All summer, my daughters and I learned poems by heart. I am very glad that we were not lazy, and over the summer we learned about 20 verses. I believe that poems perfectly train children’s memory, and this is necessary for schoolchildren.
Last year we had problems: after reading a few sentences, Yesenia could not retell what she read. She was lost, confused, forgot information. Therefore, I decided to devote more time to activities with children.
We taught poems about summer vacations, the sun and the river, butterflies and birds. And in early August, we began to teach poems about the school, about September 1. Like all children, my daughters are not too eager for lessons. They say that they missed the teacher, but they didn’t really care about their classmates. This is not surprising, because they all summer talking on the phone, and often met with some, because we live on the same street.
If a year ago, I still could tell my first-graders how much fun at school, now they are already aware of this issue and have their own opinion on what is happening. At school, control, homework, so they are not particularly bored about.
Still, I see lights in their eyes when it comes to school. This means that all is not lost 🙂
Dear readers, tell me if your children miss school?
