The little man is back to school this year as a Kinder student. I know it will be more challenging as he gears up towards elementary education. He will be away in school longer this time and with more subjects to study, too. Can you believe they now have Science and Social Studies in Kinder? During my time, all I remember about Kinder is story time, a little bit of pencil work, and play! Children these days really have a lot more in their plate and they face more challenges daily compared to the children of past generations.
Jared did perform really well in class last year and I would love for him to do the same this year. More than getting good grades in school, I would love for him to enjoy learning, be a well-rounded person, and grow up to achieve his full potentials and make the most of his life. Lofty goals, I know, but I am taking small steps towards those goals. Meanwhile, I will make sure he gets adequate amount of sleep, as well as sufficient amount of nutrition his growing body needs to get through our daily goals. I will also ensure that he gets enough play to unwind and relax, and I will constantly remind him to do his homework and other school-related activities promptly. Of course, I will always be ready to give him the right amount of affection and encouragement to keep him going and to improve his self-esteem.
It is also of utmost importance that I boost my child’s Multiple Intelligence. Here are 3 reasons why Multiple Intelligence is essential not only in the classroom but more so in life:
- It allows children to be balanced and well-rounded individuals later in life, who can function as effective members of the society.
- Multiple Intelligence-based teaching and activities fosters “teaching for understanding” that allows children to have positive learning experiences, as well as the capability to create solutions to problems.
- It also opens multiple opportunities for children in later life, as well as inspires multiple achievement beneficial to the child’s self-esteem and self-worth
And here are a few of the ways on how I plan to boost the little man’s Multiple Intelligence:
