:when my children were an infant, I’ve used right brain training approach with flashcards and hands on activities(even till now for my 4/2yo)..Today I’m a happy Mummy as I’ve taught them the very basic thingy, that’s to create their learning interest from the very young age. Till this age, I don’t have to worry about them going to Pre school whereby they know the basic themes that will be taught in pre school without the need to worry about them not able to learn well. When Adelle goes to Pre-N, she mastered most of the themes, same thing gotta happen to Ayden next yr, he knows most of it as well….
I’m one who don’t believe in learning by memorizing, writing and reading of books. I believe more on hands on. When children get hands on, they will learn better this way as they learn by playing which will somehow go into their brains faster than by just reading it.
During my time, my parents doesn’t have this ‘belief’ or rather they don’t have much knowledge in this. (maybe it’s not so popular during their time yet) This is the reason why I dislike and can’t excel in my studies.
Today, I had better understanding on learn thru play and to create the child learning interest from very young, I’ll be sure to start this with my children. And that’s what I’m doing now.
As such, I’m also very thankful and happy that my children are learning very well and we’re always so excited when come to lesson time with me.
Most importantly is they already know most of the basic things that will be taught in Pre – N or Nursery, not forgetting how enjoyable they were each time I try any new activities with them.
Keep up the good work, my children.
