“Where can I find academic school enrichment stuff online?”

From the mailbag:

"Dear MamaBear,

My city's school sucks at teaching.  I want to give more work to my kids, where should I go?


Pissed Off Parent"

Dear PoP,

Oh, how your question brings back sooo many memories! 

'Matter of fact, right now MamaBear is being flattened by her neurons firing on overdrive as she remembers all of the weighty sleuthing she did in her never-ending question to Teach Her Kids More!

Here are some of my favs:




Critical Thinking:

Lateral Thinking:

These should be enough to start you off!

Remember, the key with academic enrichment at home is to verify your kids actually *get* the concepts. 

If they are clueless, it doesn't matter how much "stuff" you dump on them, it will roll off their brains like 16 ton anvils fall from the sky.

Thus, always be open to confusion from your kids and be ready and able to turn on a dime and offer other learning methods whenever required.  Your kids will thank you for it.

Thus speaks MamaBear
