Today’s sharing is about learning two digits numbers. These students are in the group of age 5 &6. Today’s topic is about Learning 2 digits number and what is the significant of the 2 numbers. As usual, the teacher will give them the input and ask them to construct the numbers by using the games tool. Let’s take a pick on their activities
Can you guess what is the activity that we are doing?? 🙂 He just take a sneak peak when the teacher is not paying attention!!:) clever boy!!
The development of brain’s ability plays important part in learning. If your child(ren) is/are weak in the subject, it doesn’t mean that she/he is poor. We believe that the outer factors such as, internal/external reward, motivation, interest as well play important role in learning.
“It’s confirmed: Physical education, recess and movement are critical to learning. How? We now know that we can grow new neurons through our lifetime and that they are highly correlated with memory, mood and learning. This process can be regulated by our everyday behaviors, which include exercise. The optimal activity is voluntary gross motor, such as power walks, games, running, dance, aerobics, team sports and swimming. We also now know that early childhood movement wires up the brain to make more efficient connections. Schools can and should influence these variables.”
“Practical school applications: Support more, not less physical activity, recess and classroom movement. It raises the good chemicals for thinking, focus, learning and memory (noradrenaline, dopamine and cortisol). Students need 30-60 minutes per day to lower stress response, boost neurogenesis and boost learning. For the first few weeks of school, expose students to a variety of physical activities. Then, offer choice. That’s critical because voluntary activity does more good than forced activity, which may cause an overproduction of cortisol.”
