Amy talked on some tips on homeschooling energetic children. So today I’m going to talk mainly about teaching preschoolers. Energetic preschoolers to be exact!
My first suggestion for teaching any preschooler is this “LET THEM PLAY!”. They are not meant to sit down and learn how to perfect their handwriting, multiplication, or even master world history yet. They learn the best through play. It sticks in their heads that way and it’s fun for them. It helps them develop a true love of learning. For me as a homeschooler that is my main goal. I want them to LOVE to learn!
Now for those that cannot sit still for learning though crafts you have other options. What has worked best for me is a simple indoor trampoline.
I used this trampoline which you can usually find for under $50 on Amazon. It has been a real life saver for me!
This is how I use it. He can jump on the trampoline while we go over our ABC’s and 123’s. When we are working on crafts or fine motor skills he gets very fidgety. So he is allowed a break half through and he can just jump away! He’s a bit older now, but we still use this. He is in the habbit of counting on it now and he asks to do addition problems on it now a days! It’s so funny how something so simple can educate, inspire, motivate, and get the wiggles out all at the same time!
So if you kiddo is anything like mine is then you might want to give this a shot. It’s fun and you can even use it for your own personal workouts as well. Win Win! 🙂
