Ways to improve your child's development

Every single child learns differently. On the first attempt, some can understand simple concepts, while others take more time. No matter how your child learns, you should guide them in the correct direction. Here are eight ways to improve the growth of your child:

·  Reading offers a great way to help your child academically excel. Making a collaborative time for reading time, letting them read a page here and there. You do not have to reserve time right before bed for reading. You can turn a rainy Saturday into a day of reading or take your child on a sunny day to the park with a backpack full of books and snacks. You can make use of this time by combining an additional activity of cycling. Your child can use a kids cycle to ride to the park.

·  Your child's teacher sees them in a regulated, instructional setting five days a week. If anyone can help you improve the ability of your kids, it is their teacher. Ask their teacher for suggestions that they can do at home for learning activities that specifically appeal to your child.

· Practice makes better, and even for your little ones, this saying rings true. If they practice writing their alphabet, sounding out letters or phrases, or even attempting to memorize their phone numbers, it will help them improve those skills faster by practicing them at home on nights and weekends, which will ensure that they keep up with the rest of the class as they progress through the curriculum.

·Before school, your child needs to eat a nutritious breakfast so they can feel great and concentrate on learning. And at such a young age, your little one wants all the energy they can get in the day for playing time. Be sure that instead of packaged options full of preservatives, the lunch you have packed includes fresh foods.

· If your child does not get enough sleep, they will not concentrate on academics as much. Ensure that by going to bed at a decent time and waking up after 8-9 hours, your child gets a good night's sleep to avoid exhaustion in the morning.

· If your child dislikes doing tasks that have been sent home with them, find a way to make it enjoyable by doing it together. Do the same assignment and chat about how much you enjoy the process, instead of making them colour on their own or having them trace their alphabet solo. It is going to get your child excited about doing it on their own.

· Community sports such as t-ball and dance, as well as solo events such as art classes for swimming lessons, are extracurricular activities that teach your children the advantages of teamwork and allow them to explore their creativity. Besides, they also help your child keep fit and burn off any extra energy they may have so that when they get home, they can concentrate on learning. Just keep in mind to buy the right sports accessories as per the requirements of your child.
