When we teach children or students, two things will happen:
Whether they will be interested..
.. or they don’t concentrate at all.
Actually, one of the methods to teach children to learn effectively is to use the learning cycle .
Research1prove that this technique is an effective method of teaching.
In this method, there are four steps:
method of teaching young children
1. Attract attention
The first step is to signal the child to be ready to learn.
This is necessary because we have to draw their attention to what we want to teach
Without attention and focus, they will not focus on what is being taught.
Therefore, get the child’s attention first Database by showing them something related to what he will learn later.
If she’s going to be learning about moths that day, then a book or pictures about moths would probably be good material.
You can also show and explain about the materials that your child will use.
For example; if he is going to learn about angles, show him a protractor and explain to him what it is and how to use it.
Another way is to give your child an object to play with.
If you want to teach him about shapes, then let him play with block games like lego.
When he is done playing, you can go to the next step which is teaching.
Once you get their attention, then you can give instructions by explaining the task to be given.
Your student needs to understand what you want him to learn or do.
Give a clear explanation.
Instead of telling in a directive style tone it is better to explain and show a demo if necessary
Remember, if the students are not focused on News US what you are teaching, then stop
There is no point in continuing the lesson if the students are no longer interested because we no longer have their attention.
So try to keep their focus as long as possible.
3. Implementation process
After giving instructions to the students, give them time to implement.
In this phase, you can give encouragement such as words of encouragement ” Ayuh Fakrul! You can do! ”
When they ask questions or make comments, don’t ignore them. Give the appropriate response .
Studies show that when we respond to students’ or children’s questions, it will help them to learn.
