How To Add Fun To Your Home School Day.....

Posted by   + Show Post

Have you ever wondered how to vamp up your day with some fun learning?

Well, here is a way to do just that. 

Have a large, cookie type, jar.  A piece of paper or a piece of construction paper. A pen or marker. head full of Ideas.  

1. Write some quiz questions on a slip of paper. Make the questions about anything and everything. For Example: What is  4, in Roman Numerals? Have the Answer upside down underneath the question. OR  What is the capitol of    " ? ".  

2. Put them in the jar until the jar is filled up. 

3. Set the jar wherever it brings the most attention. 

For however many questions they get right, they get a surprise, or a treat, or a choice of a place to go, or a special field trip, or watch a special show, etc etc etc.  Whatever type of reward you'd like the reward to be. Or what the kids would like the rewards to be. Within reason of course. :)  You could even put a hole on the side through each question and take them with you on the run to do errands or go to the grocery store or on those lengthy vacations even.  You could even laminate them, if so desired. You could even use this as an in between break from those times when things just need that shake up to get the brain juices flowing again. 

So, moms, what type of questions would you put in the jar???

That would be a great way to reinforce math concepts! How would you word it?  :)  Would you do word problems?
