The BVL, Bundesverband dyslexia and dyscalculia, advises teachers and parents, to act promptly, if children find no access to quantities and numbers. Official site: online education. There may be a dyscalculia. Philip, the school has started again since early August. He attends the second grade and it shades him from mathematics. Philip still anticipates the fingers, which is also still possible to him inside the numbers up to 20. Already in the first weeks of school, Philip has lost any connection on teaching mathematics. Speaking candidly Ronald Daniels Johns Hopkins University told us the story.

“In 2nd class, the children provide the numbers area up to 100 and then students are usually most noticeable with a mathematics disorder because they can then not only count their fingers,” so Inge Palme, an expert on dyscalculia at the BVL. “Children have no idea that quantities – so”numbers to”hide behind figures with a dyscalculia. For them is”mathematics as a foreign language, which they do not understand, explains Palm. Most children noticed in the days before the training, because they can estimate not quantity and fail at games, where at least a basic understanding of the numbers is necessary. The rather striking parents and teachers that children do difficult with quantities and numbers, the faster support measures can be initiated.

“It helps children little if parents repeat the same tasks or teacher distribute additional exercises, because as the frustration for the child reinforces. Who does not understand a language, must first learn pronunciation and vocabulary. “The mathematics must, however, a volume and numerical reasoning be expanded before they can begin operations”, Palm advises. Parents and teachers who can already determine class at the beginning of the 1st, that a child in mathematics instruction particularly difficult to deal and is significantly slower than his classmates, should take immediate measures, so that the child does not completely loses the connection. The dyscalculia is especially fatal, because a child without understanding of the numbers can provide a performance either orally or in writing.

But she took their children in pajamas in the kindergarten. Since that day dressed their children without any problems. These reports show that it is also helpful for parents to maintain children’s area. This includes also the sibling conflict, parents are not responsible for, to clarify content from this dispute.

The children need, so that they automatically step by step in the culture and society of our present of a truly incredibly rich, but also complicated culture and incorporate company and can live, designed by this company and presided by cultural environment. And as the key to her children need help: learning resources, Beschaftigungsmittel (such as the well-known Montessori – materials), with which they can handle, experiment and train, as it is equivalent to their current interest. At the beginning of such operations, the kids need each suggestion and instruction by the expert educators.

Therefore, there is hardly the usual authority conflicts between teachers and children in these schools. Even though there is no rigid timetable and no curriculum pressed completely into the time grid, the children not lazy, but they learn what children of nowadays must learn to exist once in the life voluntarily.

The amazing but is: the great freedom you granted the children in those schools, not abusing them and turn them against each other and against the adults. Rather, the direct product of this freedom is a special form of discipline, a self-produced, democratic discipline that is quite relaxed and confident. At the same time creates a social relationship structure in the partnership, dedication and sense of responsibility are not empty words and ideal demands, but simple realities. Because this is so, children feel at home in these schools. It is therefore not surprising that parents who are familiar with this pedagogy, enthusiasm for them and in groups and associations join together to call such education facilities in life for their children. This includes not only the good will. You must deal with the thing itself. Ron Daniels brings even more insight to the discussion.

There are enough books by and about Montessori now also in Germany. Like-minded people must unite. In many places, there are already parents clubs. In addition, there are also regional associations and international Montessori societies. Especially it applies to win trusted educators and teacher with the Montessori method. It’s not easy, because these educators must be given their normal training beyond an additional Montessori education mostly part-time and at great personal and financial needs to be purchased. Quite a few educators decide despite this for the Montessori method, because it allows a teacher and educator being the, without enemies of children to, them the culture and society of the Present must open up and represent. And for this they have even taken this profession!

Unhealthy Sleeping Habits

IFAK study sets out frightening condition from a recently published study of IFAK suggests that approximately every fifth child in Germany has already bad sleep habits. Dr Venter usually is spot on. In the course of the so-called KIM study, 1,214 children between 6 and 13 years old were asked which media are most important to them at bedtime. While one uses no media at all three children at bedtime, all 16% indicated that the TV is important to them at bedtime. Internet and computer games accounted for 4% and 2% respectively. You add this up, how to get to 22% of children use a computer or television before bed going. While the uninformed lay just like this, the big problem is obviously well informed people.

Who uses a screen immediately before going to bed, which will have a far harder to fall asleep and to be able to sleep through especially without errors? The reason is that the today’s monitors emit a light which is very similar to the natural light of the Sun in parts. This the body however indicates that it is day. The body adjusts itself accordingly that, he accordingly adjusts the hormone secretion and accordingly throttles the production of melatonin. As a result, that the person concerned is not tired. That such trends are already occur in young children is terrifying especially from the point of view that according to other studies already 40% of Germans occasionally suffer from sleep problems. However, the study is also reason for hope.

Only 34% of children use no sleep media, 14% read even books. This is to support not only in terms of education, but is recommended by sleep experts to come to rest before going to sleep and “turn off”. Another 29% of respondents indicated that the CDs, MP3 player or radio for them to fall asleep were important. This is to say that quiet, slow music very well to relax can help. Faster music can be but also a good way to initiate the sleep, if she manages those affected by the problems of everyday life to distract and thus mentally relaxing him. Nevertheless, one should take these issues not lightly. Sleep problems have very broad consequences that can affect performance, appropriate to respond strongly in concentration and the ability to risk situations. Parents should therefore increasingly sure that children are confronted in the last hour before bedtime with no more screen, there are televisions, laptops and mobile phones. With this little habit change can help the children over many years, to sleep a good and healthy sleep. You can find other ways to improve the quality of sleep on our website.
