Play is how children utilize this particular learning style. Play is one of the most powerful vehicles for facilitating learning. When you play with your child you are demonstrating how much you value them and enjoy their company. This helps build self-esteem and many studies now reveal that children with high emotional intelligence will outperform children with higher IQ but lower self esteem. In the UK questions are being asked regarding whether children are given enough time to simply play. The pattern seems to be that children are given more time to play during their early years in school but towards the middle years a more formal approach dominates their school day. Emeritus Professor Barbara argues that the tendency for state education to focus on a more formal, left-brain orientated approach to learning can have disastrous implications for a significant percentage of children, particularly boys, who tend to be predominantly tactile learners.
The idea that an understanding of math and language fundamentals helps children do better in schools is not surprising. However, the degree to which early math skills play a role is. "The paramount importance of early math skills - of beginning school with a knowledge of numbers, number order and other rudimentary math concepts -- is one of the puzzles coming out of the study," said Duncan.
Fortunately, with only a little creativity and a home computer, homeschooling educators and parents can individualize many of these materials to reflect the interest of the child(ren) as they teach them to learn to read. Worksheets that cannot be personalized can still provide a wealth of resource ideas for worksheet and practice sheet design and creation. There are so many fresh ideas for worksheets and lesson plans available online and in homeschooling groups that there is no need to shun the use of these viable reading tools. Homemade worksheets used together with new electronic resources, such as computer programs that can individualize the instruction for each student, have been found to result in increased student success. The central idea is to supplement an established program with learning to read resources that mirror the strengths and focus of the child.
