When you are able to blend a lesson with playful games:

  • Kids often stay engaged for longer
  • Show better comprehension
  • Just all around have more fun!

Here are some quick and easy ideas for incorporating learning through play:

Bring books to life with pop-up books

MEMORY MATCHING GAMES AND BOARD GAMES

Pair worksheets with a matching game or favorite board game — the student gets to take a turn in the game after each problem completed

Create a memory game to help with other concepts of learning through play, such as:

  • pairing words with their parts of speech
  • equations with answers
  • science words with definitions
  • history dates with events


USBORNE BUSY BOOKS

These unique, interactive books are a fun way to keep your reader engaged! Each book includes a vehicle (or 2) that will go around the tracks that match the story! 

Your children will find these books exciting and fun! 

Engaging books are so essential in instilling the love of reading in your child.

OUTDOOR AND MOTION PLAY

Pair learning with a scavenger hunt — have students find objects in the house that begin with letters they are learning, or get more complex by having them solve a math equation and then find objects that have that number (e.g. What is 15 divided by 3? 5! Upon searching, the student finds that the clock has the number 5 on it; the light has 5 bulbs, the alarm clock has 5 buttons, etc.)

Create an obstacle course with a math problem that needs to be solved at each station before moving on to the next obstacle (this can also be done as a scavenger hunt)

Pair worksheets with motion (for example, make up a dance move for each number 1-10, then have them dance the sequence of moves in an equation)

Practice fine motor skills by using household objects to work on counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and fractions

Do you love paper planes or origami?

Also a great way to build on fine motor skills.
