Learning Through Play
Child's play is important. It helps his mind, body and language.The best way to get a child ready for school is through play. Here are some ways to do this:
- Encourage your child to use arm and leg muscles in order to develop good coordination as well as self-esteem. Help your child climb stairs, build block towers, and play ball.
- Give your child opportunities to draw and scribble. Strengthening hand and finger muscles helps your child learn to write.
- Allow your child to be part of a playgroup. He should learn to work and play with others.
- Limit your child's television viewing. Encourage other activities like playing outdoors or doing creative projects like finger-painting, helping bake, or pretending.
