How to facilitate children’s Primary learning
Primary learning does not have to seek to imbue the child with an important load of knowledge, as well as provide him with the tools and skills that will allow him later to be a self-sufficient student so that he is able to acquire more knowledge from Secondary.
Knowing how to read and write are, together with knowing how to listen and speak, the basis on which all education is based. Likewise, language difficulties will be reflected in all subjects.
The importance of mathematics for the child
Another great Primary learning educational matter also important for its instrumental nature is Mathematics, which provide tools and operational base not only for science careers but also in others, since statistics is, for example, present in many careers of letters. This subject trains the child to know how to think, analyze, reason and anticipate consequences in a logical way. Contrary to what some think, Mathematics is close to the student’s real life. The very fact that today’s children are very consumer makes them need calculation.
Subject to the knowledge of the environment
Knowledge of the Environment (History, History of Art, Geography, Natural Sciences and Physics) is another relevant subject, which allows to open the child’s mind to the complexity of the world and primary learning situations such as the neighborhood, the city, nature, museums ??, placing it better in their environment. It is positive that parents, in parallel with the action of the school, provide the child opportunities to expand horizons through contact with friendly families, shows, trips and other environments. Very closed families in their small worlds limit the possibilities of the child.
Eat and sleep well so you can learn
The child needs to have his or her needs for food and sleep well covered. Some children do not sleep well and yawn in class because they go to bed too late. Others take very light breakfasts, while some more are overloaded with extracurricular activities (sometimes, motivated by the fact that parents do not have time to pick them up at school at a certain time), which turns their day into a stressful time trial race.
Primary learning children need to play. At this stage, you should not take home too many duties. After spending the whole day at school and having done other extracurricular activities, the house should not be an extension of the school.
The time to study in each
The Primary learning study requires time and habit. In order to facilitate this habit, a fixed time and schedule is essential every day, as well as having the appropriate environment. The child must have a specific place in the house to study; a place that is quiet, without a television, well lit and specifically intended for that activity.
It is important the order of notebooks and books, which must always be in the same place. The most frequently used should be placed at hand from the table so that the child does not have to get up to pick them up. It is convenient to get used to the use of the agenda, which will play an important role later. This agenda is a good ally when it comes to programming.
A cork board can also be useful to always keep in view the most necessary information. We have to invite the child to attend in class (many of the doubts that have been resolved in the classroom) and ask when he does not understand something. In this way, he will not lose the rhythm of the explanations and will primary learning to intervene with his peers, which will have positive repercussions in his adult stage.
