Let’s teach the kids by making learning fun and not a burden or boring and for this, unbox the creativity side of you and use your skills to make some craft that will help your kid to learn better. This lockdown is preventing your kids to go to school. Some schools are performing online classes and doing their best on their behalf to teach the kids.
As a parent, it is our duty to make the learning of our kids fun and alive. Therefore, today in this article we will provide you with the ways on how you can teach your kid by making it fun at the same time.
How to Teach with Craft Activities
Make Learning Alphabets Fun And Easier
Start teaching the kids with alphabets. Make some artistic object as shown above and then write each alphabet on each object. Now, sit with your kid and help them learn A-Z because children imitate us. If you will learn, your kid will learn. Happy learning 🙂
Teach Them Numbers
After English, when they are ready to move to the next subject, say maths, teach them numbers. Create some flower vase in serial numbers of flowers in the vase and number them according to the number of flowers drawn. Then, teach them by learning with them because this is more fun.
Make Them Familiar With The Name Of Fruits
For teaching them the name of fruits, draw or print out some fruits images and stick them to chart paper. After that, tell them to spell out the letters of each fruit and then pronounce them. Meantime, make sure you accompany them because kids love when they get a mate in learning activities.
Learn Different Colours With Them
For this make a certain object as shown above and make multiple copies of that object but each of different colour. Write the name of the respective colour on each craft. After you are done, teach them the name of the colours. This is more fun than making them mug up the answer as it is more understandable.
Learn Days Of The Week With Your Kid
Draw or print out a singular crafty image and make multiple copies of that image with different colours and then write all the days of the week on the image. After that, tell them to learn the days of the week by pointing each. This way, you will get to know whether they are fully familiar with the concept you are trying to teach them or not.
Make Learning Months Of Year More Fun
By making the crafty images and mentioning the months of the year as shown in the above image you are not only making the learning fun for them but you are also giving them an experience of what it is to learn outside the four walls of the classroom and teaching them that learning can be fun and that they don’t need to note everything in their notebook and memorize it like they are robots.
Teach Them How To Write Numbers Alphabetically
After you are done teaching them numbers, teach them how to write the numbers in English alphabet. And for that use the same methods as was mentioned before for learning numbers but this time since you are teaching them to write alphabetically, write the numbers in both numerically and in English alphabet
Time To See How Much Your Kid Has Learned
Well, after teaching with all the craftiness, now is the time to see how much have the kid learn. You can make the test more fun too by creating crafts in the same manner but making sure not to write on it and leave that space for your kid to write
So these are some of the ways on how you can teach your kid by not making it boring. By doing this you are lending a helping hand to the schools who are teaching online. Secondly, you infuse your kid with knowledge and ample of crafty ideas. Finally, you get an opportunity to make up for all the lost time when you spend in the office, work and were not able to be there for your kid.
