Playing with our children is SO MONUMENTALLY IMPORTANT!!! Parents need to play more games WITH their children. I am not talking about signing them up for another season of soccer or t-ball. I mean just simply playing with them. Games are a great motivator on different levels for children and may be one of the most often overlooked teaching skills. They are invaluable.
I am sure you enjoyed Terri Brady’s thoughts on why she home schools her children as much as I did. I hope you made your two lists that I mentioned in that post. If you don’t know what I am talking about, or you missed that first part of Terri Brady’s podcast, then click on this link and check it out.
In this second part of her story, Terri shares with us some of the ways that she incorporated games in her home school practices and gives some great ideas for homeschool games and lessons.
