Accelerated Learning – The Bug Box

Posted on Posted in Education and learning, Kids, learning, Mum's, Success strategies

Accelerated learning is how you educated your child in a fun and entertaining way that will help your child accelerate through his /her school years. There are many techniques you can learn from any of the hundreds of books available, or just use your own surroundings and a little right brain creativity to enthrall and educate your angels. It is easy to give your kids an extraordinary headstart in life.

Our bug box is a collection of dead bugs we have found in our garden containing bees, cicadas, spiders, grasshoppers, beetles and even a centipede. We also have funky seed pods and a snakes skin left behind by our resident carpet python (harmless in case you’re freaking out) . All you need to do is keep the dead bugs you would normally sweep out or jump away from. Keep them in a box so you can revisit them and dissect and examine them. Count their legs, their body parts and learn some facts about these creatures whilst handling them. Your kids learn not to be afraid of these dead fellows and to respect the live ones when we cross their path. They get a total sensory experience by handling them, looking at their body parts. It’s is an awesome learning experience and one we can all do as we all have bugs & beetles.
