Teaching children will include not only teaching them to read, but also to count and solve sums, apart from various other things. Whatever you do, remember the mantra is to “be patient and make the lessons full of entertainment and fun for the child”.
Start with reading
You can start very early on teaching children how to read. When you have a baby in the womb, you can talk to it or read aloud to it. When the baby is small, read out from a book that has pictures and is bright and keep pointing at the colored pictures and saying aloud its name.
This way, the vocabulary of the child will be increasing and gradually the child will understand to relate words to objects. Their pronunciation of different words will also improve.
Numbers and counting
Now, introduce the child to numbers. This you can do with the help of games that will keep your child entertained and at the same time will help the kids to learn. There are several educative games, which the children would enjoy to play. Such games enable the child to learn and enjoy at the same time. A fine example could be to lay down five crayons and let the child count it; then take away two crayons from the five and let the child count it again.
Know how to teach children
When you are teaching children, both your creativity and patience are put to test. If you succeed in the test, you mark yourself as a good teacher. Make sure that you are enthusiastic in your manner of teaching. It is also necessary for you to have a fixed time for sitting with the child and teaching him/her. This will help the child to get into a disciplined manner of studying with following a specific routine.
If you know the ideal way of teaching children, you will be sure to have kids who will have good opportunity for personal growth.
