Four Steps to Making Learning Fun

I also wanted to share some thoughts about how you can make learning fun.  The expression that it’s all in the presentation is the secret.  

  1. Create a catchy and attractive name for a new lesson.  You could introduce a new lesson and call it, for example, “Script” or “Cursive.”  But as one of my students said, script sounds like strict and cursive sounds like cursed.  Why not call this lesson, “Roller Coaster Letters.”  All my students can’t wait to join letters into words so they can “test out their new roller coaster!”
  2. Share your own excitement in your voice, attitude and energy level when introducing a new lesson.  If you are excited, they will be too.
  3. Students often need to be instructed multiple times before they “get the lesson.”  Make sure to teach new material to the different learning styles and go as multi-sensory as possible.
  4. Student love games, try in integrate as many game-like activities into your lessons as possible.
If you have other ideas, please let us know! 

Valentines Day is right around the corner, so I wanted to share a fun holiday activity:
