Yesterday in the mail my son received his first Highlights magazine. My in-laws got him a subscription for Christmas and I am so excited. I think I was more excited than he was. I remember growing up and reading the magazine. I loved the stories and the fun activities in it.
The magazine now is just as fun but I think it is better! With his very first magazine he got the magazine, of course, but he also got a hidden pictures book and a calendar! He opened the hidden pictures book right away and started searching for those pictures. He even paused his video game just to do some of the puzzles, now that is amazing!
I was really shocked that he wasn't getting frustrated when he couldn't find some of the pictures, but he just asked me for help and we did it together. I think this will be a great tool in our teaching arsenal. I believe that it will help him develop patience and not freak out when he can't get something right away (he freaks out when he plays video games all the time). If you don't know what the Highlights magazine is, I highly recommend checking it out here.
Did you grow up reading the Highlights magazine? If you did, what was your favorite part of the magazine? Let me know in the comments!
My name is Robin. I am a homeschooling mom of three and I just love to find ways to make learning fun. I am so excited to share my ideas with you. I try to make my ideas as inexpensive as possible. Most of the items I use are things that are around most houses and if you have a printer and ink you are all set. Please feel free to use these ideas in your own learning adventure with your children.
