Strategies for Learning is a WebPage dedicated to those who want to learn and share skills on helping their children to acheive optimal learning for life and throughout life.
In here you can find the following topics :
Would you like your child to be able to read and write before three , fix 40-piece jig-saw puzzles before two and fix tangrams before three ? Which parent does not want ? Yes all the above can be done and much more if we were just put in more effort, zest and creativity into the process of stimulating our child's learning process.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED TO BRING UP A WELL DEVELOPED CHILD, READ ON OR E-MAIL TO ME at firstname.lastname@example.org FOR MORE DISCUSSIONS.
For relaxation , please enjoy yourself with some GAMES ,listen to some music :
A Summer Place Autumn Leaves Blue Velvet Ebbtide Final Fantasy3
Magaritavile One Mans Dream Power of Love Songbird Up on the Roof
Aria Passion Country Road Jambalaya Looking for Love
( Music is a wonderful source of mind stimulation as well as relaxation. It enhances right brain thingking.You can listen to the music while surfing my site.)
,watch a movie clip of a telescopic scan for satellites (look out for the bright spots)
solve some QUIZZES
a. There are 30 animals in a farm and they have 100 legs altogether. The animals are make up of rabbits and chickens. How many rabbits and chickens are there ? Click here for answer

For information on purchase of books teaching young children how to draw please email email@example.com
1.2 CHESS & SEMINARS
Myn and Lyn are also keen chess players. In May 00 they played a simultaneous game with Anatoly Karpov, supergrandmaster and world chess champion where the champ took on 40 national junior training squad chess players at the same time.
Chess is good for training of the mind.
My family also attends interesting seminars together . For example in Feb 00, we attended a talk by the 1996 Physics Nobel Prize Winner, Prof D Osheroff , on Superfluidity in Helium-3.
1.3 PUBLISHED ARTICLES
Myn and Lyn have also had their essays published and written an article in the following publications such as:
(i) Article in Mensa Newsletter (1999, Myn and Lyn)
There is also a link to a talk given by me to Physics major on Career in Physics.
2. The Five Senses and Multiple Intelligences
We all learn through our five senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste but the bulk of learning is through sight and hearing. To learn well we must be able to harness these faculties, especially that of sight for maximum learning capacity and capability.
There are different intelligences and each person has varying degree of the following types :
- Visual-spatial (based on sight and right brain and needed for early learning where pattern recognition skill is key)
- Verbal-linguistic (based on hearing and left brain for learning of speech and language)
- Mathemaitcal-logical (very much left brain and analytical faculty)
- Kinesthetics (ability for physical acitivites such as sports)
- Naturalist (natural flair with nature - plants and animals etc.)
- Musical-rhythmic (talent for music)
- Interpersonal (necessary for relating with people ; some call it EQ)
- Intrapersonal (personal management skill to deal and cope with uncertainties and problems in life)
Parents would do well to help their children develop all these areas to at least a certain level of proficiency in order to live life to the fullest.
3. Developmental Milestones
The following are developmental milestones grouped by age which parents can use as guide to plan their learning programme for their children.
4. 18 months to 2 years
5. 2 to 3 years
6. 3 to 4 years
7. 4 to 5 years
8. 6 to 9 years
9. 10 to 12 years
10. 12 years and above
11.1 Memory skills
A good memory is necessary for effective learning. I f much of what is learnt is not remembered and cannot be recalled readily, then the knowledge management process is not as good as someone with a better memory.
Techniques such as Mind Maps or Concept Maps are very powerful ways to enhance knowledge acquistion, organisation, reacall, uaage and generation. The right brain faculty , which is much under-utilised, is used extensively in such techniques.

|Drawing is a good form of relaxation and training of brain-hand coordination, spatial intelligence and discipline. This skill is best developed from 2 years old onwards|
