Make Homework Fun!
- Practice math or vocabulary skills by making a game of memory. Use index cards to play memory. The object is to match the word to the definition or the math problem to the answer.
- Use post-it notes to add math facts or vocabulary facts to a game board of Monopoly, Sorry, or Chutes & Ladders.
Play internet games. There are some great sites for all subjects:
Make it up or revise popular songs to remember facts.
Let children practice writing math facts or spelling words with bath
crayons, markers, shaving cream, whip cream, play-dough, yarn, pipe
cleaners, side walk chalk, small pieces of candy, and cereals.
