The Everything Bee

It is a challenge to find activities to "spice up" normal school activities when my students {aka my kiddos} are at different levels.

A few weeks ago, I saw this idea. I loved it and decided to try it out with my kids.

Guess what?? They LOVE it!

I quiz them on everything: spelling words, math facts, bible verses, geography, science, and any other facts we may have covered in school.

We spend many hours each week in the car taking Morgan to and from gymnastics. Our everything bee has become a staple car ride activity. It is a great way to pass the time in the car and get a little extra school work in each day.

Here are my little students getting ready for the everything bee:

student number one:
student number two:
student number three {yes, even the baby gets in on the action - spelling her name, knowing her birthday, address, phone number, etc...}
their most attentive audience members - the dogs who are hoping the kids might drop some of their treats!

What are some ways you "spice up" learning with your kids?

What a cute idea...kind of like Trivial pursuit. They sure are cute!

We play that in the car too...well, technically just my son and I, but maybe now I'll just have to be a bit more creative and include the girls too with some simple questions :)

Hope your little one is feeling better!
