helps caretakers teach children the proper steps in accomplishing a goal. Using a "slide board" with picture cards that show each step, kids actually "see" what they need to do in order to finish the task correctly. The idea has roots in established, well researched child development theory.
Many children are visual learners. They excel in recognition and recollection when given the opportunity to visualize activities and sequences. For example, telling a younger child that a flower had 4 pretty pink petals will not conjure or fix that image in their mind the way that showing them a picture of that flower would.
Providing a medium (especially where language and reading are limited in younger children) that delivers a visual and immediate explanation of a sequence or task, is the fastest way for children to associate steps in a process, or changes that may happen during their day. The use of visual learning in schools is understood to enhance thinking and learning skills. Older children use visual learning techniques to focus on the meaning of something, reorganize or group similar ideas, and overall make better use of their visual memory.
Every Do-N-Slide comes with:
- Do-N-Slide Board
- 20 Preprinted Cards
- 6 Blank Cards
- 7 Day of the Week Cards
- Durable Plastic Storage Pocket
Of course, some children have a greater predisposition to visual learning, however Do-N-Slide employs this fundamental principle and applies it to common situations where a majority of children and parents will achieve some benefit.
