Strategies to Support Learners
Observing a child on how he learns a visual or auditory stimulus works better over kinesthetic or a combination. This is the foundation for him/her to be interested in what you are offering to learn.
The biggest benefit isn’t just about mental development, but it encompasses psychological, social, and emotional growth. It motivates the child to learn about a subject. It instills curiosity and allows him/her to learn naturally and creatively.
Keeping music, art, sports, number fun, language and literacy, science, and last but not the least natural world around to identify and relate himself to.
Work with child’s pace and interest
Look for opportunities to work with your child at his pace and focus on the child’s interests. If children watch and show interest in lamps, take the opportunity to explore how to make lamps. The child is more likely to engage in child-led activities than to concentrate on them through direct instruction.
Anticipatory plan- It is a very important strategy, which will allow the child to work in a flow without fear of the unknown. At the same time be willing to change the plan. If the child is excited about a game he/she is playing, but it is time to read a story in a daily routine chart, build on what he/she is doing, and ask to talk about the game or find a story that connects to the game.
Reflection – Provides a child to take a pause and review his learning journey.
Records of a child’s journey so far. Which can be mapped to his/her personality, learning outcomes, goals, and interests.
