Tools For Teaching Our Children

We are all sold on the idea of teaching our children correct principles, but we don't always know how to go about teaching them, without boring them to death.

Yesterday I met a man named Bryan Knysh who owns  He wanted his kids to learn, but found their schoolwork boring and uninspiring.  He decided to stay a few steps ahead of what his kids were learning in school and make his own curriculum for them.  Now that's a dedicated dad! is one of the results. (Happy and learned kids is another, I'm sure.)

"The Kidport learning system applies visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning styles to help students better learn and understand."  The site is mostly about delivering high quality content efficiently.  There are learning modules, interactive workbooks, reference libraries, and projects with real world application.  Subjects include Math, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, and Creative Arts.  The materials cater to grades K-8.

There is a whole section on the American Revolution.

I was inspired by this fathers dedication to his kids and the quality content on his site, so I wanted to share.  Maybe you can find some content to share or projects to do with your kids!
