Fishing is not an activity that is loved by all and for many people this can be a cruel, painful sight to watch.
A Social Experience
While many people do enjoy to fish alone, when it comes to spending quality time with your children, there is nothing more pleasant than spending the day fishing at the dam. There is so much that you can share with your child on an outdoor fishing trip. There is wildlife in abundance to share information about, and birds that will amaze your child. Use the time as a learning experience, teach your child about the animals you encounter.
The first time fishing is always the most memorable. Allow your child to do everything himself/herself. Let them feel the texture of the bait between their fingers but, do help where the hook is involved. Give them the freedom to throw their line out, and encourage them on when they get that first nibble. Some people enjoy taking their kids fishing but that does not mean all children will enjoy this kind of experience. Give them valuable information on the fish that live in the area so that when they recall the story it is a detailed version.
Get To Know Your Child
The time spent outside alone, fishing, is the perfect opportunity to learn more about your child. The days are filled with work, and the stresses related to survival. Parents seldom take the time to really understand their children and experience the world through their eyes.
While an outdoor fishing excursion is a learning curve for most children and an experience that will be ingrained in their memories, you will be surprised what you learn from your children at the same time. There is nothing like the bonds formed in this way.
Outdoor play is a wonderful way to stimulate imagination, if you only take the time, and make the effort to show your children the possibilities.
Every area of your outdoor area has the possibility of being a new, exciting adventure, and each a different place to conquer. All it takes is an open mind and some creativity. There are so many nook, crannies, and tree stumps to explore.
Create a secret hideout among the tree branches, and view the world through an imaginary telescope. It doesn’t take much effort to slip into the shoes of a fairy king, ruling over his kingdom.
Each branch holds mysteries, to be unfolded if you only take the time to seek it out. A garden is a mystical place.
If you travel further afield and explore the natural parks, forests, and freely growing vegetation you are sure to uncover strange creatures you have only seen in books. Sit quietly among the brushes, and watch a wild deer as it fends for its young.
Step outside and take a peek, you may be amazed at the adventures that await you, and the learning experiences that await your children.
Boredom in children leads to restlessness, and in many cases tantrums, and naughtiness. Even while at home, it is important to keep your child stimula
Rainy day entertainment can be challenging to accomplish if you are struggling to understand your child’s unique learning style. Understanding your child’s learning style can help you find their focus and become successful in everyday life.
What Are the Different Learning Styles?
There are a variety of learning styles, but the primary seven are
What Do These Learning Types Mean for Your Child?
Visual: Your child is this type of learner if they prefer visual stimulation to grasp concepts and learn, such as images, diagrams, pictures, and colors. The colors will stand out in your child’s mind and help them remember specific aspects of what they are learning.
Physical: In previous times, fathers could purchase a raincoat for men and head outside to play with their kids in the rain and snow, and the child would be happier than ever. Physical or kinesthetic learners are those who learn by doing “hands-on” activities. Your child may use objects, draw or role-play, and enjoy outside activities to help them remember the things they are learning.
Verbal: Your child is an oral or auditory learner if they learn by reciting things out loud, or writing and highlighting notes. Your child may learn by writing rhymes or have a way with words.
Logical: If your child asks hundreds of questions on a daily basis, they are most likely a valid learner. Your child wants to know each detail of every situation and how things work. Logical learners are natural thinkers who learn different skills and information by using patterns and categorizing information.
Social: If your child prefers to learn in groups, they are social learners. Your child likes brainstorming and generating ideas within a team environment. Your child may thrive better by engaging in social activities rather than performing actions alone.
Solitary: Solitary learners are those who are independent and enjoy figuring things out on their own. Your child may perform well in a team or social setting, but learn much quicker when they can work on their own.
Aural: Aural learners enjoy using sound to help with the learning process. Your child may express themselves using music and sounds. These learners grasp a variety of concepts by hearing and listening to music and sounds. Your child may enjoy recording notes and looking at them numerous times to help them learn.
Discovering and understanding your child’s learning style and ability will help both you and your child communicate and learn in a way that results in success. Once you know how to help your child with their learning, you can help teachers understand your child’s unique style and have them incorporate this in their classroom.
Making sure that children keep active and happy is important for their mental, physical and social well being. There are plenty of activities that are worth trying out. This can be both indoors and outdoors. Most towns will have a nearby play park for kids […]
