Feel good while learning

Knowledge and learning material can be conveyed more memorably with pictures and stories, and routine, fixed structures and repeating what has been learned in a fixed time frame are helpful in learning. If a child is unfocused, always puts off learning, and gets distracted by their smartphone and other things, learning cannot succeed.

Writing a to-do list and checking off what has been done helps with learning and gives children a sense of achievement.

A mind map can also provide orientation as a learning tool. The Pomodoro technique is also helpful, in which a kitchen alarm clock is used to set the time frame in which children work on their tasks in a concentrated manner, in small regular learning portions, interrupted by small breaks.

For ten- to twelve-year-olds, the optimal concentration time is 25 minutes, and for younger ones, 15 minutes.
