Now that you are actively working with math and language skills in kindergarten, you discover that learning is easy and almost instantly while other learning is difficult and repetitive. Sometimes many repetitions! One important thing, however, is to understand that "mistake" is a mistake that is very difficult and should be avoided at all costs.
Please understand that I'm not saying your child can not blame you. In reality mistakes are required to be part of learning. What I'm referring to is that I avoid LEARNED errors. It's important not to repeat a mistake without correction so many times to learn.
Scientists have known for decades that the brain simply learns survival-related skills such as just touching a hot cooker. The only purpose of the brain is to survive and mastery of survival skills is difficult for the brain. In the second article of the series, "7 things you always have to do," item 7 discusses the importance of using "brain-friendly" techniques for your child and lists many of these examples. One of these techniques is the frequent review – often the so-called practice or repeating .
Researchers agree that repetition is needed for a variety of learning, but the recommended sum has repeatedly changed over the years. When I started teaching in 1972, the educators thought that only a 4-7 repetition could be learned. Recent brain researchers have much better aligned the number. Now it is thought that 20 to 50 repetitions are required for learning.
Fortunately, kindergarten LOVE repetition. They like reading the same books, playing the same games, and singing over and over again; and every repetition brings your skills, vocabulary, and facts closer to learning. However, the mistake made may be a mistake and the learning mistake is very difficult to resolve. You can do the repetitions of HUNDREDS correct to "learn" a learned mistake. Yes, it says HUNDREDS right reps! If you've ever tried to "repair" a bad habit, then you know how true it is.
So what does this mean for you? This means you must always supervise what your own kindergarten is and love to correct mistakes as it happens – because it will happen. Never criticize your child for mistake. Carefully guide them to find the right answer and reward them. This also means that NEVER work on kids on worksheets, notebooks, smartphone applications, or computer programs, without being very supervised. All these tools make mistakes very easy. Ideally you do not use such things at all with a nursery school, but this is another daily topic.
Your child's learning needs to control. You can prevent the mistakes you have learned. Yes, you are so important!
