Items maderlesl, i By ANDREA GAINER WVU Extension Agent, Home Economics, Greenbrier Young children have a natu- ral curiosity about this world, and that makes them eager stu- dents. However, helping them learn can be frustrating for par- ents and other adults unless they understand the learning process. To succeed as teachers, par- ents must first understand how young chlldren learn, what they need to know. and how to en- courage learning. Young children learn through their senses -- especially by touching, tasting, hearing, see- ing -- and through movement. The whole body Is Involved In the process. Children usually begin by exploring their sur- roundings. Then they go on to discover the purpose or meaning of specific objects. For a young child, the four steps to learning are: explore, discover, repeat, and adapt. Each step Is vital. Left to their own devices, children are learn- Ing constantly this way. For ex- ample, when babies stop crawl- Ing around a room to play with a bright ball, they are uslng their sensory-motor skills to learn. They touch or move the ball many times to reinforce their ]earning experience. And later, they will use their new skills to explore other objects in a similar way, trying to adapt what they have learned to new situations. To help young children ex- plore, discover, repeat, and adapt new skills, ad4 provide times, places, rials for learning to encourage learning,I activity. Let children many people --- you~?: Talk with chtldren, li them.
