There are certain basic skills that encourage learning in general.
But again, if we are talking about as complex as the reading and writing skills.
From birth, it is essential that the child acquires habits and routines.
But this is especially important since the beginning of school life.
In principle are simple rituals in relation to how structuring the time at home.
For example, what often do children in the afternoons: first picnic, then they play awhile, later they bathe and finally, dinner before going to bed.
The way of structuring this time is something peculiar to each family. Interesting thing is that it is something constant and repetitive and that it is adapted to each child's age.
Maybe 3 years we spend more time game and from the 4 or 5 time is dedicated to the game and another to the tasks of school type (read a book, scribble on paper…).
This distribution of the time varies with age and proposals coming from the school.
For both, purchasing a series of routines will encourage that child to be ordered and will help you develop the "habit of study".
Techniques to encourage memorization of children
Parents can also help children to foster care, your memory and concentration. Contrary to what may seem, these skills can work in a playful manner in every day.
The songs, a useful resource for memory
The use of songs and children's poetry is very useful for memory.
Parents can go singing or reciting the drive path of the College.
We can start us and soon will observe how children participate and sing with us.
When they know enough songs, let them sing alone.
For example, we started reciting a verse and at the end we remain silent so that they finish it. In other words, we sing songs "half".
The games help develop attention and concentration
Attention and concentration are working very varied: there are many games that help develop them.
For more toddlers we can observe books with them and ask that they seek and brought us things.
A little older, when they already know how to speak well and have begun to work certain letters in the school, you can play the "veo – veo".
And when they have gone to primary education help them much regulated games of the type: "Who is who?", "Sink the fleet", that it encourages observation and contribute to concentration.
Tricks to encourage the taste for children's reading
In a more concrete way, parents can also enhance the learning of reading and writing to support the work of the school.
To do this, it is essential to that question to the teacher, that we update on what you are seeing in every moment, with which letters are working, if you noticed any difficulty in our child and which tasks we recommend to support him at home.
In any case, this support must be in a playful way, without overloading the child. Not understand that we are demanding certain results.
For those children that reading and writing starts them to make difficult, insist on certain points can result in rejection. So if you don't like reading, force him to do so, it may be counterproductive. Rather, we should make reading something attractive you.
For the little ones, we can write in large letters and calligraphy of school names of objects that are at home and laminated, placing them next to the object to which it corresponds. So fill the House of "signs", for example, bathroom, kitchen, computer, washbasin, mirror.
We can also put your name and our posters and play put them next to our photos. See if over time you learn to distinguish where his name is written or what they put in each of the signs.
When already are more older, can sit us with them to read a while each day: books that them are attractive and read half the pages. Or read a story at bedtime, making them also participate in the reading in some way.
Very important is the drama that we make of what we read: put voices, gesturing, stage actions,… All this will make history engages them and they want to know what is written on each page. We can help here to his memory being repetitive stories and leaving them to disclose us "what will happen now?" All these actions help the development of the taste for reading.
It is also important to let them experiment with pencils, to participate with them in drawings, guide them to create images, play together to write. But, above all, the fundamental thing is surprise us with every thing they do and congratulate them on everything that made even though they are just games…
One last tip…
The positive reinforcement and our participation in the tasks together are key to all learning. For this reason it is important to patience and enthusiasm to help our son.
