Children draw to express what they are feeling and thinking. Drawing is a particularly important outlet for children who do not yet have the verbal skills to communicate their feelings. When a child draws something familiar to them, for example, a cat, they have the opportunity to think about what they know and what they feel towards this animal. They use their memory to remember what they know about cats, in turn, expand their concentration skills. Drawing also helps to develop manipulative skills that will help children write.

I remember how my mother was one day to late at night sewing, drawing and preparing the costume, bunch of grapes, he had to wear to school the next day because I was learning the vowel U on the agenda. So we learned. Without technologies and everything “by hand”.
Times have changed a lot. A good example of this is in Singapore that from this year, changed its method of learning, making programming a core subject. Students begin to learn from three years to develop the “computationalthinking”. Continue reading
Difficulties in learning mathematics are known by the name of dyscalculia, this problem also affects other areas that should know.
What is dyscalculia?
It is called the difficulty to perform mathematical calculations and is often applied in academic settings, in cases of children or schoolgirls showing obvious difficulties for mathematics in general: they cannot or will cost a lot perform simple operations with numbers, such as subtraction, addition, multiplication … testamentary find it difficult mental arithmetic, even with simple numbers, and are often unable to understand the approaches to solve mathematical problems that put them in class.
Dyscalculia can start to look over the four years, when the second cycle of infant education begin educators to teach addition and subtraction to students, and become more evident from primary, where demands in mathematics courses require maturity cognitive level that children with these difficulties do not possess.
Children with this difficulty level in mathematics show a well below the average of their age. Other subjects can also be affected, as well as other general areas of psycho child development. Continue reading
If you’ve tried all kinds of punishment possible and still your son ignores all threats and withdrawals of privileges, you need to change strategy to get them to behave.

Advance the education of children, as is being done in some countries, is becoming a topic of conversation very common in our circles; however, the arguments always veer towards the advantages individually, for schooled subject / a, from a psychological point of view and development.
In that sense, the thinking seems to take if we ignore a sociological approach. The first socialization is an issue widely discussed from all disciplines covered in the Faculties of Education Sciences, so I have always found strange neglect existing to the called “Early Childhood Education”. Few people divulge on Early Childhood Education per se from the point of view of the sociology of education and that this education be formal, would change or inertia at the structural level.

Is there a way to work the attention and concentration of students in secondary education?
