Learning in January

In December, we tried to get to everything on our list. We tried, but we failed miserably. Our time was taken up with Christmas shopping, decorating, baking, wrapping and a slew of other Christmas-related activities.

And of course, there were the elves.

But this month we’ll be playing and learning.

The boys got games for Christmas. A lot of games. They Zingo for learning site words, Robot Turtles for beginning programmers, Memory, Go Ape for matching, Mouse Trap for building contraptions, Busy Town Mysteries for I Spying and Count Your Chickens for working together.

They also got Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots and Toss Across for developing hand-eye coordination.

On top of that, they got a couple of cool kits such as Magic School Bus: A Journey into the Human Body science kit, a science lab kit, a dinosaur dig kit and a crystal dig kit.

 

And…they got a year’s membership to the Children’s Discovery Museum and to the Wildlife Prairie Park–gifts for the whole family really.

So…this month, we’ll play games and take a field trip or two, learning all the while.

New year and new goals
Experimenting and games
Fun learning through play
