Help Your Child Be Healthy And Fit
With Activities For Children Aged 4 to 11: For children, being and staying physically fit can happen with activities they refer to as PLAY! When play is organized into specific movements, it becomes exercise. For exercise to become part of each day, these movements or activities should meet the interests and needs of your child. Play is the beginning. Children can follow their own paths to lifetime fitness by exercising for fun and at their own pace.
One example: Smile If You Like Me
Make a game out of introducing your child to new foods.
What you'll need
Felt tip pen
New foods for your child to sample
What to do
- Cut paper into three 3"x 3" squares.
- On each piece of paper, trace around the bottom of a round object with a felt tip pen.
- Have your child draw three different kinds of faces in the circles: a face with a smile, an unhappy face, and a face with a straight line for a mouth to show "I don't care".
- Ask your child to try a new or different food. Emphasize that not all the portion has to be eaten: simply try the food and talk about likes and dislikes.
- Tell your child to give you one of the faces that reflects the feeling about the new food.
- Post a chart to record new foods your child tries.
- Set a goal, such as trying one new food a week.
- Reward your child for trying the foods by writing "Good job!" on the chart, putting stickers on the chart, or celebrating by taking a trip to the local zoo or library when the chart is complete.
This activity gives your child a chance to enjoy and learn about a variety of foods without the pressure of having to "clean your plate" at mealtime. One point to remember when doing this activity is to try not to use food as a reward or bribe.
Help Your Child To Get Ready For School
With Activities For Children From Birth Through Age 5: The activities in this section are simple and are designed to prepare children for school. Most of them grow out of the routine things parents do everyday. The activities are meant to be fun. Be enthusiastic and avoid lecturing to pre-school children on what they are learning. If your child enjoys the activity, his excitement for learning will increase.
Help Your Child To Learn Geography
With Activities For Children: Most of the suggestions in this book are geared to children under 10 years of age. The activities and games are organized around five specific themes that help focus our thinking.
- Where are things located?
- What makes a place special?
- What are the relationships among people and places?
- What are the patterns of movement of people, products, and information?
- How can the Earth be divided into regions for study?
Help Your Child To Learn History
With Activities For Children Aged 4 To 11: We have intentions of good fun as we plan any activity with our children. We also want them to learn something from most activities. They probably would say they want to have fun and learn something new too. But sometimes the difference in abilities between us and them, or the demands of time, end up leaving us disappointed. Keeping the following in mind can help keep your time together fun and productive: You don't have to know all the facts or fully understand history to help your children learn. Your willingness to learn with them-to read, to ask questions, to search, and to make mistakes-is the most important gift you can bring to the process. By viewing their mistakes as sources of information for future efforts, your children gain confidence to continue learning.
Help Your Child To Learn Math
With Activities For Children Aged 5 To 13: Math is everywhere and yet, we may not recognize it because it doesn't look like the math we did in school. Math in the world around us sometimes seems invisible. But math is present in our world all the time-in the workplace, in our homes, and in life in general.
Math in the home - This section provides the opportunity to use games and activities at home to explore math with your child. The activities are intended to be fun and inviting, using household items.
One example: More or Less
Playing cards is a fun way for children to use numbers.
What you'll need
2 packs of cards
Paper to keep score
What to do
- Flip a coin to tell if the winner of this game will be the person with "more" (a greater value card) or "less" (a smaller value card).
- Remove all court cards (jacks, queens, and kings) and divide the remaining cards in the stack between the two players.
- Place the cards face down. Each player turns over one card and compares: Is mine more or less? How many more? How many less?
This game for young children encourages number sense and helps them learn about the
relationships of numbers (more or less) and about adding and subtracting. By counting the
shapes on the cards and looking at the printed numbers on the card, they can learn to relate the number of objects to the numeral.
Help Your Child To Learn Read
With Activities For Children From Infancy Through Age 10: You don't need to be an especially skillful reader yourself to help your child. Nor do you have to devote great amounts of time to reading with your child. It's the quality of time that counts. Helping your child become a reader is an adventure you will not want to miss. The benefits to your child are immeasurable, and in the process you will find your world becoming richer as well.
Help Your Child To Succeed At School
With Activities For Children Aged 5 To 11: How do you feel about your years in school? If you have happy memories, chances are you can help your children be excited about learning and have good memories, too. If you disliked school, it's harder, but you can do lots of things to help make school a better experience for your children than it was for you. The good news is that every child in every family has the power to succeed in school and in life, and every parent, grandparent, and care-giver can help.
Activities - There is no one "right" way of doing these activities. Make changes, shorten or lengthen them to suit your child's attention span, or think up some activities of your own. Above all, enjoy them. And don't worry about what you might not have done in the past. Start where you are now, with the resources you have now.
One example: Listen!
This game helps teach how to listen carefully and follow directions, two things that are important in school.
What you'll need
Any small object you can hide
Objects that make noise
What to do
- Hide a small object. Give directions to find it such as, "Take five steps ahead. Turn right. Keep the lamp to your left. Bend down and look to the right." Take turns doing this.
- All but one person close their eyes. The person with his or her eyes open makes a sound (such as keys jangling, hands clapping, a bell ringing, a spoon tapping against a glass). Everyone else tries to guess what is making the sound.
- Clap your hands to tap out a rhythm. Have another player listen and then clap that same rhythm back to you. Do it different ways: slow, fast, loud, soft. Make the rhythms harder as it gets easier to repeat them.
- When taking a walk, or any place where you can stop for a few minutes, sit quietly for 30 seconds with your eyes closed, then tell each other what you heard: a baby crying, an aero plane, a bird singing.
- Take a walk. One of you tell the other person what to do-cross the street, turn left, look down. Take turns following each other's directions.
Through practice, children can learn to listen carefully, see and hear details, and follow directions.
