It is unavoidably difficult for children entering elementary school to adjust quickly to elementary school life.
Parents’ timely guidance is especially important at this stage, in addition to the efforts of school teachers!
After all, the difference between kindergarten and elementary school is that kindergarten is primarily a nursery, where children are not under pressure and will be exposed to some knowledge learning; elementary school is intended to master the learning method, where knowledge acquisition is the primary focus, and where children will be subjected to some pressure.
Parents should communicate with their children on a daily basis in order to better guide them and assist them in performing well in a variety of learning-related activities.
Learning environment at home
a formalized After the child attends school, the family is one of the most important places for the child to learn, so preparing the home learning environment is critical.
c Make a small study space for your child, either in a corner of the room or in a separate room, with an emphasis on quietness and cleanliness.
d Choose a good lamp for the child: a soft incandescent lamp, 15-25 watts, with light on the left side and adjustable lamps are ideal.
e the assembly of learning aids: a schoolbag, a stationery box, a straightedge, an angle ruler, a small 2B pencil eraser, and a few automatic pencil sharpeners
a Proper writing actions, writing numbers, writing their names, or writing simpler words; not allowing young children to write much because their hand muscles have not fully developed.
Capability to learn
a formalized Recognize clocks and watches to find out what time it is.
c Recognize page numbers and have the ability to turn pages to find question numbers
d Recognize the class schedule, language, mathematics, English, art, music, personality, physical education, science, and music.
e Literacy in everyday life: solitary words that are commonly used, such as (4) class, male and female toilets, and so on.
Formation of Habits
a formalized Respect the work and rest time reasonable arrangement of time and the child up to buy the favorite alarm clock, training the child to go to bed and wake up on time meals learning labor and games
c After the child has mastered the concept of time, he or she can control the rhythm of his or her actions in order to avoid being late.
d Create opportunities for children to arrange their own time control, within the limits of the rules; for example, if the child completed the task early, the rest of the time is free for the child to arrange.
e Provide a special place for children to organize and store their belongings in order to care for books.
e.Item management, such as encouraging children to clean up their rooms
e Chores help parents organize their own little world and assist them with chores that they can do.
What should parents and children do before sending their children to school?
Instead of doing anything special to prepare their children for school, parents should start with them: pay attention to their physical fitness, get more sunlight, play in the field, eat well, and be in good health.
Keeping an eye on things, developing the habit of good listening, fitting in, and reasoning, and so on. All of these things are especially important for children who have these characteristics and are adjusting to elementary school life.
How to Support Your Child’s Relationship with the Teacher
(1) Pay attention to what your child has to say.
Your child will want to tell you about everything that happens at school with his or her classmates, big and small.
At this time, you should pay close attention to your child’s school life because this is the best way to understand your child’s school life. You should share good news or interesting things with your child so that your child feels the joy of school life, thus deepening the sense of closeness with the teacher.
(2) Increase communication with teachers.
However, due to time and space constraints, schools and families frequently disagree on how to educate children, making adaptation difficult for children.
Here, you must communicate more with the teacher and discuss educational philosophy with him or her.
If there is any doubt about the teacher’s approach, it can be raised openly and discussed in order to reach an agreement. Parents should not be concerned about how this issue will be handled, as this is likely to lead to misunderstandings and be counterproductive.
(3) Avoid getting too close to the teacher.
Many parents want to improve their relationship with teachers by giving them gifts and hosting dinners in order to get special attention from teachers for their children. Although the parents’ feelings are understandable, such practices are not acceptable.
What should I do if my child is having a disagreement with a classmate?
1 Determine the cause, then allow the child to resolve the conflict on their own.
If there is a disagreement between children, parents should first listen to their children explain why the disagreement exists.
Once you know the truth, your mother can assist your children in correctly understanding the reasons for their conflict, particularly their respective problems. Then, allow the children to come up with their own solutions to the conflict.
The mother should use more “What’s your best idea?” and “What do you think you should do?” questions during this process so that the child feels he or she has the right and responsibility to think about how to solve his or her own problems.
Parents should not try to protect their own children or take on all of their children’s problems; otherwise, they will deprive their children of the opportunity to practice interpersonal skills.
2 Assist your child in changing his or her mind and getting rid of the self-centered concept.
Children think in their own self-interest, which is a major cause of conflict, and this phenomenon is very common in today’s children.
As a parent, you should encourage your child to abandon the self-centered mindset and learn to think from the perspective of others.
Parents, for example, can encourage their children to consider the following questions: “If I were him, what would I do?” “What might he want me to do?” “What solution would be acceptable to both of us?”
3 Teach your child how to use gentle words to resolve conflicts.
When conflicts arise between children and classmates, parents should teach their children to apologize and ask for forgiveness, as well as to use appropriate language calmly to resolve interpersonal conflicts.
“It’s my fault, can you forgive me?” “It saddens me that you talk like that, it’s not right to curse, can we talk quietly?”
4 Instill in your child the necessary social skills.
Learn to genuinely care for your classmates and express yourself truthfully; pay attention to the manner in which praise and criticism are delivered.
When criticizing others’ flaws, we should be subtle and euphemistic, not exaggerated, not to embarrass others, while praising others, we should be sincere and realistic; when discussing issues with others, we should pay attention to humility, do not be a good teacher, do not move to lecture others; to learn to listen
Patience and listening to the heart will make people understand, while looking around, distracted, not waiting for others to finish speaking on the interruption, or even he said his you do your, it makes people feel like “talk is not a good idea.”
The development of ability and habits ensures a smooth transition.
1 Develop the concept of time.
A lower elementary school requires 7:55 minutes before school, while the upper grade requires 7:40; B the first 20 minutes of the course are important teaching content, taking into account the child’s concentration; the latter time will not arrange important points of knowledge; C recess minutes (their own play, the teacher will not watch); require first to do the next class ready to go to the toilet, drink water, do this before going out to play; D develop the habit of doing homewor Make it a habit to clean up the table before doing homework; only leave the alarm clock and lamp on the table; do not place other books, toys, water, or other items there. Before doing homework, go to the toilet and drink plenty of water; once done, you are not allowed to interrupt, go to drink water, go to the toilet, and do it all in one breath; E homework check: parents primarily check whether the homework is completed in full (you can prepare a small book for the child to record the homework assigned, go home at night item by item control check, done to tick), check the quality, there are no missing or incorrect questions, and the homework is complete. The first step is to go to bed on time, preferably at 8:30 a.m. You can play later in the week and sleep in on Sunday. Typically, homework completed can allow the child to watch minutes of television or news; however, this cannot be a series, as the child will become addicted, and must be unrelated.
2 development of learning task awareness Parents can check their children’s homework twice a week, and if the children have mastered it, they may not check it every day, but they should be aware that phonics is taught in 6-8 weeks, and progress is not controlled by the school or teachers, but is arranged by the Education Bureau. It is recommended that students learn some phonics before starting school in order to develop a sense of language.
3 Self-protection training When no one arrives to pick up the child, the teacher may bring it to class at first, but if the teacher is busy, he/she may not be able to manage it, so parents should communicate with the child about where to wait, in the class or at the door, and so on. Cell phones are not permitted in the early grades.
4 Writing stance Posture is difficult to correct, incorrect posture should be corrected as soon as possible, to the upper grades is difficult to change, will affect the speed of writing 5 training every day to organize the school bag, let the child prepare their own school bag, appropriate reminding
5 Establish hygienic habits Perform eye exercises and train the child to clean up properly so that he or she can serve the class later.
6 Pay attention to your surroundings and develop a reading habit. Many elementary schools are book campuses, with books being read aloud during lunchtime.
7 Instill in your child the habit of listening and sharing. What others have answered, do not respond again, but will listen and be able to identify the flaws in others’ responses.
I hope the suggestions above can assist moms and dads in effectively guiding their children through this time so that they can officially begin their academic careers as good, healthy, and happy elementary school students.
