FYI, children at age 3 to 6 are very dominant in their right brain.

They are creative, imaginative, asking lots of surprising questions.

Parents have to be often observed this behavior and find the correct ways to teach them how to make use of this talent!

Some tips to teach your lil angel:

To be able to teach a toddlers class, you will need to understand something about child development, and structure the classes in such a way as to compliment and reinforce this.

Child development has four main aspects, and these are as follows (collectively, these are known as “PIES” (easy way of remembering them!):

  • Physical
  • Intellectual
  • Emotional
  • Social

Teaching toddlers can be an extremely rewarding undertaking as you can often see the results of your efforts almost immediately *Insya-Allah*. It is well worth the extra efforts involved 😉

Recommended teaching methods for toddler & preschoolers:

Children of this age have:

  • A great deal of energy
  • A very short attention span
  • An ability to learn quickly
  • A love of games and play
  • Varying levels of coordination

This means that your lessons will need to be the following:

  • Safe! (safety first).
  • Short (30/45 mins max).
  • Kinaesthetic (emphasis placed upon “doing”).
  • Interesting, challenging and informative.
  • Have plenty of variety.
  • Contain lots of the “fun” element.

Practice make perfect 😉  Practice is the last secret.

Keep on trying  mommies ;) Homeschooling is the BEST!

May Allah swt always bless & help you. Amin~

Gambatte ne! *cuddles*

  1. Hi MamaFiza, Big Bro is turning into a very handsome young man! And your daughters are very sweet too! Reading your blog indirectly “reminds” me that I dont have to constantly be a drill sergeant at home..! Must chill out with the kidz sometimes 🙂

    Thanks for the everflowing good info! If someone just doesnt like us, that’s just too bad. We have a lot of other better things to do *alhamdulillah*, and they just don’t. Most of the time these type of people are better off ouf of our lives anyway.
