Here at The Fun Factory, our goal is to make learning FUN. By studying the research on the young child’s brain, we design lessons to incorporate Best Practices. Best Practices simply means we take what science has proven to be the most effective ways to move information from short term to long term memory and design our instruction around that information. This means learning information in the fastest way possible and retaining it longer. In the pictures, you will notice the children using hands-on activities constructed for that purpose.
Recently, I came across this article from ASCD and thought it gave some very good guidelines about what children perceive as NOT FUN. If you would like to read the complete article, see the information at the end.
