Keep It Fun
Let's Talk Learning Styles
Children are different in many ways and one of those ways is with learning. There are all sorts of learning styles out here. Once you hone in on it and learn what your child's preferred style is you can help better guide them with lessons and activities they may be having a hard time with. It can even help with your decisions on where they will get their education from. Below are some fun tools and activities that include a few different styles. Check out the chart below to review your child's learning preference or you can ask a few questions based on the learning styles below to understand.
This is so important this school year here in 2020 to get a head start on understanding your child's learning style. Home schooling is now a regular part of a lot of school aged parents vocabulary. But what about the 2-5 year old parents who are in between daycare and kindergarten age and still want their child learning? And what if you're the parent that's not comfortable with sending your tots back? Don't worry I have a few resources I can share with you to keep your child active and still learning and playing and out of your hair in some cases. I've used each of these tools with my now 3 year old and she's been pretty receptive to them and the up side to it is they're easy for me as a parent to use and not too much pressure. See below for each of the pictured links and products. In addition we also created and enjoyed a treasure hunt.
HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED: General Mill's Lucky Charms Cereal, Paper, Tea-bag, Lighter, Small Toys and/or Alphabet Letters, A Small Box
HERE'S WHAT YOU DO: Soak a tea-bag and use the tea to brush a piece of paper, safely use a lighter and burn the edges of the paper for authenticity, let the paper dry while Hiding ABCs & Toys in Box amongst cereal & around the house, Draw a Map on the paper (it can be as elaborate as you want or not, it's just for fun), use Pinterest as a guide if needed or you can print some free ones, Plot Letters along the map; and/or write or verbally tell child clues to find letters around the house in hidden places (ie. What letter does apple start w/ and find it where we keep the apples).
