Need help to help your children learn at home. Here is some information about the different ways learning can look, in the classroom, in the real world or during distance learning.
EXAMPLE: If was trying to find out how many things in a group, I could think about the different ways I might count or sort things. Sometimes when people are learning new things they need time and space to wonder about what else might be possible or connected to their learning. People can use what they already know to explore new possibilities.
EXAMPLE: If was trying to find out about what living and non living things were I could ask questions about the things around me. Sometimes when people are learning new things they need an opportunity to ask questions. Asking questions can help people find out new ideas, check old ideas for misconceptions or find new connections.
EXAMPLE: If was trying to find out the different ways to spell a word, I might need to understand that people won’t understand me if I just use any letters. Sometimes when people are learning new things it can be tricky or boring, people need to find ways to stay focused. This is easier to do if people can have the chance to think about why they are doing something, or have a connection to, or interest in what they are doing.
EXAMPLE: If I believed that I had solved a number, spelling or science problem, I might need to find a way to justify my answer and the way I solved the problem. Sometimes when people are learning, they need to believe in what the ideas and/or how they found out the information. In order to share what they believe, it helps to have evidence to prove an idea or point.
