Winter a Good Time for Learning

North Dakota winter weather and extended time indoors brings opportunities for learning like no other time of year.

Winter birdhouseToddlers and preschoolers enjoy imitation and physical movement. Set up a simple obstacle course! Go through it yourself then invite your children to join you.

Join your elementary-age kids outdoors whenever possible. If it’s too cold, it’s yoga time.

Middle-school students enjoy having a look at your life at their age. Take out the old photo albums and compare styles.  

Talk to your high-school age kids about what you are reading and what they are reading. Swap books and compare your perspectives.
