Want to get your children excited about learning but don’t know how? Here are five tips that will help.
1- Hands on learning is fun and exciting.
Explore the vast outdoors. Have the child gather samples of water in different ponds and view them through a dual power stereo microscope. What is that squiggling under your eye? Collect rock and soil samples from a hike. Don’t forget leaves and worms. When a child shows interest in a craft,sport or even a musical instrument, be sure to support them the best you can. I enjoyed yarn crafts as a child, and learned to crochet and knit with my grandmothers help.
2- Children learn by example, so open a book and disappear into another place and time.
Dr. Seuss wrote, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn the more places you’ll go.” Use this to stimulate your child to read. Even children too young to read will enjoy looking and learning from picture books.
