Hi Devesh! How r u! Studies when confined to a room and restricted to pencil and paper, ought to be boring. It's advisable explore innovative ways to teach a concept and take a step beyond. u need to think outside the box to make your champ find it interesting. Involve yourself completely and keep a tab on the progress made. Focus on weak areas and work on it . Explain the concept in two three ways say through pictures,or watching a video , story telling, making a craft or even visiting a museum if that can help. For example if u have to teach addition /subtraction take the child to grocery store and on his own buy vegetables or fruits of his choice and give money to the shopkeeper and take the balance amount. Or on the way to a store , u could ask him to memorize numbers of a number plate repeat it and then tell you the sum. Take turns in playing with him. Praise him on correct answer and huge round of applause. For English , u could tell him to say naming words of name, place, animal, things while on a way to mall or in a park. He could at the end of day write one page everyday of how he spent his day or any random topic of his interest and share with the family members. Family members too could do the same to make it an interesting family activity. You could watch cartoons with him with language changed to English and ask him few questions at the end and teach him new words with their meanings and usage in a sentence. Try reading newspaper with him and make a diary of difficult words with their meanings. Use the words learnt in everyday conversation. In Hindi , u could read him a story from his textbook before sleeping as a everyday bedtime ritual. Then ask him to narrate it on his own words. And following day he could practice difficult words and questions. similarly EVS can be taught by relating it to real life examples such as seasons of the year, what he does in each season, names of seasonal fruits. U could do research with him on a particular topic by collecting information, pictures, Data , and writing it in a scrapbook. Please remember in this case praise and hugs and overt expression of love to your child is directly proportional to the willingness to learn and interest in the activity being done. On the other hand scolding, raising tone, spanking or negative words is inversely proportional to interest in the activity as well as the performance. Hope this helps!
