How To Get The Best Education Possible: Tip #87

It is very important for a child to be able to sit still and concentrate in order to be successful in school.  According to Stacy DeBroff, you can increase your child's concentration skills by playing games.  That brings us to tip #87.

Tip #87: Help your child to concentrate better and longer by playing simple games.

Below are some of the games suggestions by Stacy DeBroff:

1. Ask your child to recite as many colors, states, songs, animals, pop singers, or football players, as possible in 30 seconds.
2. Have your child describe what he smell when you are cooking, what he sees on the way to school, and what instruments are in songs on the radio.
3. Play the take-away at the dinner table. Everyone close their eyes except one person, who removes an object form the table. Then the others open their eyes and guess what is missing.
4. Practice listening skills by making up stories together in the car. Take turns adding one sentence at a time, and see how long you can make the story.
5. Work on classroom manners by playing school at home. Play the badly behaved student, waving your hands in the air to be called on and shouting out answers, as a way to comically get the point across.
