Tip #3 for Supporting Learning at Home
ADDitude Magazine has some great advice for parents looking to support their children's learning at home. Here is tip #3: Make learning a game.
Kids and teens are motivated to learn when they're having fun; the trick is figuring out how to incorporate games, prizes and other motivational tools into homework and instruction.
Try rewarding each completed assignment with a small snack or prize (e.g., 15 minutes of earned technology time) or incorporate games into learning. For example, young kids may earn pieces to a puzzle for each question they answer or complete. When the puzzle is completed, the child may earn a larger prize.
