It’s almost that time of year again-Halloween! Even with all the issues we are going through as a family, one of Michael’s favorite holidays is Halloween. He loves the whole premise of the costumes, trick or treating, as well as decorating for the holiday. Don’t all kids! As he gets older, I try to use holidays as teaching opportunities to work on things like reading, math or other subjects. There are so many good sites out there where parents can find interesting educational tools to practice teaching concepts in a fun way with their children. One of my favorite sites is https://www.education.com/resources/ela/reading/. They have lots of puzzles, word searches and other holiday themed sheets where kids can have fun and learn at the same time.

Worksheets like this are also wonderful for teachers who can use them in the classroom to make learning fun as kids will be practicing grammar around a favorite holiday:
As a Mom, I love sharing new tools and sites to help exceptional families. I hope that you find these tools helpful and fun when learning and spending quality time as a family. I also hope it helps engage your child’s learning and imagination to the fullest.
Exceptional Parents, how do you make learning fun for your Exceptional Child? Remember, no matter what tools you use, follow their pace, level of interest and engagement. You will always be successful if you go that route. Until next time.
