How can I help with my child’s learning?
These are some of the questions parents ask themselves once they start a family and the children start growing up. All fun activities that you do with your child at home are important in supporting their learning and development, and will have a lasting effect as they go on through school.When your child is still young and not able to talk yet, helping them understand new words and ideas by talking to them does help. By just taking some time every day to do some of these activities with your child will really make a difference in your child’s confidence and learning abilities, more on how to be a good mother here. Here is how to help with your child’s learning.
- Telling and singing nursery rhymes.
- Talking to your child all the time and responding back to them, even if all they make are sounds and gestures.
- Exploring the park at different times of the year, and explaining what you see and the features around.
- Cooking and baking with them.Not easy but fun to do.
- Sharing a book with them, reading to them.
- Planting in a pot or a garden patch.
- Using the weather to extend the child’s vocabulary e.g snow, wind, mist, rain, puddles and even shadows.
- Talking to your child about numbers, letters and words when you are out an about.
- Allowing your child to cut pictures from old magazines and stick them.
- Going to the supermarket and encouraging talk about different package shapes.
- Encouraging messy play, if not at home, most children centres do offer them.
