Preparing for school - when to start
Proponents of early development suggests that to teach a child to read and write to almost with year. But in the traditional system of education the age of onset of learning core subjects recommended to shift up to 5-6 years. It was then that a larger number of children begins to show interest in the lessons. Listen to the advice of those, and other, but when to start training your child - only you can decide. And will help you to determine the right time the baby itself. When he begins to show interest in reading, ask what is written - you can start to teach him the alphabet. Will it be in 2 years, or 6 - not so important. To fit the child, certainly not worth it, the teaching force is much slower.
What the child should know to first class?
Preparing for school involves the training of core subjects of reading and math. The child should know the alphabet, be able to read the syllables, to know the numbers up to 100 be able to count from 10 backwards. If the baby goes to kindergarten - there's all this teach. If not, then the care of this falls on the parents. They should give the child the basics of reading and numeracy. You can do this yourself, or hire Tutors. A good option for children who do not visit the garden - educational mugs. There, the baby adapts to the school setting and learn to socialize with other children, to listen to the teacher. This gradual preparation for school is very important, without it the child will be hard the first time.
Preparing for school - psychological aspects
How to help your child to adapt to school? After all, to sit in the classroom still listening to teacher is not easy. Especially the kid who used to do several things at once - play with friends, draw, sing. In good schools the learning process is designed so that children are actively introduced into it, they are interested. But in the normal lessons are classically - children sit and listen, the teacher says.
If your school is a traditional learning - help your child. First, do not scold him if the teacher is not satisfied with the behavior of the baby. In the form of games, dolls seated at their desks, explain why the lessons can't run around or scream. Try to convey to the child that what the teacher says, it is very useful. For example, teach him how to read price tags in stores and tell us that soon he'll be able to buy the products. The baby is very important to be independent and he will make an effort to learn new, something that will bring it closer to the adult world.
Second, talk to the teacher. Not swearing, calmly tell us about the features of the child's behavior. Since Soviet times, the school used all students to row under one comb. It is a gross error. And in your forces to change the attitude of teachers to your child. Set up relationships with the teacher, make friends. Help the classroom, accompany children on walks and excursions. Good ratio of teacher to child is one of the most important aspects of successful training.
