Be the Teacher
While kids might not always like going to school, they usually like to play school at home. Not only is this a fun way to spend an afternoon, but it's a good way to reinforce what your kids have been learning in the classroom. You can also use this time to practice good manners. If you're the teacher, be sure to say Please and Thank You when asking your pupil to complete a task. Then switch roles, and let your little one be the one giving you the assignments (politely!).
