How many little masterful works of art do you currently have in your home? Whether your child attends preschool or kindergarten or is home schooled, arts and crafts are a natural part of any curriculum. What do you do with these masterpieces? Most are proudly displayed on refrigerator doors. But you can take it a step further and create clever displays for your child has art work. The best part of course is that your child can help you with this special little project in your home.
Play is how children utilize this particular learning style. Play is one of the most powerful vehicles for facilitating learning. When you play with your child you are demonstrating how much you value them and enjoy their company. This helps build self-esteem and many studies now reveal that children with high emotional intelligence will outperform children with higher IQ but lower self esteem. In the UK questions are being asked regarding whether children are given enough time to simply play. The pattern seems to be that children are given more time to play during their early years in school but towards the middle years a more formal approach dominates their school day. Emeritus Professor Barbara argues that the tendency for state education to focus on a more formal, left-brain orientated approach to learning can have disastrous implications for a significant percentage of children, particularly boys, who tend to be predominantly tactile learners.
By thinking your handouts through, you will be doing your students a great favor by aiding them through the learning process. Many students do not have enough learning skills. Take them through the process of handling their work. Teach them a system of organization. This can include: How organize a folder of their handouts, What to do with finished worksheets. Perhaps you want to have a showcase of finished student worksheet. Have you considered a portfolio? Model think aloud skills. By using an example to show exactly what you want, you are acting as a facilitator for the students has abilities to process information.
So as you can see, rather it is a holiday, the change of seasons or just a typical day for a child, doing kids crafts is much more than just having fun. It is a great way for little ones to learn something new, develop new skills and create something unique and made just by them. So grab some craft supplies, put on your thinking cap, use your imagination and make something fun - and learn something in the process. Do not forget to add a fun activity as well to put that new craft to good use.
To get your child ready to tackle 3rd grade math with confidence, it is time to introduce learning aids at home. Most parents assume that worksheets, word problems and visual representations are the most helpful tools, but many forget the importance of online tools that offer educational value. If you choose the right programs, you can help pave the way for success for your child by incorporating fun, challenging games that promote the learning and understanding of 3rd grade math. Many online math games are designed purely for entertainment and will not do much in terms of teaching your child. While these games can be fun and engaging for third graders, you want to choose games that will practice the skills being taught in school. Look for games and puzzles that are part of an adaptive learning program. This means that the online games are well-thought out and match the same set of skills that are being taught in the third grade curriculum. The program is structured toward each individual student and fills in the gaps where the child is struggling.
Also your kids can send happy birthday cards to friends. They come in five options to choose from the making friends feel individually loved and appreciated. Just think of sending a card with pretty animals, cones and cake, bunny duck drawings that not only look great but also are a source of learning as they can be used as instructional materials in school. Kids will have fun while at the same time learning to read and write.
Here are some other sharing subjects to explore: Take Away Store - hot chips (35 per cup), milk shakes (3/4 cup of milk per shake) - how much for 26 people? Concert -toilet paper - 10 sheets per person, 100 sheets per roll, 3 000 people attending- how many rolls? Dog Shelter - 1 cup of biscuits large dog, 3/4 cup for medium dog etc - how much for 10 big, 5 medium etc? Jelly bean competition - Big jar took 12 bags of jelly beans - 124 beans in 1 bag - how many beans in total? These are a great way to explore a range of math skills. Choose one subject and choose questions that relate to that. An obvious one is school: At Collins State School there are 23 students in Kindergarten, 24 in Grade 1, 23 in Grade 2, 18 in Grade 3, 22 in Grade 4, 17 in Grade 5, 19 in Grade 6 and 22 in Grade 7.
