Experiences in Everyday LIfe

Talking with children about their world encourages them to learn. Asking them questions helps them to think about what they are doing and a way to focus. Even asking them for advice is helpful way learn for them to learn. For example if you ask them how to fold a napkin fold it how they showed you to do it.Helping in chores and housework is a learning opportunity as well.It gives them a sense that they are a part of the family and play an important role as the rest.

Art and Music

Art and music helps children express their feelings and improve their fine motor skills. Children should be encouraged to use raw materials, praised instead of corrected, and their art work should be displayed.
Rhythm and Repetitive songs can help a child with their memory. Using "Finger Play" with songs such as The Itsy, Bitsy Spider helps improve their motor skills. Music is also a great teaching tool because many children will set other facts to music. Using old plans, bowls, and mixing spoons also helps a child develop an interest in music.

Developing an interest in reading is important because books provide an opportunity to learn about and understand the world. Learning is more fun for children who enjoy reading. An important factor in learning to read is the ability to hear phonemes. (Phoneme is the smallest individual sound in a word, such as the ou in house). Rhyming are helpful for developing phoneme awareness. Another way to develop phoneme awareness is through Alliteration. Alliteration is the repetition of certain sounds. Using alliteration based book can help a child make association outside of the book. Such as the ABC book by Dr. Seuss. Watching television is not a substitute for reading. Studies show that if their caregivers read to them they will have an easier time learning to read.Being bilingual is easier for them to learn to read as well. Children who are bilingual seem to understand that printed words convey a specific meaning sooner than children who speak only one language.
