To develop intelligence, to promote thinking
The outstanding Soviet educator Sukhomlinsky said: "The wisdom of a child is at the tip of his finger".
The hands-on operation of young children can effectively develop children's perception. Touch sense is a combination of kinesthetic sense and skin sense, which is of great significance to people's practical activities and the psychological development of children. Spatial perception is the perception of the size, orientation, and shape of objects in space. These psychological activities can only be developed through the children's personal experience. For example, teach children to play with paper birds to develop children's ability to identify the shape and size of triangles and squares.
Conservation is an important sign of the development of children's thinking. According to the famous Swiss psychologist Piaget's theory, this refers to the knowledge that the content of matter remains unchanged when it changes from one form to another. For example, when the liquid in a small-diameter measuring cup is poured into the mouth cup, although the liquid level is lower, it has not decreased, and the solution remains unchanged. A pile of glass balls doesn't increase in number just because you line them up. For four or five-year-olds, the formation of this concept requires training and time. Undoubtedly, it is very necessary for parents to bring their children to play such games for intellectual development.
Children's thinking is based on intuitive action thinking and concrete image thinking. Hands-on training is conducive to the development of children's mental agility and flexibility. Children can change their thinking methods in a timely manner according to the changes of the problem, according to different materials and conditions, and can grasp the essence of the problem in a creative way.
