The reasons why cartoon is most popular for children?

Many children around the world like watching cartoon on Television, also now is popular in smart devices as well. To learn and know how they like watching it, many researchers were published a lot of reports.

According to Rizzitrinidad, a fourth year student at Eastern Visayas State University, illustrates three main aspects that lead some children prefer to watch the cartoon. Firstly, the cartoons on the TV are fun to watch; for instance Tom and Jerry, School house rock, The little mermaid, and so on. These cartoons made children watch them almost all days when they are free. Next reason is that children can study many things from cartoons easily since they are funny and not dull. The last reason is that cartoons are fantastical, which means that they are not realistic.

So for my idea, cartoon really make most children funny and make them away from feeling bored. They can learn many things from the scene such as culture, history, mathematic, difference languages,  and somehow the make the drawing picture of cartoons, etc. That is why many young people are addicted to watching cartoons.

Did you have any reasons or idea why children like watching cartoon?

The Secret to Raising Smart Kids

All parents in the whole society always desire to see their kids growing smarter to achieve livable communities and regional equity. Otherwise, least of them can achieve their goal due to the lack of knowledge to do so.

According to the Time’s Magazine which based in USA, they described some importance strategies to make your kids smarter. For instance, music lesson makes the students learning advantage in the classroom and gave greater increases in full-scale IQ. Next, parents should not read the books to your kids, but please read with them; it would be help build their reading skills. Health is the best thing to focus for your kids, so you should give them the healthy food. Other example is happiness; since happier kids are more likely to turn into successful accomplished adults. Give your baby smart toys. These are toys that stimulate and build his brains. Apps from tablets and smartphones can be effective educational toys, but it is best that you play with them with your baby. Machines are not as effective as humans in building your baby’s brains.

In my opinion, making your kids smarter should be involve from all aspects combine together such as family, friends, teachers, and the environment in the society. But I think parents have their big impacts to their child than other one to make their child smarter. In this case, parents have to be clear about their own values, because children watch us closely than the other. If you want your children to be able to stand up for their values, you have to do the same. Furthermore, parents also have to make sure their own lives are fulfilling.

Gesturing with hands is a powerful tool for children’s math learning

Most children usually use their hand to gesture when they want to calculate the math numbers or complexity equation. That was the easy way to improve a deep understanding of the problem they were taught, based on the new research from the University of Chicago’s department of Psychology.

The research found that, acting gave children a relatively shallow understanding of a novel mathematic concept, whereas gesturing led to deeper and more flexible learning with a convenient approach. Moreover, gesturing encourage the learners to create their knowledge they had gained during instruction, concrete gesture somewhere in between and action least effective. Children will appear to learn underlying concept from their action only insofar as those action can be interpreted symbolically.

To me, abstract gestures are very useful and powerful tool for helping children understand and create mathematical principle. For instance, as shown in the picture, children will be first presume to calculate (2+9) that led to equal 11 then will add with 4 to get the result of 15. Therefore, gesturing help them to find the way to get solution quickly with more accuracy rate instead of try to calculate the whole complexity equation.guesture
