Ideally kids should learn just as much at home as they do in school. If you want to help your kids on their educational journey, there are a variety of ways to help our kids learn at home. To discover a few ideas that you may want to implement at home, simply continue reading.
Use DuoLingo to teach your kids a new language:
If you’d love for your kids to learn a second language in order to increase the opportunities that they will have in the future, it’s a great idea to use DuoLingo which is available as an App and has a web based version, to teach your kids the basics of a new language. Such as Spanish, French or German. As most kids love interactive platforms and Duolingo’s lessons are set out in a fun game centric format.
Encourage your kids to write their own stories:
While you may already be in the routine of reading your kids bed time stories. it’s also a great idea to encourage your kids to write and illustrate their own stories. Even young elementary school aged children are able to write short stories that feature one sentence per page. While older children may enjoy writing full novels.
Buy your children their own personal journals
If your children aren’t interested in writing their own stories or have difficulty choosing topics to write about, they may find it easier to write about their lives, by keeping their own personal journals. Just be sure to respect your kids privacy and to avoid reading their personal journals as journals are meant to give your kids a safe space to write their feelings.
Use physical activities to teach your kids:
For example, you may want to ask your kids to help you bake cookies in order to teach them about math. For example how to alter the volume of ingredients that are needed when you increase or decrease the number of servings that a recipe will make. Sometimes kids learn best, when they don’t realize that they’re being taught a lesson.
Make sure that your kids have a quiet study nook:
Most kids have an easier time learning and concentrating in quiet environments. So it’s a great idea to make sure that each of your kids has a quiet, study nook to learn in and to complete their homework in.
Don’t instill a fear of grades into your children:
What is important is not your kids grades but the effort that they put into their learning. If your kids put the work in to achieve a high grade but miss the mark don’t punish them as doing so will only make them hate learning and studying.
As education should be a part of every family’s home life, it’s a great idea to use all of the educational tips that are presented above, in order to help your kids learn at home. All of which are suitable for kids of all ages.
