For those of us with young ones in our lives; children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and more, we’d like to wish them health and wonderful opportunities for growth and learning.
On the subject of growth, perhaps you’ve heard the saying by the famous American Author, Diane Ackerman, “Play is our brain’s favourite way of learning”? It’s true! Children absorb things best when they are actively occupied in the learning process.
It is through play that children can explore, learn to make decisions and use that amazing ability called imagination where anything is possible.
The benefits of play are many. These include learned life skills, self-confidence, social development, problem solving and critical thinking skills. Imagine, all this while your child is having fun!
We all want the best for the children in our lives. Today, the world moves at lightning speed with new ideas and ways of working, but interestingly, also going back to old trusted ways.
For instance did you know many of the best mathematics schools worldwide today consider the abacus essential to teach math skills? The abacus is a counting tool that is said to pre-date Christ, so that’s going way back.
Also, have you heard about the window of opportunity in early learning? Child development experts say it is an optimal but limited time in children’s lives where learning occurs easily and is absorbed at a higher rate.
A good example of this is learning a language. You may know that children pick up languages far easier than adults. That’s because they are within the window of opportunity in language learning.
