Do you think that it is important for learning to be fun or do you think some parts of education just aren't fun?

I guess everything may not be fun at my daughter's age, I'll at least try to make it not boring.

I am trying to do more songs and games because my kids like them. I am going to try to really start thinking of some fun ideas and when I do I will try to post them.

Patty, that's how I taught my kids their phone numbers and addresses when they were little, we sang it. My oldest was even singing it a couple of weeks ago when she was reminiscing about our old neighborhood with a friend.


Did you even watch "Cheers"? The episode I'm thinking of is when Coach and Sam took a night course in geography. Coach used to sing songs to remember the geography lessons, I think one was about Estonia being on the Adriatic. It made me remember it.

I am always trying to make learning fun. I think it is important especially for younger kids that lessons have lots of variety so it doesn't get stale and keeps the interest up but also to cover different learning styles. But then I am a right brained, hands on person myself and I would be bored to tears by the same ol workbooks every day.
I must admit I cringe when someone says they have this entire boxed set of workbooks for there K level kid. I am sure as kids get older there will be some things that aren’t fun, but then I would be thinking if this isn't fun what can we do next that is?
