Let children learn from practice-Woodmam

Practice brings true knowledge. Hands-on practice is a way to have an impact on the effectiveness of learning and create a facilitative reinforcement effect. In the process of hands-on practice, children will not only deepen their knowledge, but also develop their problem-solving skills.

【Parent-child scene】

Case 1:

Zhang Jie's father gave Zhang Jie a task: to practice it himself, to see how many times a piece of paper can be folded in half? Zhang Jie's first reaction was countless times. Dad said that in theory it was countless times, but in reality it would not exceed 8 times. Zhang Jie didn't believe it, so Dad asked her to try it.

Dad took out a piece of paper for Zhang Jie, she kept folding it in half, and after 7 times, she couldn't fold it in half anymore. She thought the paper her father gave her was too small, so she took a bigger piece of paper and folded it in half. But it can still be folded up to 7 times.

She was still not reconciled. She felt that if the paper was thinner, she could fold it in half a few more times. Unexpectedly, she exhausted all her efforts and used the most superb origami skills, and finally completed it 8 times. 8 times is impossible.

In this hands-on practice, Zhang Jie learned that there is a difference between the knowledge in the original book and her own practice. Through her father's guidance, she fell in love with hands-on practice, and exercised her thinking while doing it.

Case 2:

Niuniu is the only child in the family. Her mother only had her when she was nearly 40 years old, so she loves her very much. Not only does she take good care of her in life, but she also often takes care of her studies. When I was a child, my mother usually did not let the child think for himself, but wrote out the answers to the child's homework by himself, and then asked the child to copy it into the workbook. She thinks it's good for the kids.

On this day, Niu Niu learned "axial symmetry" and "centrosymmetric symmetry" in school. The teacher asked each student to truly understand these two concepts through paper-cutting after returning home.

After returning home, Niuniu excitedly took out paper and scissors, and wanted to cut the "axisymmetric" "butterfly" pattern and the center symmetrical "circle" pattern. When the mother saw the child holding the scissors, she was afraid of hurting the child herself. Although the child kept asking for the scissors, the mother took the scissors from the child. Niu Niu felt very helpless, her mother did not give herself the opportunity to do it herself.

【Expert Analysis】

Education is not simply book knowledge, it needs more practice, and practice is the only criterion for testing truth. After personal experience, the memory is stronger and the feeling is more profound, so practice is a positive and effective way of education. Only when children experience it in person will they get their own experience, so as to transform book knowledge into their own experience.

With the increasing pressure of competition, parents want their children to master more book knowledge and better cope with exams. Children are deprived of the joy of childhood, and they are faced with boring knowledge instillation every day, and lack of vivid and flexible practical activities.

It is the nature of children to like hands-on and practice. Many parents like their children to stay at home honestly, but do not like their children to practice. First, they are afraid that they will be hurt or destroy the cleanliness of the family. More importantly, because the school and society have repeatedly Emphasizing children's scores has always been "emphasis on knowledge and light on hands-on operation", which has caused parents to have misunderstandings in education.

Educator Locke emphasized that two habits in children's learning: love for knowledge, field observation and personal experience, which also shows the importance of letting children practice. Therefore, parents should pay attention to cultivating children's practical ability and let books learn knowledge comes alive.

By applying the knowledge learned in life, children deepen their understanding of knowledge while verifying book knowledge, thus forming a virtuous circle, and they can better grasp the knowledge they have learned.

The improvement of children's hands-on ability requires the support of parents. A child's growth begins more with parents letting go. Today's children have a broad vision and strong plasticity. Parents should stand in the position of assisting from the side and give children sufficient opportunities and time to let them think, try, and seek the final answer by themselves.

When children do things by themselves, their physical, intellectual and other qualities will be fully developed. During activities, children will have a sense of control over the environment, will develop self-confidence due to success, and stimulate children's interest in learning.

Let go properly and let children participate in the practice by themselves, which will help inspire children's thinking and activate children's thinking, creativity and imagination. Children's own experiences are more intuitive and useful than those taught by parents and teachers.
