For children with poor foundation in the first grade, they have many difficulties in learning. Due to the accelerated pace of school teaching, they may have a harder time keeping up with their teachers than other students. This can cause frustration for children, which can affect their motivation and interest in learning in the future. So, as parents or guardians, what measures can we take to help these children with poor foundation?
First, strengthen basic courses. “The foundation is weak and the ground is shaking.”. Basic subject knowledge is the foundation of subsequent learning and cannot be ignored. Parents or guardians can help children firmly lay a good foundation in trivial learning, such as encouraging them to read more, do more questions, and write more. By reviewing basic knowledge, children can more easily keep up with the progress of school, thereby improving their academic performance and sense of self actualization.
Secondly, adopt diversified educational methods. Most first-year children are still in a young state, and at this time, their stable mentality and positive emotional tolerance are higher than their scores in any subject. Parents and guardians can adopt various educational methods, such as games, music, painting, handicrafts, etc., to make children feel more interesting and enjoyable. In this situation, children may be more willing to learn and follow up, enhancing their interest in learning.
Third, communicate with teachers. Teachers play a crucial role in children’s learning. Therefore, parents or guardians need to communicate closely with teachers to find suitable learning methods for their children. Teachers will design different teaching strategies for different situations of children, such as using multiple educational methods to help children achieve better learning outcomes, and provide suggestions on how to cultivate their learning styles and methods.
Fourth, give children full support and encouragement. In the process of children’s learning, no matter what challenges they encounter, we should give them full support and encouragement. For example, when a child feels frustrated due to poor grades, parents can help him find the root cause of the problem and seek solutions. We can encourage children to constantly try and believe in their abilities, thereby enhancing their self-confidence and maintaining a positive and enterprising attitude.
Finally, timely help children adjust their mindset. In the process of children’s learning, emotional experience is also crucial. If a child exhibits negative emotions such as anxiety, worry, and depression, we should provide timely comfort and support to the child and guide them to adjust their mindset in a timely manner. It can encourage children to actively participate in activities, exercise, etc., so that their negative emotions can be vented and alleviated, thereby better addressing learning challenges.
In short, children with poor foundation need to take certain measures to adjust their learning methods and mentality to help them overcome learning obstacles. This requires not only the support and companionship of parents and guardians, but also the patient guidance and trust of teachers. Helping children rediscover the joy of learning and master learning methods is a necessary condition to help them prepare for the future.
