Fun Techniques To Help Children Learn And Enjoy At The Same Time

By Katie Wilson

One of the most rewarding jobs out there is to teach. There is nothing like watching your kids learn new things and expand their horizons, and being part of that process is very meaningful. One thing that makes a teacher great is how they come up with creative ways to instruct without being heavy handed and boring. You can turn a dull classroom lecture into a memorable experience and your students will learn more from it.

There are a few tricks that you can use to make class more fun depending on the grade level you teach. Below are some great tips to generate some fun ways to educate that maybe you haven’t though of before.

Role playing is always successful, and you can stretch it to incorporate the material that is being discussed. Maybe having them dress up and act out the parts that they are learning about will help the lessons come alive, while allowing them to be creative and have a chance to express themselves.

Think about doing a class project that will involve a public demonstration at the end, such as a concert or art display. If you give them a real world goal to work on, they will be more inclined to learn and then to share what they came up with the rest of the school.

Try and develop things in the classroom that will keep them entertained and engaged. Maybe doing a competition or having some good games is the solution, or perhaps creating a presentation through various creative outlets will get their attention. The thing to do is to get them involved and time will go faster for both you and your students.

For business classes, how about developing a business plan that can be applied to the real world, and see how they take ownership of it as it turns into something beyond a lesson.

Consider having a day off outside the classroom, like maybe a school picnic or some kind of activity outside or in the gym or auditorium. Let them have a good time, and perhaps you can incorporate some of your lesson goals in this activity too.

Maybe the thing to do is have a theme party when you take what you’ve been teaching in class and turn it into a fun day for the kids. Let them dress up as characters, bring food that relates to the theme, and let them be part of the process of planning. Everyone will benefit from creative lessons like these.
