Children’s literacy is a very fundamental part of learning and is related to their overall learning and self-development in the future, so it should be taken seriously. However, many parents or teachers may encounter a problem: Children can’t remember to read. What should we do?
1、 Creating a good learning environment
Recognizing words requires a certain amount of accumulation and precipitation over time, creating a good learning environment for children and helping them actively recognize words. Firstly, it is necessary to reduce things that may interfere with children, such as television and mobile phones, so that children can concentrate on their studies. You can also prepare some tools for recognizing characters, such as character cards, reading materials, etc., so that children can gradually understand new characters while constantly deepening their understanding of old characters.
2、 Choose educational methods that are suitable for your child
Due to the different receptivity and characteristics of each child, parents should choose appropriate educational methods based on their child’s characteristics. For example, if some children are more dynamic and enjoy playing, they can buy toys with pinyin and characters to deepen their understanding of new characters during play. Some children are more rational and want to understand the meaning of words and the story behind them. They can try using stories, books, and history courses to stimulate their interest and memory.
3、 Train children’s attention and memory
Attention and memory are very important for children to recognize characters, and we can use various ways to help children train their attention and memory. For example, it can be easier for children to remember glyphs, pinyin, and meanings deep in their brains by playing games that specifically train their attention and memory, or by stimulating their brain’s memory areas through animated music.
4、 Strengthen home school communication
Communication between parents and teachers is a key factor in improving children’s learning abilities. During the process of child recognition, parents should communicate with the teacher in a timely manner, reporting on the child’s progress and performance, so that the teacher can understand the child’s status in a timely manner, and provide timely assistance and guidance. Teachers can also provide targeted teaching methods based on children’s recognition of Chinese characters, so that children can learn to read and write Chinese characters faster.
5、 Encourage children to explore themselves
It is also very important for children to explore their abilities and talents. In the process of children learning to recognize Chinese characters, parents can use encouragement and guidance to let children try to recognize Chinese characters themselves, which helps them discover and explore themselves, and complete learning tasks more confidently and independently.
6、 Patiently accompany children’s growth
In the process of children learning to recognize characters, parents need to be patient with and support, which is very important for children’s growth. Parents should not place too high demands on their children. It is important to make their children learn as a habit and actively and effectively guide them to truly master Chinese characters, so that they can achieve their goal of recognizing Chinese characters.
In short, child recognition is a difficult process that requires parental companionship and teacher guidance. Whether a child’s literacy ability is strong or not is also slightly related to the educational methods of parents and teachers. Parents and teachers should flexibly choose appropriate educational methods for their children to help them better learn to read.
