Hi,
Parenting is a remarkable event that provides some thrilling moments to parents especially to mothers. In the first few moments soon after birth and as you stare down at the lovely face of your child, you may start thinking about all those things that you can do to raise it to a wonderful human being. However, not many parents think about their baby's brain development because it is a very complex subject.

Child brain development is a mysterious subject. Parents may find it too difficult at times. They may wonder how they can use the basic techniques of brain development that can help make their children intelligent and smart. There are literally thousands of techniques and methods of child brain development. However, it may not be very easy to learn all those technique. My newsletter is trying hard to give you some of the simplest child brain development methods and techniques that any parent can learn and master very easily.

Recently, I came across a wonderful web portal that gives hundreds of pages of useful information on child brain development and its related topics. You can find simple as well as advanced information on how child brain grows and in what manner you can help it grow to an optimum extent. Have a nice day.

Thought for today:
"Children have neither past nor future; they enjoy the present, which very few of us do." - Jean de la Bruyere

Visual-Spatial Learners
By Alexandra Shires Golon

Looking for ways to differentiate your instruction to meet the needs of gifted visual-spatial learners? You've found it in Visual-Spatial Learners: Differentiation Strategies for Creating a Successful Classroom. Visual-spatial learners are students who show advanced abilities with computers, maps, construction toys, and puzzles. These students think outside the box and demonstrate tremendous empathy and compassion.

The author provides a number of strategies to help make your classroom a successful learning environment for all learners. These strategies address preparing students to succeed on timed tests; easing the pain of handwriting; teaching spelling using imagery; incorporating mnemonics, rhyme, and other tricks that engage the right-hemisphere of the brain.

 

Upside-Down Brilliance: The Visual Spatial Learner
By Linda Kreger Silverman

Do you know things without being able to explain how or why? Do you solve problems in unusual ways? Do you think in pictures rather than in words? If so, you are not alone. One-third of the population thinks in images. You may be one or you may live with one. If you teach, it is certain that some of your students -probably the ones you are not reaching - are visual-spatial learners.

Dr. Linda Silverman coined the term "visual-spatial learner" in 1981 to describe the unique gifts of people who think in images. They get the big picture because they see the world through artists' eyes. They remember what they see, but forget what they hear.
