Lil Tip: Learning While They Ride

There's something better than a headrest television to keep youngsters busy in the car. For moms on the go, looking to motivate their lil learners, Family Fun magazine features one mama's inventive idea in its March issue.

Before you slip into the driver's seat to man the wheel as you shuttle the kids to and from extracurricular activities, tape lessons on the back of the headrest so your children can memorize things, from their spelling words to addresses and telephone numbers while you roll.

I like Lickety Split's idea better than "memorizing" random facts. Why can't you have a conversation with your children when you are driving?

we have a tradition that the youngest reader (emerging reader) reads out loud on the way to school each morning, their choice of books. i read that reading out loud helps with comprehension and it seems to be true with my girls.

I saw this in the mag and thought it was a good idea. They used different coins with their values printed next to them. Greggy, my hubby is like that. Doesn't seem to bother me or the kids. My son needs to practice his spelling so this may help if he is staring at them on our car trips. I also use post-its on his walls with important words and our address. I 'think' it has helped :)

Unfortunately that's just begging for vomit in my backseat. There's not a single member of this family that doesn't get sick when they read in a moving car.
