Preventing School Boredom

14 07 2012


Many parents take advantage of summer months to help students maintain skills taught during the school year and to prepare for the next academic year.

If you dread the upcoming year because your child hates social studies or history, here are a few suggestions to increase motivation. Things you can do at home either during the school year or during the summer months.

Attached is a document I created that includes ideas based on brain research. Activities which wouldn’t seem like typical school lessons. For fun summer boredom prevention.

Use the list as your guide to think of ones that would match your style, your child’s preferences, and upcoming history units.

Note: The brain based recommendations pertain to any subject area.

Great ideas to keep kids interested! The first idea reminds me of Mrs. Roopy is Loopy by Dan Gutman of the My Weird School Series. I like how your ideas engage all the senses too. Building and music are great ways to connect with history. I feel like all kids are different and connect more deeply through one sense than another. This gives the social studies unit a chance to connect with everyone.
