Children are eager to learn so parents should always be equipped with teaching strategies. If you really pay close attention to children, you will see that they exhibit curiosity, independence, and self-direction as they learn about relationships, materials, actions, and ideas. If we’re patient with our children, we would see that they are inventive and flexible in solving a variety of problems. Children make plans and decisions, as well as express choices based on their interests.
Here’s some teaching strategies to help you teach your children:
• Focus on effort, not outcome.
• Acknowledge when children try new things.
• Balance freedom and structure in the physical environment.
• Give children time to come up with their own solutions.
• Make time and assist children who are frustrated.
• Provide open-ended materials and experiences that appeal to all the senses.
• Take with children about how they use materials.
• Encourage children to use a variety of resources to answer their own questions.
It’s important to allow your children to express themselves freely while in a learning environment. Keep in mind that everyone learns differently. What works for one child may not work for another.
