few ways to get the mental muscles back in shape for the coming school year.  Give it a try!  You will find that your kids will be more willing and efficient students if they get some of the rust out of the brain in August.
