Television, video games, online games and cell phones are all very appealing to third through fifth grade students. Although, some educational games can help build math or language and reading skills, many kids are getting too much screen time. Elementary kids should have no more than 2 hours of screen time per day. What can you do to limit screen time? Make other fun activities available. If it is nice out go to the park or throw a ball around. Inside, kids can read books, create a project, play a board game or help out with dinner. Elementary kids love to teach younger siblings or friends to recognize letters and colors or tie their shoes. Just make sure that the older student knows that you appreciate the help.
