2. Incorporate Your Kids' Interests into Curriculum

Hands-on activities, long-term projects and group assignments are great ways to get your students actively involved in the learning process. Help your kids draw connections between the material they're studying and real-life situations. For example, if you're teaching your kids about Thomas Edison, have each student think up and create an invention. Then host an inventor's fair where the students can wow each other with their creativity.
