Help your child make learning fun by role playing or acting. Choose a concept or theme such as a historical event, a favorite person or a favorite subject (such as math). Have your child act out the concept and share it with you. For example, he or she could be a teacher giving you a silly lesson, or he might pretend to demonstrate a math concept by being a chef and doubling the recipe ingredients. Make props from items and clothing found around the house and invite other members of the family to join in or watch the theatrics.

HAVE YOU ever had a child implore, "Can I stay up tonight and read my textbook?"Read a textbook? Eagerly? Teachers know better. So do kids.This isn't funny. We have a reading, thinking and learning problem in our schools and we give children books that are so dumbed-down that most people laugh at the idea of anyone actually wanting to read them.Meanwhile, around the country, both sides of the ideological textbook debate -- the multicultural left and the Christian right -- shout invective at each other.
