We have a tic-tac-toe game board we made up. Each player gets one. Then we put works on little slips of paper into a paper bag. Each of us takes turn picking out the word and saying it. It goes on a square when we are done. You can make it as challenging or easy as you want. My 6-year old loves this game and it really helps with his reading skills.

I've got two GRANDsons who live about 9 hours away. Everytime I go to see them, I try a use my time with them on *fun learning* time. Last week, it was the *change game*. I brought along a bag of change - first put out 1 of each denomination so that Trey (7 yrs) could identify what it was, then how much it represented. Then I mixed things up by having him tell me how much each *fistful* was worth. We did this once a day, and by the time I left, both his confidence and counting ability were soaring! I figure I'm helping to finance his college education... hahahaha!
I'd sure love to hear how other parents/grandparents make learning fun for my next trip (October 16th...) Thanks!
