There is one learning style that is absolutely essential if young children are to learn effectively. Children demonstrate their love of this approach on a daily basis often to the accompaniment of hair being torn out by frustrated parents. Young children are hands on learners. Nothing is usually too hot or too heavy. This tactile approach to life in general is their way of discovering and processing information about the world around them. "Children are born true scientists. They spontaneously experiment and experience and re-experience again. They select, combine, and test, seeking to find order in their experiences - "which is the moistest? which is the least-est? They smell, taste, bite, and touch-test for hardness, softness, springiness, roughness, smoothness, coldness, warmness: they heft, shake, punch, squeeze, push, crush, rub, and try to pull things apart."
Young people today (as well as learners of all ages) are equipped with more tools for learning English than ever before. Back in the Eighties, learners relied upon private lessons, paper books, and language-learning tapes to improve their English language skills. Now there are many more opportunities online to hear authentic native speakers of English and to practice with activities like multiple-choice drills. Many of these activities are free while others cost a fee. Whereas learners in the past had to travel across the globe to practice authentic language in a real-world context, now learners utilize apps, text messaging, FaceTime, Skype, Google Hangouts, and more to practice their language skills. All one needs is a good Internet connection, a computer and an Android or iPad to get started.
Children need to be given lots of opportunity to write. The first word most kids will want to write is their own name. Parents can help by providing a good handwriting model for children to trace over at first, then later to copy. One way is to write the child has name using a light color then the child can trace over it with a darker color. Dotted letters are very effective for handwriting practice too. You can buy handwriting practice books but they will not be personalized for your child so you may want to consider getting a dotted font for your computer. Make sure you get the same style as your child is using at school to avoid making handwriting more complicated for them! It is easy to install a font on your computer and then you will be able to create name cards or type out a little story your child tells you. Once printed out the child can trace over the dotted letters.
