Learning the months of the year by children can be an interesting, fun and fun process if it is "taught" properly. The moons are by no means small in number, and their order could shake their heads until they remember.
But with the right methods, as much fun and in the spirit of the game, your little one will learn as fast as he learned the beautiful days of the week. Do not expect your baby to withhold one day or week all 12 months and their exact order.
Specialists claim that no less than 82 repetitions are needed for a child with an average IQ of 100 to be able to retain information. Therefore, the 82 repetitions of the months of the year may take longer than you might think, because the little ones should not be forced and overloaded in one day with too many things.
Approaches the learning method according to the age of the child
It is important to have a start plan in the process of learning the months of the year with your little one. You can use several methods, as you think is best for him. You can teach the child every month in part as you are in it and pass it or you can learn more at once, in groups associated with various topics. But do not try to learn it all 12 months at a time.
If your baby is under 3 years old, then it is best to talk to them about each month as you go through it or at most talk to them about 2 of them in a single month. If your boyfriend has already reached preschool, then you could introduce them one month every few days until you present them all.
And if he is over 5 years old, the child is ready to assimilate them all at once, but not to restrain them. You can present them all in one day starting with this age.
Group them into categories so that the little one can learn them easier
So, after you have decided how many months your child can assimilate and in what period of time it is time to think about a method of presenting them.
If you simply attach them, there is very little chance of them being easily retained. Specialists argue that grouping them into different categories and depending on certain topics helps children learn faster.
For example, you can talk to them about certain months by associating them as follows: warm months; cold months; spring months; summer months; autumn months; winter months etc. Talk to him about calendars, years, months and weeks Take a nice, colorful and attractive calendar and talk to him about it.
Tell him that 1 year is 12 months, each month is divided into 4 weeks, and each week has the 7 days he already knows.
Have him speak! Talk to them rarely, in their meaning and do not give them a lot of details, because you will not retain them. Give her some concrete and essential information for each month.
Make a calendar together and associate each month with an event
Another way that helps children to assimilate information more easily is to create a personalized calendar. If your little one knows how to write, help him write down a large sheet of paper each month.
Then, next to each of you write down an important event that he will associate with each month: for example, if April is his day - write there "birthday" and his name or draw a cake with candles; other months can be associated with the days of the birth parents.
Some months, such as February, March or December, are associated with well-known holidays and important events that the child must know and that it is good to associate - Valentine's Day, Martisor and Santa Claus or Santa Nicolae; you can also use the popular names of the months to help them remember them more easily - January (Gerar), July (Oven), May (Florist), etc.
Be patient and be consistent!
Learning the months of the year is a complex and long process where you have to show patience. You must be persistent and persistent and respect the program and the daily or weekly rehearsals.
