If in the fall in school...

We publish answers of specialists of the Center of a neuropsychology to the most widespread parental questions within the stock “School without the Two“. Today they are devoted to future school students.

I Am going to write down

the son in school. Read the test in the magazine, and there it is written: if the child answers “no“ the question “Whether You Want to Go to School?“ it is definitely not ready to school. Why so? What else there are readiness signs - unavailabilities to school?

If the child answers

“no“, it means, it has so far no educational motivation, desire to study, to gain knowledge. And it is the most important component of so-called psychological readiness for school. Experience shows that the children going to school without conscious desire cope with study worse. Clever, but unmotivated children often are included in the category of lagging behind. And at us, adults, a favourite job, isn`t that so is better got?

can not be

of Motivation owing to age or circumstances of life. If the child is more than 6,5 years old, it is worth addressing the psychologist who will help to understand the reasons of absence of motivation. Can stir the child, for example, negative educational experience of the senior children in a family or own, kindergarten experience.

What else requirements lay down new conditions of school life to the child?

Readiness to work on a sample according to rules - randomness of behavior . It means, the child will be able to solve the example similar to former, to recede the necessary quantity of sections in a notebook, etc.

Acceptance of a role of the pupil and readiness to fulfill requirements of the teacher, recognition of the teacher by the significant adult.

Ability to share reality and imaginations . The preschool child can be trusted in fairy tales, and the child ready to school, already understands how the world is arranged that happens actually and that is not present.

Intellectualization of affect - ability of the child to think of consequences of the acts, to anticipate results of the activity.

the Self-assessment has to be adequate to

or slightly - is slightly overestimated.

to Estimate

whether there are these qualities at the child, you will be helped by the psychologist.

Mark out to

still so-called pedagogical readiness for school - it is considered that future pupil has to possess a certain set of skills. However mastering, say, reading or the letter without psychological readiness for school hardly is simple will promote successful study.

6,5 years will be By September of the daughter. She takes national dancing classes, goes to the pool. Spells. Considers within 20. Easily remembers verses. Recently was fond of coloring, does it accurately. On occupations are happy with it. Whether to send her to school in the fall? Whether will be late in a year? In general whether it is possible to be late in school? And to what to us to pay attention in sense of preparation?

In our practice the case when the child would suffer because that went to school later was not em>. Excess year to school if to reflect, gives even several advantages.

In - the first, the child will be more senior than schoolmates, more strong physically, with big, than at them, life experience. This in itself raises a self-assessment and creates conditions to become the leader, the successful person.

In - the second, the remained year it is possible to use for the benefit of the child too. If you do not know, than it is better to be engaged, - get advice of the neuropsychologist. This expert will estimate development of your daughter, feature of the organization of her brain and will pick up suitable kinds of activity. it is difficult for p to advise

in absentia, but which - what can be noted. Occupations by dances and the pool promote good interaction of the left and right hemispheres of a brain. Coloring - good training of a brush, preparation of a hand for the letter. Experience of communication with different teachers is very valuable too. And here to what it would be desirable to pay attention. Whether rather your daughter plays with peers - in outdoor games on the street, in syuzhetno - role, in board games with strict rules? Whether its horizons, ideas of live and inanimate nature, occupations of people, professions, geographical knowledge are broadened? Can she tell that she saw or about what read to her? Of course, at internal consultation of the recommendation will be fuller.

is Often told: it will be boring for more senior child in the first class moreover according to the program 1 - 4. But it cannot be foreknown. It is necessary to begin to study, and it will become clear: it is worth transferring the son or the daughter to the following class ahead of schedule, or just right to study it exactly here.

How to prepare the child for testing at enrollment of pupils?

It is possible, we will surprise you if we tell that special preparation for testing is not required. Moreover, it can even be harmful: in that case when parents frighten the child by the forthcoming test or very much worry, and their nervousness is transferred to the kid. This feeling of alarm during examinations can remain with the child for the rest of life! Better and more directly that child who just considers that he goes to register to school, to meet the teacher behaves on testing.

disturbs you whether he will be able to answer questions of tests? Most likely and, they are based on usual knowledge of world around, on daily experience of the child - the preschool child to whom read books, with whom discuss what was seen... By the way, the sensible psychologist when testing looks, how well future pupil is able to be guided by rules. And the child can master rules only in game with peers. If the child learned to play “by rules“, then he and at school will behave by rules, as if transferring game conditions to reality.

does not have

sense “to train“ the kid on tests as sometimes adults want. In - the first, each psychologist has them the (though the general principles are observed), and the “taught“ child it is visible at once. In - the second, such preparation nevrotizirut the child. And in - the third, by results of testing it becomes clear whether the program of school suits this kid. It is very important: the child has to study according to the program corresponding to his level. Then he will worse not feel the children surrounding it and, the most important, excessive intellectual loadings will not lead to intellectual exhaustion.

If you doubt that your kid is ready to testing, pass sample tests - them all psychologists and a neuropsychology own - and receive recommendations about preparation for school of your child.
