Repetition, Repetition, Repetition

Learn, Repeat, Engage

I’m sure you already know that children learn through repetition, as do adults.

I’m sure you are also aware that children get bored easily and hate repetition.

Therein lies the problem. So what can you do about it?

Previously, I wrote a blog called “Learning can and should be fun!”

According to a world leading expert, who is both a teacher and neurologist, ‘fun’ activities underpin learning.

So, this is how to combine repetition with learning, whilst having fun.

Let’s say your child needs to learn their spelling words…

here a number of fun and interesting ways to engage them…

ask your child to write out their list in coloured pencils/crayons etc.,

and/or make their spelling words out of playdough or clay,

and/or have them skipping a rope and spelling them out a loud to you,

and/or take them cycling to the park and ask them to spell their words,

and/or take them to the beach and have them write their words out of sand,

and/or have them playing with a hula hoop and ask them to spell their words,

and/or have them jumping on a trampoline and ask them to spell their words.

I can go on and on, but I won’t. I think I have given you enough clues. Find out what your child likes doing and do it whilst incorporating their spelling lists. Make it fun, that way, it won’t seem so much of a chore!

If you have any clever ideas that have worked for you and your child, please feel free to share.
