I'm not saying that if you don't train your child during these early years will totally be a failure. No child is born a genius, and none is born a fool. Other children have inherited skills and talents from their parents that contribute to their confidence as they grow up. Others too who were not pre-schooled can learn things easily. But there's a big difference in stimulating the child's brain during their early years than not at all.
The first step to teaching the above is strengthening the small muscles in the hands and wrists that are used in handwriting. This process is often referred to as building fine motor skills. You can encourage fine motor development by having your child use art supplies like crayons, paints, markers, glue and scissors. Lacing activities, stringing beads and cheerios, playing with playdoh, scooping sand or rice, and activities like pouring and stirring are also great fine motor activities.
Although you can get free worksheets to download online, it is difficult to tell whether you have covered all learning areas in the preschool curriculum with individual pages that you download one at a time. Printable worksheets can be done with your child when it is convenient for you. Between the ages of 3 and 5 they will need your help, as they cannot read instructions, but once you've explained what they need to do on each worksheet, you can leave them to it. A worksheet should not take more than 15 to 20 minutes to complete - you can certainly squeeze that in once or twice a week.
Preschools are expected to increase their fees as a result of the budget cuts, or compensate by hiring less-qualified staff. Increased fees are likely to put preschool out of reach for many parents. Less qualified staff means that your preschooler's education suffers - you are paying for a babysitting service rather than an education.
Utilizing colors could be an excellent way to inculcate the nature, trees, water bodies, and other environmental surroundings with ease. Kids learn faster through outdoor fun activities, by make use of nature you can introduce vibrant colors to your kids. You can also plan a visit to the nearest zoo, to make your younger ones understand the animal coloring worksheets. Earth coloring pages or worksheets or activity books could be the easy to use option for parents and preschool teachers. Food drawing worksheets, animated drawing worksheets, Alphabets drawing worksheets and many more are available online in printable coloring pages format.
Preschool age is a good age to get your kids interested in writing and reading. By starting early you can lay strong learning foundations at a young age. Whatever you are teaching the kids, use a step by step approach. Don't expect them to run before they start walking. Let me give you an example to clarify what I am saying here - let's say you want to teach them alphabets. Don't start with alphabets. First concentrate on developing their fine motor skills. Get them to draw simple lines, circles, zig zag lines, tracing etc. Do this for a few weeks and then slowly move to alphabets and numbers.
