4 Fun School Activities for Elementary Kids

How many times have you seen a little boy crying hysterically and refusing to let go of his mommy’s skirt? Or a toddler lying on the floor, bawling her eyes out. These are common scenarios during the opening of classes at a preschool and even elementary schools.

It is essential for kids to equate learning and school with FUN. After all, they will be spending the next 20 years of their lives inside the halls of a school. Educators and school owners must always strive to make their school a magnet for curious eyes and a haven away from home for these little cutie pies. What better way to entice children (and parents) to enroll in your school than to have fun school activities for your students?

  1.  Show and tell.

Show and tell can be pretty exciting for the little ones. They present to the class, for example, their favorite pet. This enhances their communication skills and confidence to speak in front of the whole class. Here you will discover their vocabulary level, and you can also detect which areas you need to work on more with your kids. So every once in a while, when you are ahead of your lesson plans, you may want to inject a show and tell for them. Watch their eyes light up and their excitement bubble.

Learning should never be a burden but exciting and fun. School should be somewhere kids look forward to going. So make learning fun and your school a home.
