Children who struggle in a traditional learning environment can also get great benefit from digital learning games. Interactive platforms provide a fun way to learn without fear of failure and give rewards that are in line with what is being learned. Through games, your child can gain the confidence he or she needs to approach math concepts that once seemed impossible. This confidence helps improve school performance and can lead to more positive participation in a classroom environment. Unlike basic school curriculum, digital learning games can be designed to move at your child has pace. Many games feature levels that build upon each other, so your child does not have to sit through lessons that he or she has already mastered. Instead, each level of the game increases in difficulty depending on how well certain ideas have been grasped. This creates a custom learning environment catered to the pace your child feels comfortable with. Without the stress of worrying about being left behind or the boredom that can result from having to wait to move on, kids can work at the speed they prefer and learn in a way that is just right for them.
Never allow boredom to set in. We know now that when learning is fun and exciting, the brain is actually growing many new dendrites that make connections with many other dendrites. The more connections the better. We also know now that boredom destroys dendrites. Small children quickly become bored with worksheets, especially skill and drill worksheets. Yet another reason to avoid skill and drill worksheets like the plague. Never allow your child to use a worksheet unsupervised. Some parents use worksheets to provide time to fix supper or add another load of laundry. Unfortunately, while you are npt looking, your child just might have practiced a mistake several times. The time you thought you saved is not nearly as much time as it will take to fix that mistake. If you consistently do these things, you might be able to successfully use worksheets; but, seriously, a few minutes of your personal time will provide better learning for your child than a truckload of worksheets.
Toddlers will play-with us or without us. It is our role to enhance the play when it is supportive and to intervene or change the situation if it appears too difficult and exceeds their abilities. Toddlers ca not see things or understand things "from another person has point of view". They are busy establishing their autonomy. Keep these in mind when you are planning your activities and your days with your two year olds will flow and be rewarding for them and for you.
