Engaging Minds

Something I picked up at a Homeschool site. I think it’s sound advice.

Engage Their Minds, And They Will Learn

Get the children involved. Do a unit study that they get to choose an example is one child may pick Jaguars to study, another Flowers. Take them to the library and pick out the books they want to read on the subject. Let them pick out a paragraph they liked in a book and use it for copywork, grammar lesson, dictation and spelling/vocabulary list. Make math word problems out of the subject too. Let the kids use their imaginations and let them help plan with you. Make it easier on yourself and let them have fun learning in the process.
