Helping Your Child Consolidate Their Learning

There are many lessons we can teach a child, but it’s not always easy to teach them how to learn. After all, this is a personal journey, and so outside of influences, it’s hard to make them proceed at a certain pace. Of course, there are some techniques we can use to help them in this direction, and potentially, remove obstacles from their learning path, but that’s often all we have control over. In this post, we’ll discuss exactly that, and how to effectively implement those solutions.

Helping a child consolidate their learning can help in a wide array of circumstances. It can not only help their memory, but potentially aid them with the topics they may be struggling with, or perhaps prepare for certain milestones like being tested for a qualification.

At this rate, you can make sure that your child not only feels like they can learn, but empowered to learn, and perhaps most importantly of all - interested to learn. Let’s get started in that way:

Use Reliable, Digestible Study Guides

It’s good to use additional resources to help approach subjects in different ways, with a few different formats to help them learn. For instance, an anatomy and physiology study guide is best aided with heavy illustrations, digestible formatting, and the ability to return to these notes as applicable. Furthermore, you may decide to curate access to additional supportive learning measures, such as using documentaries that approach a topic and are verified for your child’s age range - even if this doesn’t consolidate fact-learning, it can certainly help. As such, you’ll be aiding them in their learning quest.

Imbue A Love For Learning

Imbuing a love for learning in your child is more than just a nice effort at inspiration, but rather, something they will take with them. First, it’s important for them to understand that struggling to learn is never a problem, it can be overcome with careful effort and gentle encouragement. Furthermore, children learn by osmosis, so it can be quite rewarding and helpful to aid them in this approach without delay. If you can achieve this, you’ll be more confident in granting them the support they deserve.

Simple Learning Techniques

Simple learning techniques can be tremendously important for your child to utilize. For instance, helping them understand the value of flashcards can help them prepare for tests with careful revision. Time management can help too, such as showing them how to set a timer for working 45 minute sessions and then taking a break as appropriate little measures like this can help your child not only grapple with their work more promptly, but do so without feeling overly overwhelmed.

Of course, it can be nice to embody the lessons from time to time too, such as visiting a local museum or reading with them. Little efforts like that go a long way.

With this advice, we hope you can help your child consolidate their learning, as they deserve to.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
