Are you searching for new educational resources to use with your kids at home to support in their learning process? LearningMole is the right place for you if this support will fall into science, math, crafts or even cooking because Michelle helps with these four fields.
This video falls in the math category and it makes the process of knowing the numbers and knowing how to count much more easier and more interesting for the kids, why? Because Michelle uses play-doh and Lego to give the kids the motivation they need.
In this video Michelle is teaching Aaron to know how to count and she chose number "4" to let him do it. The duty on Aaron now is to use the play doh and the Lego part in order to count "4", this happens through using the Lego piece and stamping the play doh with it. This is one good and useful way for the kids because they should first know and identify the number you are holding for them and then let them show you how would they count - it showed to be a successful technique when used with Aaron.
What makes the process of learning much easier are those educational resources which the parents choose to support their kids in the homeschooling part of their learning, which also comes after those resources and teaching techniques and ways used by the teachers in the schools.
The kids at the very early age might be more attached to playing and that should let the teachers and parents pay attention to two important things: first of all, they should choose the toys and games which the kids will play with so that they could help with their thinking and let them exert some effort in doing so and second, they should try to use those games in the learning process when its time comes, which was exactly the same thing Michelle did in this lesson.
Lego is known to be one of the good toys to choose for the kids because it gives them the chance to think while trying to build something and this is the reason why Michelle motivated her son Aaron to do this counting and stamping thing with using both the Lego part and the play doh. The play doh is also another useful playing method because kids could also make shapes and build things out of it so they could also get the chance to think for a little bit.
