If you have kids that shudder at doing worksheets or problems from a textbook or you just want to give them a change, put down the pencil and paper and:
- Do boardwork
- To help keep easily distracted kids’ attention, do one problem at a time with student. Talk about the answer. Kids seem to love writing with chalk and whiteboard markers.
- Do oral work
- I have found that my two older boys (who are not textbook types) like to do the work orally with me so when I sense battles brewing, I do the work orally with them.
