Make Study Habits More Interesting in Younger Students

I love being a hands-on mom to my children.  Now that my eldest son is back to school as grade 1, we are back to our study habits. At first the transition from summer vacation to regular school day study habits is not that easy. Knowing our child spent most of their times playing during the summer vacation. Let me share how I make my son's study habits more interesting. Children nowadays are exposed to different electronic gadgets like iPhone, iPad, tablets, laptops, etc. I admit that it did help sometimes to tame my child with its enjoyable games and apps. But, the thing is it is not actually helping me to discipline my child. Based on my observation when I let him play in a prolonged period (be it educational game or his favorite game), he will get used to it and will not be interested with other activities like reading and writing. So, the first thing that I did when summer ... [ Continue Reading ]

Singing the Christmas Carols Together Enhances Multiple Intelligence

Singing Christmas Caroling

We love singing together! This is one of our family bonding activity that is surely a hit to my children. Now that we are fast-approaching the Christmas season, I am thinking of singing the Christmas carols with my children as our bonding activity at home when it is already on Christmas vacation. Kids are very much interested about Christmas and they are so joyful to know more about this special occasion. Gifts, Toys, Santa Claus, Jesus Christ, Snowman, and Rudolph the red nose reindeer are some of the words that my six-year-old son keeps on asking me to describe for him. What I did is sing the Christmas carols then he sings with me. I think that singing the Christmas carols together with my son enhances his multiple intelligence. Most kids can easily remember the tune and some lyrics of the song the moment they hear it repeatedly. This is what I observed from my son. He would ask ... [ Continue Reading ]
