Improve Focus in Child in School
How School can Help in Improving Child’s Focus
Below are a few tips for the teacher as well as school authorities which when applied helps in improving children’s focus.
Involve Children Actively
If you work with children in a school environment, you will get the best results by teaching children to participate. Ask questions often: when children participate, they have less trouble concentrating and staying alert.
Children will concentrate more easily if you speak clearly and calmly (but not too calmly!) And avoid using foreign words or vocabulary too advanced for their level. We all struggle to stay alert to something incomprehensible and children are no exception to this rule.
Raise Your Tone In A Controlled Way
If the children stop being attentive and begin to dissipate, you have the right to raise the tone to get them to refocus. However, do not scream or raise the tone too often or the technique will not have any effect on the children.
Tap In Your Hands
Clapping is a good way to catch the attention of young children. You might prefer to snap your fingers or ring a bell.
Learning to focus is very important but always try to stay relaxed about it. To show you angry, frustrated or impatient with your child will not help.
Know that exercise and movement are absolutely essential for children, especially when they are small. Children, who play sports, walk or cycle to school, or who are active in one way or another, concentrate more easily in class and when they do their homework.
Research suggests that meditation promotes concentration even in children. You can teach simple breathing and meditation techniques to a child, at home or in school.
