Things to Remember When Teaching Children...

Below are some tips shared during our church, FIBC's Children's ministry seminar, which I find really helpful and would like to share it here. Interestingly, all of the ideas are very agreeable with Montessori.

1. Movement is essential to learning because movement builds the brain.

2. Each brain is unique and must be taught uniquely.

3. Keep it simple - too much information given too quickly will not be retained.

4. Repeat, repeat, repeat - the brain rately gets it right the first time.

5. Vision triumps all other senses.

6. Emotions drive learning.

7. Safety is critical - emotional and physical.

8. Help children to see patterns and relationships
