A Learning Method I Taught My Children When They Were Younger. Maybe It Will Help Your Children

Updated on December 9, 2014

What Method Did I Use?

We all know that learning new things can be frustrating and embarrassing. Especially, if you don't understand it or don't have a solution for it. Everyone usually goes through this type of overload but as parent, I knew it was my duty to see the common struggles or embattles, and boredom that my children had been facing become nil and void. It took several of heartaches and tears for me as their mother to think long and hard on what systems or programs to implement into their lives. Until it hit me one morning out of the blew after dreaming about my strategies and how to use it. I decided to use something that you might think is unbelievablely crazy to do, but I knew to well and it was playing traditional games and I started to find ways to combined these street games into learning every subject they had in their school.

Here's some of the combinations of traditional games and subjects that I went with and we used often. Maybe you can find some of these games useful for your children to learn and beat-off the heartache of school work. In my opinion, this learning method that I came up with did actually help my children become better thinkers and problem solvers.

  • Rock Teacher & Marbles- by using these games as vehicle to help my kids with science and muscle memory.
  • Seven-up & Pitching pennies- as a math tool to motivate them to learn the proper way to use numbers and money.
  • Follow the leader & hopscotch- was used as a reading and writing lessons.
  • Capture the flag & Kick-the-can-we played these games to help them with history and english subjects.
  • Musical chairs & Hot-potato- was used for music lessons to see, if they had the proper skills to distinguish the notes and rimes that had been playing on the radio.
  • String fingers & Tic-tac-toe- we played these games to utilized their artwork.
  • Bingo & Card games- for awhile it was a tough match but we used this game for spelling and defining old and new words. It's a great strategy you should try it.
  • They're several other games that I did not mentioned up above. But we did used all the traditional games as huge method to utilized their brain power. I truly think that learning should be a burning desire not a short flame.
