The first time in the first grade, or how to prepare a child for school

When a future first-grader grows up in a family, many mothers are more often concerned with questions that relate to the child's abilities and skills: what should he be able to do in the first grade, how does a six-year-old child differ from the seven-year old, at what age is it better to give the child to the first class and canprepare it for the school yourself?

Of course, the first class is a very difficult and responsible period for the whole family. It is very important to be ready for him not so much mentally as psychologically. After all, this is a completely different life, certain changes in the regime, relations with peers and activities.

Many parents want to send their children to all kinds of development schools, because they are absolutely sure that a first-year student must know the ABC, an account and, even better, some fundamentals of the English language before entering school. However, doctors and pedagogues agree that you should not run ahead of the locomotive. When a child knows much more than his classmates, he becomes bored in his lessons, especially in elementary school, when his intellect has practically no place to apply. You should know the extent of everything, including knowledge. The task of parents, first of all, is not to restrain the child if he is striving for more in-depth knowledge, or to instill a desire to learn and learn new things if you do not observe a special desire for learning. Ideal training for the future first-grader - 2 times a week 30-minute lesson in the form of a game.

Whether to give the child to school at six, only the parents decide. But in this case it should be remembered that the brain activity and motivation for training the six-year-old is significantly different from the seven-year-old child. As a rule, for a good result in studies, a six-year-old first-grader will have to do twice as much.

The main rule in preparing for school is the ease of class. Best of all, if they look like an exciting game, in which I would like to play as much as possible. Games for the preparation for school are available on virtually any developing site. Therefore, among all the diversity, give preference to those that develop in the child's logic, mindfulness, ability to count, read and write. For example, a great way to study the account are illustrative examples. You can count almost everything around: stairs, spoons, houses and trees. Also you can "collect" letters from any improvised materials: twigs, groats, pencils and so on. It is important that you yourself are interested in showing creativity, because visual aids are the best that you can offer a child at this age for high-quality preparation for school.

And, of course, watch the baby. If today he does not have the mood or desire to engage, do not force him. Classes should be fun, be productive and useful. Only then they will be mastered perfectly!
