Research shows that laughter and humour are great for learning.
When we laugh, chemical processes in the brain create happiness and more oxygen to the blood, which provides more energy to the brain. And it increases our ability to pick up knowledge, remember and solve problems.
So if you can get the laughter and good atmosphere going, then things will be much funnier.
At the same time, the technical level should fit your child.
I know you are not educated to assess this, so it is better to speak with your child’s teachers or other professionals.
But you can always see whether your child finds it difficult or easy to do the assignments when you do homework. If that is the case, the level should be adjusted.
Another extra tip for creating a good atmosphere is to consider whether physical space affects your child’s emotions.
Is it, for instance, a cosy place to do homework?
The physical surroundings are closely connected to your childø’s learning style. If you want to learn more about it, I have written an article on learning styles for you here.
3 – Make mistakes to positives
Us with dyslexia are good at making mistakes when it comes to letters and words.
We can either choose to be sad and close the book.
Or we can get help to fix the mistake and learn from it the next time we are facing the same word.
One thing is for sure, if your child closes the book, then the learning stops.
Your child must know that it is okay to make mistakes.
The carousel ride is over for now.
I hope the ride was insightful.
