Also, utilizing videos to teach concepts has been a great tool. Try checking out The KidsKnowIt Network which has great videos that range from math skills and science to creative writing. I have the kids watch the movie, take the interactive quiz and then have worksheets designed around the theme. I also have made a playlist on Youtube with various videos that are educational and fun. We are currently discussing the virtues Diligence and Perseverance. I searched for the story of the Little Engine That Could and we watched the short video and discussed it.
So remember, making learning fun doesn't just benefit the kids by peaking their interest. It is also good for you as a parent because when the kids are having fun learning, you are spending less time struggling to get a lesson across.
I'll try to share more, but of course it's that chaotic Christmas season, so we'll see how it all goes! Good luck!
