We are, whether we realize it or not, in the middle of a quiet revolution and its new opportunities. The technical mind-set and different brain wiring of Generation Y and Z make it appear rational for the schools to put less emphasis on cursive writing. But is this really what we want to do? Although Generation Y and Z have this technical mind-set, it is also crucial to re-institute the now-absent sense of responsibility and consideration of others. It appears that Generation Y and Z have a free pass on these qualities, resulting in the "Whatever" attitude we witness all too often. This consideration of others should not go out the window with cursive writing and other basic skills.
Academically, parents can use preschool worksheets to help teach their children some of the basic skills they will need for kindergarten and school. This will include counting to ten, recognizing shapes and colors, being able to hold a pencil or crayon properly, and coloring in without scribbling. Basic math concepts such as recognizing patterns, understanding quantity and some simple addition and subtraction will be useful. By the time your child is ready for kindergarten or school, they should be able to recognize their own name and other simple written words. The sounds of each letter of the alphabet should be familiar to your child, and they should understand the principle of reading from left to right, which way to hold a book, and possibly even be starting to read three and four-letter words.
Get rid of the TV. Do not use television or video games as a baby sitter for toddlers while older children are receiving instruction. The disruption of switching on entertainment takes older children out of the realm of imagination and interaction. Use more engaging activities to keep everyone has eyes and minds on higher things. Pull younger children back into the teaching time for activities with a strong tactile component. If you are taking a child or children through a science lesson and you are going to peel an orange and observe the structure of the fruit, that iss a great activity to pull younger ones into. With an extra orange, the simple act of controlling the times that they are allowed to "join in" keeps you in the drivers has seat.
