The Lysmon Smart Education Method advances one more step in the learning of children from 0 to 3 years old, and incorporates for the new academic year 2020-2021 an essential tool to generate an adequate maturation process in the students of the Education Centers. Bilingual Children adhered to the Brand.
From our Educational Laboratory Challenges The possibility of establishing a new line of work was raised in early 2019 in which our educational teams could help the little ones to enhance their abilities to be good thinkers, to generate enriching experiences in the classroom or at home, through the study of the actions carried out and the consequences obtained.
Adults have long mistakenly believed that we are all born with the ability to think, however, those skills are learned through exercising activities that have tools appropriate to the age or educational cycle with which you are working, adapting the contents to the planned tasks and the specific vocabulary for the needs of the little ones, thus creating an environment in which thought is integrated into the acquisition of what is being learned.
In rural areas of India, families in charge of a blind minor frequently isolate and deprive him/her of the care and attention they provide to their other children; such situation becomes even more severe among lower-caste families, orphans and if the blind child is a girl. Lysmon classrooms two tools will allow us to achieve those goals, thinking routines and thinking skills. The first are intended to guide our students, through simple questions, to give a simple structure to the discussions and presentations of topics that are dealt with daily in the assembly, in carrying out a scheduled activity or at a specific time of the day in which a question arises that worries the group of the classroom.
How do we apply routines and thinking skills in classrooms?
These routines of thought, as their name suggests, are used regularly every day, gradually generating in boys and girls a habit about how they question their world, what their vision of the things that surround them is like and your family relationships, friendship, etc.
The second step, thinking skills, involves raising a little more the skills of our students and they must be supported by diagrams, images and all those elements that allow children to visualize the subject being worked on.
The results that we obtain with this formula of work in the classroom is help our boys and girls put their mental world in order, that goes from simplicity to complexity. Their learning makes them go from insisting on doing the same things every day, listening to the same story before sleeping, or seeing the same series of drawings, facts that give them confidence and self-confidence, to discovering a whole universe of stimuli before those who do not know how to respond.
We see how little by little his game is more structured, imitates references he knows, progressively eliminates fears and accumulates abstract knowledge. In Lysmon classrooms, our educators will focus part of their work on making small hypotheses about how to act in a situation, what consequences an action can have and how they can feel if the result is positive or not.
Articulating questions, observing the environment, getting to know yourself and deciding what is interesting to them, are going to be the great challenges that our students will experience in the next academic year 2020-2021 in Lysmon nursery schools. An initial evaluation process that our educators will use to keep the motivation of the little ones active to improve their learning.
How to promote these routines of family thinking?
In the Lysmon educational community, we offer mothers and fathers, committed to the education and learning of their young sons and daughters, some tips for working at home that allow them to complement the task that Lysmon educators do in their classrooms:
- Discuss with your son and daughter the emotions and experiences they have experienced during the day.
- Always answer your questions, your doubts and everything that generates surprise or insecurity. Take their opinion into account, help them to tell what a drawing from a story, an advertisement or a toy suggests to them.
- That your sons and daughters have contact with other children their age, either playing in the park, attending a storytelling, swimming pool or event that allows them to have a broader view of the environment in which they move.
- Count, count and not stop counting; always playing, count stars, socks, toys or plants, talk to them about numbers and quantities to awaken their love for logical-mathematical, in addition to printing the taste for order, making pairs, groups or units.
- Generating routines and thinking skills in our students is one of the challenges that the Lysmon Smart Education Method has set out to keep our families very happy, enjoying how their sons and daughters They improve their abilities to be the best thinkers of the XNUMXst century.
