Since I started homeschooling Henry, I have taken on a new appreciation of teaching and learning. When he was in public school, I did not think much about what it took to teach the kids quality lessons every day. It is a lot of work and I found if I want to get him to be enthusiastic about what I am teaching, I need to make it interesting. I try to get him out of the house as often as I can so we can take our teaching on the road. We have been to some really interesting places like aquariums, science and art museums, and our local nature center. It is so much fun to see him take it all in and really enjoy himself.
When the weather turns, we are a bit more limited to where we can go when we homeschool. I have found by integrating fun educational toys into our lessons, he gets excited about learning. And to be honest, it pumps a little more excitement into me as well. If I can find hands on type toys, games, books and other materials, he is more likely to retain what we learn. One of his favorite new lessons has been about the deep sea, the planets and the human body. Because I have a nursing degree, he seems to be more interested in anatomy than he was before I graduated from nursing school.
One of our latest additions to our curriculum are two books and interactive charts from Popar Toys. These products literally bring your learning to life in a cool interactive 3D connection between their materials and your mobile device. All you need to do is download the free app, open the book, puzzle or chart, point and the page comes to live. It takes the kdis learning to an entirely new level.
I first learned of Popar Toys when we received a few of their 3D interactive puzzles for the kids a few years ago. I wrote about them in my post, “Cool Interactive Puzzles For Kids.” These award winning games, toys and charts about bugs, deep sea life, the planets, basketball, football or even a princess castle.
The graphics are just stunning and the colors just come right off the pages. It has renewed an interest in Henry I have not seen in quite a while. Whether you homeschool or want the kids to broaden their knowledge, these are just great. With prices ranging from $13 to $20 and free shipping through the end of the month, you can afford to put a few under the tree for Christmas!
