    Do you find setting educational goals for your kids hard? Well worry no more! I found a way that I can help my kids achieve their personal educational goals all while having fun!

    Setting Educational Goals

    We don’t really do New Year’s resolutions. Because we know the likelihood of actually keeping them is very low. Instead, we make attainable goals. Especially Educational goals.

    Before the kids go back to school after the holidays, we take a moment to refocus on what we want to accomplish before the end of the school year.

    Each Child is different and of course the educational goals will be different. But each child should be included. But you can apply the same outline for every kid to setting educational goals that they can achieve.

    • Set a clear and defined goal (all As, or nothing less than a B? Or maybe just to improve their reading score, or get higher math score on their next test)
    • What will you do each and every day to work towards that goal? – Daily reading, Daily study, check with Mom/Dad and show what you’ve accomplished that day or show what you need to accomplish, limiting play time until certain assignments are completed first, etc.
    • How will you gauge if the goal is met? Make sure you know how you will grade the results to see if you met the goal. Will it be their Grade results? Will it be that they can read faster than before? Etc.
    • Have weekly check-ins to ensure progress on the goal is being met. This also keeps everyone accountable.

    The boy’s school work is requiring them to use a computer at home more and more for their assignments.

    And even Miss Jade’s teachers recommend letting her access learning games online to help her improve the areas in her education where she is struggling.

    Well, you see, Miss Rose sees her siblings getting all this extra screen time, she gets a bit jealous.

    In fact, last week she asked when she get to do her homework on the computer.

    Y’all, she is THREE years old. And she wants homework so she can play on screentime.

    That really made me rethink how I’m approaching screen time with Miss Rose.

    She feels left out. And we all know it doesn’t feel good to be left out. So this gave me a great idea that will kill multiple birds with one stone.

    Our educational goal for miss Rose is to get her ready for Kindergarten.

    To achieve that, Rose will be able to use her Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet while her siblings are doing their homework so she feels included and preps for Kindergarten at the same time.

    I’m also taking advantage of extra screen time right now because we have all been really sick. While we’re curled up on the couch, Miss Rose can be practicing her ABCs and counting on her tablet, while wiping her nose with tissues.

    Miss Rose normally doesn’t like to sit still, so it’s a nice way to convince her to sit still long enough to give her body the rest it needs while she is recovering from this nasty virus.

    Miss Rose loves the Disney Buddies ABC’s and the Little Piano apps. She works on learning her ABCs and then plays some music.

    We’re also using Daniel Tiger’s Stop & Go Potty app as we prepare Miss Rose for potty training.

    Then Rose rounds out her time on the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition Tablet with the Toca Labs games that let her be creative. She also enjoys any game that lets her color pictures or put together digital puzzles that help her learn shapes.

    The great thing about the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablet is that it offers hundreds of educational apps that will help her prepare for Kindergarten. We’ve been working on her colors, numbers, alphabets, and writing her name.

    Each Fire Kids Edition tablet comes with a year subscription to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited that gives access to over 20,000 books, videos, Audible books, educational apps, and games that are age-appropriate.

    While we are adjusting how we use screentime in our home to meet an educational goal, that doesn’t mean we turn our kids loose on screens. That is why I absolutely love the Amazon FreeTime parental controls.

    I can set time daily limits to restrict how long they can play on the tablet. I can even make goals that they have to complete 20 minutes of reading before the games unlock!

    That makes my job so much easier, because I can leave Miss Jade to read her books while I help Miss Rose, and not worry she is getting into games before her reading time is complete.

    And I can even set weekday limits separately from weekend limits. This is nice since we allow kids more FUN screen time on the weekends vs school nights.

    And I can even set off times, so that they can’t access anything during specific hours of the day (like after bedtime when they are supposed to be sleeping).

    See the other ways we use the Fire Kids Edition Tablet to create cherished memories together.
