Improving Problem Solving Skills in Childrens :
The range of teaching-and-learning activities in the classroom runs from memorization and repetition all the way to solving problems and thinking creatively.
In our classrooms, we can look for ways to address this entire range. For example, we can:
Use blocks, Models, and other objects to teach mathematics, which taps into children’s fine motor skills and their visual understanding;
Invite children to talk about (or write about) ideas and process in mathematics, Which links their verbal thinking to understanding mathematics concepts,
Ask children to draw pictures for the stories that we read to them, which connects their visual thinking to the words and events in the story; and
Guide children in making maps of the area around school, which links their experience of movement in space to visual and mathematical concepts. When children survey their community, identify problems within it, and use their skills cooperatively to suggest solutions to these problems, they are learning how to apply what they learn in school. A part from imparting good education, this process helps the community to understand the work of the school, and they may be more motivated to support the work of teachers.
For your classroom to be fully inclusive, you need to make sure that the curriculum is accessible to and relevant for all children in terms of what you teach (content), how you teach it, how the children learn best (process), and how it relates to the environment in which the children are living and learning.
