Hand ability is more than just a cognitive ability. It’s also a fundamental ability that has a profound impact on building a good character. Hand is sometimes called the “second brain” for the use of hands is closely connected to the command given by the cerebral cortex. If children’s hand ability is cultivated properly, it will be easier for other abilities to develop.
Spatial Ability is an acquired ability. Children can only gain this ability through learning. During the process of learning, the things we see are called “2-dimensional information.” When the information is passed on to our brain, it becomes “3-dimensional information.” It’s vital to master spatial ability because whether children have good thinking ability will depend heavily on the progress of spatial ability.
Shape ability is one of the basic abilities for children between 2~6 years old. At this stage, over 90 percent of the brain have developed. Children are not born with this ability, so they can only acquire it by consistent practice. If we miss the golden time to cultivate this ability, then it will be harder for children to understand concept related to shape.
Mathematical skill is not all about calculation. To have a good command of mathematical skill, it requires other abilities as well. In our lesson, children will enjoy learning numbers, and also learn how to solve complicated problems. Little by little, we will see a big improvement in their mathematical and logical ability.
We can tell whether a child has good mathematical skill by judging from his or her literacy. Children will be able to communicate with others well if they have higher thinking ability. In order to help children develop high-level cognitive abilities, our goal is to cultivate a genuine literacy so that children can have good interpersonal relationship.
