So, "how do you make learning fun," you might ask. Well, in today's 21st century learning world, many educators will call on games, videos, songs, and humor.
I have used the DVD and book to this first video. The video is not sung by the original artist. However, it is sung very much like the original and it has the words on the screen. "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" is an alphabet book and song by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault. It is illustrated by Lois Ehlert.
My students used to enjoy listening to the story and hearing the song. They would even chime in. We would get up and kind of dance along as we sang. It has a catchy tune. So, it made learning fun! (It is things like this that made teaching kindergarten really fun. Well, most of all, I enjoyed the awe and wonderment of the children.)
I learned Bloom's Taxonomy in college when I got my degree in education. It categorizes the different levels of thinking and learning.
*I am trying a new idea in hopes to get more interaction. Please check out the educational discussions page. I hope to have various discussions on educational topics. (I would love to know what you think of this new feature on DUO Education.)
*I have made some changes on the site. Please take a moment to explore it. Also, I would love to hear what you think of the site and the changes. I welcome any ideas, suggestions, and questions as well.
*My books, "Clarinda Cloud" and "Johnny's Adventure Makes Reading Fun" will be free on Kindle today and tomorrow. I hope you will take advantage of this and pick up your copy. Both books have some great reviews already. If you enjoy the books, please consider leaving one as well. Thank you.
