Top Activity Tip

top learning styles. discover the steps to successfully educate your child every day #kidslearning #learningsstylesIt is very important to allow kids to do part of the activity alone

Why?

The answer here is very important and two-fold:

1. You will easily discover:
  • whether they prefer working on their own or in a group
  • continue working with them if that is their preference
  • also get them to do some parts alone
2. Introduce and develop an essential learning skill:
