Tips to Make Your Children Close with Book

Familiarize them with the book

A child can consider a book as friend or a foe. Generally parents thrust the books on their child by telling them that they should read a book. But book reading should not be a compulsion. If a toddler is given a book everyday just like that then he consider that book like any other toy. He tries to glance through it trying to understand the meaning. He/she should be left alone with that toy. Now the book is his/her friend. As they grow we should start having designated time in which we read out a story to them. As parents are getting busier the child appreciates that the book reading time and consider it as a time spend with their parents. So they attach a positive memory with book reading. Thus thereby they know if they want some time with their parent, they would ask them to read the book. Now book has become their best friend. Like a famous quote by Winston S. Churchill “If you cannot read them, any rate…fondle them. Peer into them…let them fall open where they will,…Set them back on the shelf with your own hands…If they cannot be your friends, let them at any rate be your acquaintances.”

Understanding the child’s interest

In the world of social networking child does or wants what they like. We should try and find the interest of the child and find the books related to that. It is easier for children to read materials that interest them. As a matter of fact, if a child doesn’t like animals, it is almost impossible to get him to make any sense of the article he is reading. So the best way to start him on his literary journey is to find his interest, and once he has developed his interest of reading, he’ll become more interested in different areas. By then, he would have acquired a reading skill that will help him understand what he is reading.

Setting an example

If the child grows up in the house full of books there are more chances of being a book lover. Therefore the parents will have to set an example for them. They should be reading everyday so as the child also follows you.
Make it a fun & never ending experience!
Books have power to transport you to a magical world or hard-hitting reality with just some black and white words. And it has been proved again and again that children who read books have more fertile mind an thus perform better than their counterparts.

  • Treat the world of book reading a fun time.
  • Select right book for your child. You can select a series of books of their favorite characters from the fascinating world. Read fun books, exciting books and adventurous books to your children.
  • Involve the family in becoming the characters of the story. This will make them understand well.
  • Atmosphere can play a big role in developing a child’s interest in reading. You can also set the place and make the kids imagine that how the place would be where the story is going through.
  • One should not let the child read in his own mind. This makes their diction and pronunciation poor. Reading aloud is always recommended to kids as it makes them speak fluently.

As they say “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.” Books are and always remain man’s best friend. The way they are read can change but their importance will never diminish.

 

Tips to Make Your kids Gentle Enough

  • Always giving a green signal to the kids may lead to your children taking you for granted. It makes them feel that they can get anything and everything that they want. Therefore, parents should know when to say no and when to say yes towards the demands of their kids. Saying no in the right situations restrict them from dreaming of unnecessary wishes,
  • Many parents are found to be bribing their kids rather than rewarding them. Bribing not only spoils the moral character of the kids but also of the parents. On the other hand, when children are rewarded for something good that they have done, gives them a lot of encouragement and also build up a positive attitude inside them,
  • Parents should always teach their children to share their stuffs. They also should be taught to give their stuffs to those who are in need. Even when your children receive gifts in their birthdays, ask them to give a return gift to the other kids. It gives them a sense of sharing things and also giving gifts to others,
  • Just do not buy anything your kids ask you to buy. In fact, providing them with allowances make them understand the value of money. When your kids crave for something, ask them to buy the stuff with that allowance. It teaches them many lessons of life from a very early period,
  • One of the vital things is action. Tell your kids that every action has consequences and also tell them that more they will commit mistakes, more they will be punished. In fact, punishment is something children fear the most. At the same time, also do not forget that too much of punishment may lead to a negative impact on the kids,

Parents’ love for their kids is something very natural, but an extreme level of this may hamper their life. Therefore parents should be a little strict with a kind heart.

Movement Education

Art

Concepts like shape, size, spatial relationships, and line are part of both art and movement education. Whenever kids arrange their bodies in the space around them, it can be said they’re discovering creative concepts as well as physical ones. When they move into different levels, in different directions, along different pathways, and in relation to others and to objects, they’re growing their spatial consciousness.

Language Arts

the potential for discovering language arts through movement are infinite. Consider acting out the meaning of individual words from stories, poems, or even spelling lists. Through movement, kids can begin to understand the meaning of action words like slide, follow, jump, or stomp – or expressive words like elegant, smooth, or vigorous. According to pre primary teachers training course preschool kids can work in pairs to display the meanings of simple opposites like sad and happy, or up and down, with primary-grade partners challenged to show possibilities for tight versus loose or open versus closed.

Mathematics

Quantitative ideas are part of the verbal communication of mathematics, and movement is an ideal, physical means of conveying many of these ideas to kids. For example, activities linking levels and body shapes can show the concepts of big and little, long and short, high and low, wide and narrow. The movement element of force is all about light and heavy.

Music

to experience movement and music together, sing the scale to the kids, explaining how each consecutive note is higher in pitch than the previous one. If probable, show on a keyboard or show the scale written on a staff. Ask the kids to sing the scale with you. Then ask them to lay their hands in their laps, raising them a little bit higher with every note you sing. Once the kids have grabbed the idea, confront them to show with their whole bodies, beginning close to the floor and getting as close to the ceiling as probable.

Science

many themes classically explored in classrooms fall under the science category, as well as the human body – body parts and their functions, the senses, cleanliness, and nutrition, seasons, and other topics related to nature – weather, animals, plants, and the ocean. All of these naturally lend themselves to movement experiences. Relaxation exercises that require the kids to contract and relax the muscles are also excellent for increasing an awareness of these important body parts. Similarly, relaxation exercises focusing on the breath can generate an awareness of the lungs.

Social Studies

Lessons in social studies for young kids begin with the kids themselves because that is where their world begins. Self-concept, therefore, is a logical starting point. Ask kids to imagine walking as though sad, madding, arrogant, scared, tired, or happy. Can they show these emotions with hands or faces alone?

Possibilities flourish for exploring such social studies themes as holidays and celebrations, occupations, and transportation. For the latter, you can ask kids to think of and portray modes of transportation found mainly in cities, on water, and in the sky. Introduce the kids to traffic lights by playing a movement game with three sheets of paper – one red, one yellow, and one green. When you hold up the green sheet, the kids walk. They walk in place when they see the yellow sheet and come to a complete stop when you hold up the red.

 

Positive Influence in Boarding School

Often parents need to make a choice between a boarding school and a public school. And the choice can be based on different aspect for different families. The parents need to consider so many things like financial resources, needs, and priorities that may differ from family to family. But over and above, boarding school score much higher than a public school.

To begin with, the size of the class is much smaller in a boarding school. And due to the smaller class size, the students in a boarding school get much more personal attention and chances are that he will get a complete positive atmosphere for his growth and development. Such one-on-one attention allows students to develop specialized study habits and better focus while learning. But if you look at the public schools they often have a very big class size that can go up to 30 or even more. Thus boarding schools ensures personal attention for every student studying there.

Another big benefit of boarding schools is the qualified and experienced staff. Most of the teachers there are completely dedicated to their students. As the class size is already small, it does not take much effort for the teachers and student to develop special bonds with each other. This too acts as a good foundation for a great education.

As the boarding schools do not have to face any financial limitations, there are no cut backs and the students are given the best opportunities in the field of learning. You will find these schools offering diverse programs like sports, art, yoga, equine programs, music, and many other outdoor activities like water rafting or rock climbing. Students of other schools definitely miss out on such opportunities. This clearly shows that students in a boarding school get a well-rounded education that is not possible in public schools.

Another advantage of a boarding school is that they nurture family bonds and focus on family relations. Parents are encouraged to get involved and have a complete say in their child’s education. They attend meetings, participate in outings with their kids, go on adventure trips. All these develop stronger skills in the home and the child feels very close to his or her parents’ despite remaining away from them in a boarding school. The family interaction goes along way in developing new skills and strategies among both parent and their children that strengthen the family bond and improve functioning at home.

To wrap up, one can clearly see the many advantages of putting your child in a boarding school, but keep in mind that not all boarding schools are made equal. So make some effort and put your child only in the best boarding school.
