Ugh, bad behavior in classrooms!
Disruptive behavior in classrooms is a common problem in various regions beginning with kindergarten. This information highlights a profound fact: appreciation for education begins in the home. According to brain research, many children struggle with academic and social skills in school because critical pathways in the brain were not formed during the first three years of life. And language development is needed to strengthen the process of this formation. There are some things that parents can do to ensure the success of their children.
Parents can read stories to their children with interesting characters, beautiful settings, and exciting plots. With this face-to-face time, children will hear the inflection of the voice and observe the facial expressions with each emotion the story presents. They will learn early to make the necessary literary connections. Plus, you can help your child learn to make those necessary literary connections simply by asking questions about the story during and after reading. Who or what was the story about? Who were the main characters? Was there a problem and, if so, what was it? How was the problem resolved? When, where and why did the main event occur? Keep your child focused on the five W’s and H’s, and her understanding will skyrocket.
Parents can read rhyming poems that encourage language expression and develop multi-phonemic listening skills necessary for mental manipulation of word construction. After reading two lines, ask your child for the two words that rhyme. When this practice is done often, your child should be able to tell you which words rhyme.
Play language games
Language games at this early age will introduce children to letter knowledge and teach them to manipulate beginnings, rhymes, and the beginning and ending combinations needed to create multiple words. Filling your child’s world with language development opportunities from ages 0-3 will ensure proper brain cell development and multiply their chances of success in the classroom.
What is myelin?
In conclusion, it hurt me when a guest speaker in a kindergarten classroom asked a student (who had no behavior control) if his mom hugged him. He frowned, shook his head, and said, “Only when she was a baby when she bottle-fed me.” We can see that this child is associating a loving hug with being held for food and he has no other recollection of receiving a hug. Affection is essential to human maturity. Hugging and massaging your baby creates the fatty material, myelin according to Perles (2014). “[Myelin] it coats brain cells and speeds up electrical impulses that cause them to function more effectively than neurons that aren’t covered in myelin.” Caring Moms, Dads, and Guardians: Affection, Reading, and Word Play Introduced at This Early Age they will prepare your child for school before school.
My twelve year old still looks forward to bedtime stories. She is in the top 25% of her class and is reading at the high school, if not early college level.
