My name’s Van Anh. Today, i am very glad to share my journal about brain-based research and multiple intelligence for PELT.
About brain-based research
According to many scientists, the first three years of child’s life are the most important stage to help child develop optimally the intellectual potential. This is stage which children’s brain develop quickly about structure and complete the important functions. the parts of brain related to language, memory, listening and seeing develop strongly. In this time, Parent is not only nutritional supplement for the children but also instruct child participate in some activities to encourage the child’s brain development. Brain reaserch also help us choose appropriate activities with the child’s age.
Teaching English for children early is also the good way to develop their brain. At home, parents can call their baby’s intimate name by foreign language such as Tom, Bob, Bill, etc. to help child familiar with English. Parents can also teach child to use “daddy” and “mummy” to call them. It’s easy to teach English for chilren base on short and simple songs with funny melodies, simple words such as “good night” before sleeping, say “hello”, “Hi”, or simple sentences such as ” What is your name?”, ” How old are you?”, ” What is your father’s/mother’s name?”, etc. Using pictures, toys, games, and vivid activities to attract the child’s attention.
About Multiple Intelligence
Intelligence is the ability to solve problems or to create products that are valued within one or more cultural settings. There are seven multiple intelligences: linguistic intelligence, mathematic or logical intelligence, visual or spatial intelligence, musical intelligence, bodily intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, and intrapersonal intelligence. Using mutiple intelligence in teaching for primary students help teacher research and develop brain power of primary students to find the opportunities and educational choices for each individual. Moreover, we can orient and train to help chilrdren be able to develop theỉ talent in studying and have good orientation to the job in the future. In general, using multiple intelligence is an effective method in teaching and learning English among primary school.
I’m very happy to receive your comments!
