Every child is from a different background, not only culturally and socially, but also with respect to their learning levels and skills. During the course of their education, many children have special education needs. Special education needs means that a child has greater difficulty learning than students of the same age.
Teaching your child about the differently abled
The differently abled are often the target of bullies and they are teased or ostracised especially in school. It’s important to sensitize children to the special needs of the differently abled. Teaching them at home and at school about how to interact with the differently abled can go a long way in promoting harmony and a sense of understanding in your child. The key is that all children regardless of their disabilities want to be treated with love and respect. Including everyone in group activities and conversations is very important. No child should feel left out because he or she is a little “different”.
How to choose the right school for your child?
Choosing a school for your child is a very personal and individual matter. No one knows your child better than you. And again you are the best judge of your daily schedules, finances, and family values. Yet, somehow the process of choosing a school has become increasingly complicated, and even the most conscientious parents are overwhelmed.
Art for art’s sake?
Although some may regard art education as a luxury, simple creative activities are very necessary for child development. Learning to create art and appreciate aesthetics is very important to the all-round development of a child.
Children with behavioural problems often are misunderstood, simply because they are not good at communicating their feelings and emotions. If something upsets them, they might just throw a fit or a tantrum, which leads them to be labelled as difficult kids.
How important is class size?
When you are scouting for good schools to admit your kids into, one of the factors you may have to consider is the size of the class.It’s quite natural to assume that if the class size is too large, then your kids won’t be able to get the undivided attention of the teacher.
A good teacher makes for a good student
“A teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of curiosity, knowledge, and wisdom in the pupils” said Ever Garrison.
A good teacher will engage his or her students and bring out the best in them so that they can shine bright. All children are born intelligent and with good capacity for learning. They may have different styles of learning. Some might be tactile learners while others auditory learners, while still others visual learners.
