How To Get Your Child To Focus on Flash Card Lessons?

I just found some interesting articles, and I would love to share them with you...

I found this article from a well-known educational magazine for teachers. Here are some tips given by teachers, for teachers.

"Detox" them slowly with deep breathing, music, story games, and even meditative penmanship.

  1. Song Cycle - I play 3 soft, soothing songs after recess before I start teaching. It really works! - Allison H.

  2. Deep Breathing - My students and I practice yoga breathing techniques. In through the nose, arm up, out through the mouth, arms down, I find it focuses me as well. - Teri R.

  3. Tiny Bubbles - I like to integrate sensory activities into the class after recess: I Move, blow bubbles, and even do yoga. - Julie C.

  4. Use The O2 - Brain research shows that one of the best times to teach a lesson is after recess. I start a new brain activity right after some deep breathing exercises. - Michelle B.

  5. Brain Gym - I love Brain Gym! There is a great video on YouTube if I ever need inspiration. These exercises help refocus my class and are extremely helpful on test days. - Rebecca W.

  6. Smart Detox - I either do a story build game to help students with their vocabulary or a times table game for math help. I like to detox them slowly rather than expect them to sit down at once. - Eunice H.

Teachers use creative ways to get their students to focus. Why shouldn't parents too?
