If your child is old enough to attend school then apart from getting your child admitted in the best school it is your duty to help the child develop some learning skills. Helping your child develop learning skills can make it easier for them, to grasp things when they are at school. Here are some of the ways in which you can help preschoolers develop those learning skills.
You should start with the foundational skills like learning how to identify numbers, letters and colors. When you are teaching them how to identify letters also make them learn the sound of each letter. It is better to relate all the letters with some object so that it is easy for your kid to identify the letter.
If your children are inquisitive then answer their questions. The more they question the sooner they'll pick up, because they will start relating to the logic. Kids love pictures, get your children some image books and teach them through these images. You can also take the help of songs and make them learn to identify different things that are included in their daily activities and lives.
Make up stories or read out stories from some colorful books. This will increase their interest in knowing more and reading on their own. You can teach them rhymes by signing and repeating them every now and then so that it is easier for the kids to memorize them.
When you kid goes to school he/ she is expected to know the basics so, make short games and indulge in fun activities with your children so that learning becomes easy for them. However, you should not force your children into learning something when they are not in a mood. Give them time and let them enjoy what they are doing; make them learn new things gradually and be patient.
