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.

a) the child simply didn’t get into too much food that was unprofitable, which he and his whole family would go to “catch up” after they stopped stuffing “wholesome” into it. Continue reading
Once a mathematician (not a teacher, but a real scientist!) Began to conduct a home math circle.
With children 3-5 years old, he did not cram the multiplication table and count from 1 to 9 and vice versa, but was engaged in the development of scientific thinking.
Interesting? What came of this, he said in the book (Zvonkin AK, “Kids and Mathematics. Home Club for Preschoolers”). I read it in one breath and am sharing with you.
For those who are looking for quick practical recommendations – go to the section “For those who want to do math with their children” and further. Who cares what the book is about – see the table of contents as an illustration.
How it was… Continue reading
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
