Making something fizz, boom, or shower the kitchen with foam is easy. It’s fun, and they will remember the fizz, boom, and foam. But they likely will not remember the learning. It’s not how you build a foundation of learning.
Memorizing difficult terms and facts can be impressive. But they soon fade from memory if they aren’t anchored to related activities.
Children aren’t born knowing how to learn. They don’t realize their learning styles. They can’t tell you why they like to move, what will help them focus and remember. It’s up to us to help them learn this. It’s up to us to provide them with learning situations, where they can experience cognitive growth, learning at its best for them.
But that’s a lot for a parent to handle. There’s already so much to know, to do, and only so many hours in a given day. So how does a parent become an expert on each child’s learning and maximize the teaching for that child? Trust someone who knows. Follow the lead and relax.
