Incorporating movement and exercise into lessons is a great way to keep your child engaged while learning. Whether it be jumping jacks, dancing, cross crawls, or frog jumps, they all help increase the amount of oxygen to the brain which leads to better learning!
To have a student fully motivated in a lesson, they have to know you’re all in too. Sharing your enthusiasm with your child works wonders! Don’t be afraid to get silly as this will let them know you are excited to spend time and learn with them.
Make it Meaningful
Another tip to keep your child engaged is making lessons and activities meaningful. How? You can do this by relating the lesson back to real life experiences. Transforming their lessons into terms they will understand is important! Storytelling, mnemonic devices, and art are all awesome ways in which you can make lessons more familiar to them.
Sometimes the best way to engage a learner is by keeping the lessons relatively short. Attention spans can be limited and to help boost their stamina throughout the day, it will require short lessons and quick transitions. To have that constant movement and momentum will keep the child on their toes!
Providing immediate feedback is essential for a student’s success. This will promote self- reflection, increase comprehension, and help monitor progress along the way.
