You’ve worked hard since the start of the school year to get your child back into a schedule and routine. It’s great that they’re back in school but you may be wondering how you can extend their learning, even when they are at home. It’s important for kids to have a balance of physical and educational activities to round out their child development. Here are some ways you can incorporate some fun learning activities into their routines at home.
Depending on your child’s age range, there are many games centered on education. From math to spelling and reading comprehension. You could even narrow it down by focusing on areas that your child’s teacher feels are challenging for your child. They’ll be able to work on those skills at home and feel more confident when they enter the classroom.
Sometimes, it’s hard to pull kids away from the television. However, in many cases, television can serve as a learning tool, especially with educational programming. Some shows even encourage young children to get up and move with their favorite characters. There are others that even introduce children to other world cultures.
It’s important that children learn how to operate technology, especially as it continues to advance every day. Build a simple website together and teach your children safe internet habits. Your child could use their website to share their achievements with the family and it also encourages them to get excited about coding and technology.
Expand your child’s horizon with art-centered activities. It’s an important aspect of child development that they can express their creative sides as well. Copying a piece of art that they see helps establish and nurture their listening skills and ability to follow directions. They’ll also become more well-rounded people by learning about different genres of music or playing an instrument themselves.
Science at Home
Science experiments are a fun and engaging educational activity you can do with your kids at home. Go for the classic volcano, build a rocket, or learn about magnetism. Science experiments are the perfect combination of exercising their minds and bodies as they’ll help you build the experiment and learn all about the concepts at hand.
