Helping Young Children with Handwriting

There are various aspects to handwriting which need to be considered when we think of improving it. This question usually arises in the mid-junior years so that is the stage of development that I shall concentrate on, listing each point and the things to look out for.

Pencil Grip

Do check how your child is holding the pencil and encourage a grip which is both comfortable and allows proper control of the pencil. Some children press very hard when they write which is tiring and hard work, resulting sometimes in handwriting which deteriorates as more is written. They need to be encouraged to relax their grip more.

Holding the Paper

This may seem silly but there are children who don’t keep the paper or book in place with the non-writing hand with the obvious result that the paper or book moves and the child’s writing suffers each time.

Letter Formation

Forming the individual letters correctly is crucial to good handwriting so check to see if this is the problem with your child. The best way is to ask her or him to copy out a sentence which contains all the letters of the alphabet while you watch closely. Here are two example sentences to choose from :

Reading Schemes And Materials For Home Reading

Are Reading Schemes And Materials For Home Use A Good Idea ?

Well…The short answer to this is: both Yes. . . and No .

They are not a good idea if they lead to any kind of pressure being put on a child to learn to read. Making a reluctant child work at home in order to accelerate progress is only likely to lead to rebellion at some later stage. They are a good idea if the materials are :

  • – bright and exciting ;
  • – written by someone who really does know their business and who understands what is happening in schools ;
  • – genuinely appealing to children ;
  • – likely to provide you with some support in helping your child to learn.

Student Success and Literacy

Without basic literacy, it is nearly impossible to ensure that students get the best outcomes in their academic careers. The literacy skills that they started learning in kindergarten will have an influence on their ability to deliver the right kind of progress in the classroom. Without these skills the children are liable to drop out and they are not as successful as their abilities might indicate.

Education Smart Care Center is helping in such way of preparing the background for the children, so that they are prepared when the time comes to challenge the highest echelons of the education system. This is not something that is that easy to achieve. However the participation of major stakeholders has made a difference in terms of raising awareness about the need to improve literacy skills in young children.

Looking for the evidence of early success

Early Literacy and Childhood Poverty

Childhood Literacy

Far too often there is a link between childhood illiteracy and childhood poverty. Parents that have limited means will find that their priorities are skewed towards basic needs instead of some of the other nuanced concepts which make the life whole. Of course we cannot forget the fundamental need to keep the child fed and clothed.

Nevertheless the literacy level that they have will have an impact on their life chances. It will determine the types of citizens that they will make and their overall place in society. The consequences of failing to address the literacy needs of the kids might lead them to a situation whereby they are chasing the failed trails of the difficult processes within the context of the struggle for resources. Happily Educational Smart Care Center is doing its bit in order to promote childhood literacy.

Education must never become the preserve of the rich people

Appropriate Educational Opportunities

The Educational Smart Care have placed an emphasis on the need to control the educational outcomes of school children with a specific emphasis on the development of strategies. These strategies take into consideration the age and the needs of the child. Therefore all the activities which are agreed as part of the program are put through a very stringent process where justification has to be found for all the issues that are being presented to parents and the other stakeholders. This approach effectively ensures that children are never doing too much.

There is encouragement for those establishments that are committed to child welfare and the ability to increase the opportunities for those young people within the program. It also means that parents are reassured about the aims and protocols of the system.

Assessing the curriculum in a new light

A Charitable Educational Experience

Educational Smart Care Center has been able to create structures that are based on a friendly atmosphere and a charitable ethos. This is a noble initiative and it seems to have the support of the general community. It also handles many of the serious issues that affect children at this stage of their lives. Research has shown that the things that happen to children when they are three years of age will have a profound effect on how they grow up as adults. It will also have an influence on the way that they perceive the community. If the spirit of volunteerism has already been planted in those children, then it is relatively simply for those values to follow them into adulthood.

Understanding the needs of children

Reach Out and Read

Reach Out and Read

The Reach Out and Read program is one of the proudest contributions that are made by Education Smart Care Center. This is a scheme that is designed to encourage children into the habit of reading with the help of their parents. It has been particularly successful in changing the face of the educational system for the better. For example it tackles the issues of literacy at the community level so that parents are supported by all the people that are within the community. That is an achievement that is worth fighting for.

There are different perspectives on the various schemes that have been implemented in an effort to raise the level of functional literacy within the community. Many of these initiatives can be justified by the wonderful results that they have been able to bring to the table so far. The end result is that the various elements of the community are effectively supported in the initiatives to improve literacy across the different levels.

Working through some of the demanding aspects of the program

Educational Approach – Partnership for Education

Education Smart Care Center have been very effective at building partnerships for the purpose of improving the literacy levels in different schools as well as raising the general awareness about the importance of improving literacy across the different social or economic classes. One of the groups of professionals that have been involved in this scheme is in the medical world. Doctors and associated professionals have worked to support the various projects that are proposed by these schools.

The Reach Out and Read is one of the proud moments in the history of educational achievement in the country. The projects start off at local level and then develop according to the needs of the community as well as the specific circumstances in which the students are placed. It has the power of adding value to the community and creating solutions that foster independence and innovation within the community.

An Evidence-Based Approach to Education

Clarifying the Motivations of Teachers

At the Educational Smart Care Center, there is an emphasis on the things that work for both parents and school children. Teachers are asked to clarify their personal goals when they decide to join the institution. These are the things that define them as effective custodians of the education that we impart to young people. Indirectly they are involved in the creation and development of the future leaders. The experiences that they bring throughout their careers can also be crystallized in the attitudes that they have to the task ahead and their ability to deliver on the expectations of parents. The teacher is asked to define their understanding of the educational system as it bears fruit for young children. Of course the individuality of the teachers is at play but at the same time, they are part of a community project.

Individual efforts pay off in group results
