The most important time of learning for young children is preschool. Basic academic concepts such as numbers, alphabets and colors are learned at preschool. Learning about interaction with others and being a part of group are also a part of preschool teaching. A preschool teacher can use many ideas to make the children learn easily.
Using different educational dvds for kids, make it more interesting. They make them attractive to learn something through a preschool video. As the alphabets, numbers and some names of animals are shown with sound and animation, they get interested to imitate and learn them. This way of learning also improves the memory skills of children.
Use of certain themes get stuck into the child’s mind. Some themes such as favorites of the kid, an animal, water, circus, or a holiday can be used. Incorporation of different areas of a theme helps in increasing the child’s interest.
At schools, children are made to sit in a classroom and listen to the lessons. But in a preschool, children are not allowed to sit at one place. Many playing activities can be included in a preschool. For example, counting can be learned by counting the number of beads in a necklace. Many such plays can be created by a preschool teacher.
The teachers can also use certain songs for teaching in preschool. Colors, alphabets and counting numbers through various songs creates interest and activeness among children. Children are more accustomed to listen to music and grasp it. Fine and gross motor development of a child can be seen by combining a song with a dance and finger play.
Creation of activity centers is also a good idea for preschool teaching. Different skills can be used for making up an activity center in a classroom. For example, a dramatic play center having certain costumes and properties enhances the joy and fun of children while learning.
