Truly, your little cute child has all the capacity to learn virtually anything while he is yet innocent-looking infant. According to researches, children who were trained and developed during these informative years proved to be more alert and more active in school than those who were not. Im not saying that if you dont train your child during these early years will totally be a failure. No child is born a genius, and none is born a fool. Other children have inherited skills and talents from their parents that contribute to their confidence as they grow up. Others too who were not pre-schooled can learn things easily. But theres a big difference in stimulating the childs brain during their early years than not at all. See below:
Children enjoy using pencils, charcoal, pastels and chalk. Using these encourages them to vary the intensity or depth of colors. Markers have a place but they are not my first choice. Two of my favorites are charcoal on white card stock paper (so that it can withstand the intensity of the interaction and not tear) and finger paint. Worthy of note here is use of paint smocks for either activity. If your preschooler has to stop and worry about getting dirty or messy, it interferes with the discovery process. Charcoal and Pastel Drawings Lets start with charcoal. Set your kids up with large sheets of white cardstock. I have even bought poster board and cut it in sections so that everyone has canvas to work on. Give your kids charcoal pieces and encourage them to draw whatever they want. Show them that they can use their fingers and hands to smudge the designs, thus creating different effects. They can even put a handprint on it. Ask them to discover what happens when they use different pressure or use an entire side of the charcoal rather than the tip.
Play sound games A Sound Treasure Hunt will have your child gathering items around the house all starting with the same letter - and of course there has to be some treasure at the end of the game, so be prepared! I spy with my little eye is another great game if you use sounds instead of the names of letters, and it can be played anywhere. Read, read and read some more You dont need worksheets for this one either, but you may want to join the local library rather than spend a fortune on books that your child outgrows as quickly as they outgrow their clothes! The more you read to your child, with your child and in front of your child, the quicker they will learn to read, and learn how to enjoy it too. Remember that reading is not only used to read novels. Your child will have to read instructions, worksheets, text books and test papers for a long time. The better they can read, the better their comprehension will be, and the better their test scores will be too. A comprehensive set of printable preschool worksheets will cover the basic skills your child needs so they can start school with confidence.
Quality may be a little more expensive, but good worksheets will motivate your child to produce neat work that they can be proud of. If you want to start preparing your child for preschool, kindergarten or even junior school, you need to find preschool worksheets that provide a variety of activities. Literacy, numeracy, reading, writing, drawing, social and natural sciences are some of the areas that children between the ages of 3 and 7 can and should start learning about. Look for variety in the worksheets, as repeating the same exercise over and over will bore your child. Lots of pictures, fun activities and clearly laid out worksheets are what you are looking for. If youre just looking for a few fun pages to keep the kids busy while you cook dinner, then many of the free printable worksheets available will be suitable.
A comprehensive set of worksheets covering a variety of subjects can be used to expand your childs learning experience. A worksheet about shapes can be used as part of a game to find shapes around the house, counting worksheets can be used to count things you see in the grocery store and so on. Almost everything you do with your child can be turned into an opportunity to learn - and worksheets can give you the guidance you need to find those opportunities. Worksheets that include topics such as social and natural science will help to expand your childs horizons, teaching them about their environment and how things work, while improving their vocabulary at the same time. A worksheet about farm animals can initiate a visit to the farm area at the zoo, or to a real farm, where your child can explore and learn even more.
One of the most basic ways to get your child to start counting and learning numbers in order is to count the stairs as you walk up and down. They will also start to understand the concept of "One-to-One Correspondence" which is the understanding that each object being counted represents one more or that for each object being counted you give one number. For example, If you are counting apples, the first apple would be 1, the second would be 2, the third would be 3, etc. Counting objects is a great learning experience and also very easy and accessible. You can find things to count all around you. You can count how many peas on your plate. You can count how may blocks in your box. You can count how many books, dolls, trains, cars, socks, etc. The list goes on and on and you can count anything, anywhere!
