Re: kinetic learner

Mabey you could come up with a kind of home school/dance party/learn time...thing. Play some fun music and dance around with flash cards, having a great time! Sometimes when I see that look of boredom in my little boys eyes, because they are bored with what they where just doing, and now cant quite figure out what to do next...and are deciding to start fighting, just to kill time. I "trick-redirect" them by enthusiastically stating its "happy party circle time!" Where they run around in a circle (wearing themselves out) I call out spelling trivia for them to answer, or have them skip, hop, etc. Its a great entertainment filler in the day for me, for them. And they remember quite a bit of numbers, letters, and spelling from it!
