Why and how to play role-playing games with children 3-7 years old
Preschoolers must always play role-playing and plot-role-playing games (the difference between these two concepts is well written here). A role-playing game is like a “recipe”, not only for teaching writing,…

Throw a bowl of cookies!

I speak with parents of preschool children and even older children: almost every first one mentions “problems with feeding” or “does not eat normal food”. Moreover, the children are different: from thin people to those whose cheeks do not fit into the photo.
I’m starting to ask. It turns out, according to many parents, there is a certain norm of wholesome food that a child must eat. They do not set themselves the task of satisfying the child’s healthy appetite. For many modern kids, a healthy appetite is a luxury! Parents see their task – to ram the child with healthy food so that:

Kids and math. Home club for preschoolers

The author of this book, a professional mathematician, talks about his experience in mathematics with preschoolers. The genre of the book is mixed: diary entries are interspersed with discussions of mathematics or psychology, observation of children and their reaction to what is happening are a source for new tasks, and they, in turn, allow us to deepen and develop the ideas outlined by the dotted line.
The book will be interesting to parents of preschool children (as well as their grandparents), kindergarten teachers, primary school teachers and in general to all those interested in the process of developing children’s intelligence. Continue reading

Developmental Psychology and the Divide and Conquer Principle
