So, the kids would rather play games than do their homework. It's really no surprise and I can relate. I'd like to be lounging on the beach instead of mopping the kitchen floor, but that's another story.
To help the kids practice their math and language skills, you may want to try out these free wii compatible educational games. Don't have a wii? That's ok, these can be played on the computer as well. And yes I did get caught “testing” them out.
Since we're getting close to the end of the school year, you may want to go through the games and work them into your summer activity or project plans.
Now, if I could just figure out how to mop the floor by using the wii, we'd all be happy. 😉
