For a parent, their world starts and ends with their children. We at Aparnaa World School make sure that their emotions are understood. All the poles, the gravity, nature, the seasons, the calamities reside within their child. But when a child sees the world through their eyes, their image, opinions, perspectives change. Parents can control what a child sees about “our world”, but they shouldn’t stop a child from seeing the world.   When a child swings for the first time, the thrill of soaring high in the air and then coming back down, the first time they hear the different sounds of the animals and birds, the first time they experience traveling, motion, and grasp the concept of time, these early life experiences help the child develop themselves wholesomely.   When we let our children study, observe, and experience nature, their mind expands and they push beyond horizons, as well as are more aware of the world and everything it contains.   Learning is a never-ending process and each experience teaches a child what to keep doing, what to not keep doing, and what new things can be implemented. The physical benefits to are noteworthy. Let your child see the expression of nature, and they will surprise you in ways you never thought.

reading_habits

Cultivating reading habits in kids has become really important these days. With the growing technology, parents are in a confusion of what to do.

Here are a few key points to help you with it.

Daily Reading Time

Allotting a specific time for reading can take the effort a long way.  This, in turn, develops a habit of reading in the children. After some time the kids will do it on their own. But, at the start, you have to sit with them. This will help a lot to get reading habits in kids.

Create a Reading Space

A proper place for reading is really worth it. This will help the child to concentrate on the book. Helping them to understand the subject in more depth. Although a quiet room with some books & a study table will help.

Reading to Children

At the start, children will not be attentive in reading. So, you have to read some books with them. Let them feel & enjoy the writer’s thoughts. This will help a lot in cultivating reading habits in kids.

Trips to Libraries

Sitting & reading at a library is a beautiful experience. Kids should get to feel that. So take them to libraries. Let them sit down and read something. With them, you can read something too.

Reading Freedom

The children should be able to read whatever they feel like. It’s a big no-no to tell them what to read. This in turn will discourage them from reading. So, it’s a must to develop good reading habits in children.

Make the kids relate

Now reading a lot & not relating to any of it won’t help. Make the children relate to the writer’s thoughts. Show them the thoughts in day to day life. This will make them interested in reading more & living it.

Importance of Education (How to Teach Children)

By | Blog, cbse, education, News & Events, School | No Comments

Teaching the importance of education to the children is really necessary. They should realize the importance of education. We can do that in many ways, the following being the important ones.

Practicals

Practicals are an important part of life. A practical session of any subject can make the importance of the subject clear. So, ask them to use their education in solving day to day problems. Like you can ask them to help you out in calculations, teaching them the importance of mathematics. Similarly, doing small experiments in houses can trigger their interest in science. Also, asking them quizzes on different topics can be of help.

Reading

Reading is a way to gain information from throughout the world. There are millions of books with billions of ideas in them. One can ask children to inculcate the habit of reading. This, in turn, will increase their concentration and understand of the knowledge given in the books. Only asking the child to read something won’t help. We have to first start reading for them then slowly transition them to reading themselves.

Writing

Writing is a way of expression. Children should be practicing it more often. Teach them calligraphy to generate their interest. Once they are interested in the topic ask them to write their thoughts, poems, essays, etc. This will help them process their thoughts better and express it in words.

Travel Better

We can be entertained in malls, theatres, cafes, etc. But, ideally, they are not the best places for the child to visit. Instead of that, you could plan to take the child out for trips to science parks, museums, planetarium, etc., that will generate their interest in their studies.
