We have grown to the age when they began to give us homework. It is to us, because personally to my son, no matter how much I ask him, they ask nothing in kindergarten. They are there, according to my child, only eat, sleep and play.
Mom also has to join the learning process
On the amount of funds deposited in the office, I modestly keep silent. And then came the weekend. I was given three notebooks in the garden. The two most unpretentious – 12 leaves in a cell and in a line. But the third, probably not for nothing, was worth $ 5. This notebook looks more like an album. Large, voluminous, with a variety of tasks, drawings and advice to parents.
My son doesn’t like to study very much, but her teachers praise him. In one voice they say that he is responsible, purposeful and very obedient. Probably, I bring another child to the garden, or I am not taking my son from the garden. For at home to make something do almost impossible.
Here, for example, we sat down for this notebook with tasks. First, I am shocked by the rampant fantasy of its compilers. Secondly, probably, I am accustomed to the Ukrainian language, as I come across it, and I take a great interest in the works of modern Ukrainian writers. It is interesting, but what are parents who all their conscious life communicate in Russian?
Anyway. Not the point. Exercises in the book, to put it mildly, strange. And short poems completely without rhyme (about the meaning, I am silent). Now my son and I are at the stage of memorizing vowels. Passed A, Oh, and today overpowered W. Fortunately, I don’t tell him practically anything new – we fix what they learned in the garden.
But this weekend added another task. In those two thin notebooks you need to register the lines, dots, shade the figure with lines. You probably remember these exercises since high school. I remembered my childhood, and the child, inspired by my efforts, also began to display these endless sticks.
I don’t know, maybe I’m wrong, but at this stage of the training I limit myself to just showing and then watching the performance. And this applies exclusively to assignments. I do not mention how to hold the pencil correctly. First, the son is not comfortable is the most correct. And secondly, he is not yet sure in which hand he is more comfortable (his father is left-handed).
And among other things, the son manages to do what has been said and, at the same time, talk about everything in a row, ask a bunch of questions not on the subject of the lesson and disperse his attention to the whole world, from the picture on the next page to the forgotten toy in the room.
Yes, about the place of employment. It so happened that the most visited and habitable place in the apartment is the kitchen. The son does not want to study in the room, constantly focusing on the fact that as soon as he finishes, I will allow him to watch TV. What is the study here?
So we go out into the kitchen, and I hang over it and can’t leave for a second.
And it also happens that this little hilarious person deliberately does something wrong, so that I can help, show again, and thereby reduce his work.
How to deal with these tricks? How to make the child concentrate and not bend the stick. He already learns through force and constantly spinning (the awl in the priest not only goes nowhere over the years, but also, in my opinion, it becomes more and more), and if I urge and force him, he will hate and avoid the process in every way learning.
