For the kids who are getting a little behind in school simply because they don’t have a good grasp of the basic concepts, worksheets are a great choice. If you talk to your child about obtaining a tutor because it will make it easier for him to learn and less stressful on you as a parent, he might cringe. Tutoring seems like an extension of school, which most kids will not care for. In place of tutoring, you can offer your child the opportunity to complete fun worksheets for kids at home to see if the skills improve. If you print out sheets for your child to work on at home, you can make a game out of it. Rather than giving him the worksheet and sending him off to a quiet room to work on it by himself, you can engage with him, helping him complete it. Print out two sets of the work and have a race with him. When you let him win, you will build up his self-confidence, boosting his ability to learn the subjects with which he struggles.
About a year ago we went away on a family holiday to Wales. We were in the car for around 7 hours. That’s right, 7 hours with bored kids and frustrated parents. Usually, when we are going to be in one place for a long time, I take some things for the kids to do but as you can imagine they had exhausted everything I had brought along within the first 4 hours. It was at this time, in desperation, that I decided to take action. So, I started creating little games. You know those kind of I spy games. But I took it further and started to write quizzes. But ones that were relevant to being on a journey. For example, I would tell everyone to look out for a speed sign and as soon as we all heard the speed on the speed sign we would write down all the ways we could think of to make that number. It seems so simple but games like this kept us busy for hours. And the kids loved it. In fact, even I found it fun.
