Getting a kindergartener interested in homework, let alone science isn’t an easy task. At this age children want to play and have fun. The very concept of sitting around and investing a great deal of effort into something is alien to small kids. The situation gets even worse, because even after all these “trials” the child doesn’t get any tangible results right away. To a young kid this is a complete waste of time and forcing the issue will only see the child get defensive.
The idea of successful career may appeal to you from an adult point of view, but this isn’t something that can motivate a child. Therefore, if you want to get your kid interested in learning, homework, and science, you’ll need to use some special tricks.
Luckily, it’s not that hard to make science seem exciting to youngsters. There are plenty of simple but flashy experiments you can perform in your home that will look like real magic to your kids. You can even find some experiment cases available in children toy stores. These things were created for the very purpose of making kids fascinated with the possibilities of science.
Be sure to do some experiments at the very beginning of your kid’s study career. An initial positive impression will go a long way to developing your child’s interest in science.
Kids can hardly sit still for 10 minutes. If you force your little one to sit working on his or her assignments for extended periods of time, the child may develop a total aversion to studying in general. In order to make your homework session productive but not stressful, you need to take frequent breaks and do something interesting during them. For example, a few minutes of running around the house or any active game will help your child get another boost of energy that will be used when working with books several minutes later.
Your kid needs to want to work on homework, and setting up the perfect place for it will help with this. A child’s workspace needs to be decorated with brightly colored accessories, because young children react better when they are surrounded by vivid colors. There are plenty of children stationery options that are absolute joy to look at, so you can decorate this spot with things that are both pretty and practical. They won’t distract your child from the work that needs to be done.
