Most teachers want to incorporate fun into the school day. Some, however, simply don't know where to begin. They have the right attitude, but don't know how to deliver. Students who have fun during class end up learning more because there minds are actively engaged. For teachers with a hard time incorporating fun, here are 5 secrets to making learning fun. Involve Everyone : Some students fall through the cracks because they never speak in class, are never called on, and don't complete their homework. They feel no ownership nor pride for school. This can be easily corrected by simply involving each and every student in class. It is more fun being involved in class than sitting back like a bump on a log. Call on students that don't have their hands raised. Go around the room and have each person read a paragraph out loud from the study material. If students feel invested in schoolwork, they will be more likely to have fun and succeed.
Who can help me reach this goal? This is a very important question, and your answer is also very important. An unachieved goal usually means we lack the self discipline to get there alone. So we need to lean on the discipline and accountability of another person. In some cases they might be partners who are moving toward a similar goal; in other cases they are mentors who are leading us and coaching us to go where they have already gone. Either way, this person is often the difference between success and failure in goal setting. What are all the steps I need to take to reach this goal? I like to simply write these things out as they come to mind, with no real regard for order or priority. Just get every logical step down so you can see exactly what is required. This is another reality check stage, but it can also be quite encouraging since your large goal has been reduced to bite-sized chunks!
Always be on the look out for tears of frustration, so as to all the child some break. No one learns well enough when confused. At this point both concentration and effective learning are lost. But if you are sure that the tears are merely excuses to skip the homework, pretend to abandon him with the worksheets and let him sweat it out! Reading is much more than fluency and word recognition. Reading fluently isn't enough. Students must fully understand the content they are reading. By learning and applying several different reading strategies, students will be able to obtain meaning from a wide variety of texts.
Working in Groups : Group projects are tons of fun for students. It allows them to talk and discuss their answers with peers. If there is a worksheet assignment, for example, let the students work in groups of 3 or 4. Not only will they enjoy the change of pace, but they will also learn from each other. Group learning kills two birds with one stone. School Day Variety : No school day is fun if the routine is the same day in and day out. Change the schedule and add variety to your class. Students love to try new things. Have them complete worksheets one day, and the next day have an outdoor study session. Videos also make for wonderful variety. They allow students to take a break from the traditional school day. There is nothing like a little fun to get a child to learn. Incorporating fun into the school day not only makes you a great teacher, but also encourages knowledge comprehension.
