Playing teacher is so fun...with one kiddo...and a quiet house.
I'm convinced teachers have super powers, there is just no other explanation. Well, it’s only been day 1, but we are having a blast! Here is a fun idea that helps with math and writing.
Set-up a little pop-up shop, a school store of sorts. Find items around the house that your kiddo will want to buy.
Perhaps even reach into your Dollar Store/Target/Walmart stash in the back of the closet...I know you have a stockpile of pencils, glow sticks, stickers back there, Monica...
Here are some ideas:
Fruit snacks (this helps incorporate cents. We charge $.50/bag)
Supplies...colorful paper, writing board, protractor
The options are endless!
Next, your little student goes shopping!
Make sure they write down and add what they bought. Stick to a budget!!
It’s never too early to learn home economics.
I start with a $15 budget. Whatever they have left rolls over to tomorrow if they return to the store.
(and we always return to the store, am I right, ladies?) My little one was super proud that she still had money left for the rest of the week.
Learning only works if it’s FUN!!!
What are some fun at-home ideas you have to keep your kiddos engaged in learning??
