Logical thinking ability refers to the ability to combine content. This is not necessarily innate. It’s a sense of frame that gradually builds up in people’s minds. Children with strong logical thinking ability will naturally have stronger learning ability. Therefore, it is extremely important to cultivate children’s logical thinking ability, and parents must exercise this ability of children from an early age.
How can we cultivate children’s logical thinking?
Children in the sensitive period of logical thinking at the age of 3 already have a concrete concept of objects in life. They understand colors, objects, shapes, etc. and are already able to express themselves. During this period, parents can use the things that these children have understood to carry out effective logical thinking training for children. Here are 4 simple, effective and easy-to-follow ways to improve your logical thinking.
1. Use props to help develop children’s logical thinking ability from simple to difficult.
Parents can start regular training with the simplest colors. For example, if you draw two red circles and one yellow circle on paper, the pattern of red, red and yellow is formed. Repeat this three times, and then ask the child what color it will be after yellow. If your child can’t answer right away, don’t worry. Give him a choice, red or yellow? Don’t worry if your child makes the wrong choice, tell them the right choice and why. Parents should always pay attention to the state of the baby in training. When distractions, boredom, and frustration arise, we need to adjust our strategies. If parents find it troublesome, they can also buy some similar books to train children’s logical thinking.
2. Cultivate interest.
Usually 3-6 year olds have limited ability to concentrate. At this time, we need to use a more interesting way to grab the attention of children anytime and anywhere for logical thinking training. For example, we can use common food to guide him when eating. Put apples and oranges on his plate and let the child find patterns. After the child answers correctly, reward the child with fresh fruit. Let the children experience the victory, but also supplement the nutrition.
3. Timely rewards.
Everyone loves to do something successful, and kids are no exception. If the child does the game right, we can reward the child. This reward does not have to be material, it can also be an experience. In short, parents decide according to their children’s personality and hobbies, and don’t be stingy with rewards.
4. Training time
This varies from person to person. When you are new to logic training, it is recommended to teach children how to observe and find patterns first. Then start to guide children to observe, find patterns and reason. If the child becomes impatient, it can be temporarily stopped and rested for 5 minutes. And then another way to guide the child. Let the child jump out of the state that just made him feel no joy. This rule also applies when increasing the difficulty.
