THE 5 KEYS OF THE CHILDUP EARLY LEARNING MODEL

1. Newborns Are Ready to Succeed at Anything
Any human newborn in good health is ready to learn everything, and be successful and even excel at anything. The thousands of genes of the baby’s brain are like switches just waiting to be turned on (or not!) by experience and the environment. The first years are the most crucial years for the building of the brain which - with around 86 billion neurons eager to connect together - will never be so agile and flexible later in life.

2. Talent Grows with Effort and Practice
The idea that some lucky children may be “gifted” from birth is a pernicious myth. A focus on effort, rather on intelligence or ability, is much more encouraging. Children who think that talent and intelligence are not inborn, but made, get better results in any domain.

3. Parents Are the First Role Models and Teachers of their Children
A strong learning culture in the family and a patient and long-lasting involvement of the parents in the learning process are crucial for the optimal development of their children’s abilities. Parents have a heavy influence on the development, schooling, career and life of their offspring.

4. The Goal Is to Be Fully School Ready
Math and language are essential for the good development of children’s intellectual and social skills, what is a good reason to pay attention to it from day one. Well prepared (advanced) children starting kindergarten and elementary/primary school with solid foundations in math and language will keep this precious advantage for life.

5. Games Are Great Early Learning Tools
Indeed, academic learning is work that requires concentration, discipline, and perseverance. At the same time, in matters of early education, play is as important as work. Since children like playing, and since any game is educational, it’s a good strategy to use play and games as favorite early learning tools… and rewards.

Preschool Math Lesson (#01-A/48)
TEACH YOUR CHILD TO COUNT TO 10
< First Series: Domestic Animals >
Introduction: 10 Domestic Animals

PARENT
- Well, (name of the Child), we are beginning our first math lesson. Today is going to be a very special day. As you will see, learning to count is kind of a game, and we are going to play together. Are you ready to start the game?

CHILD
- Yes, Dad (or Mom)!

PARENT
- Alright then. This one is the very first picture of the game, showing 10 different Domestic Animals. Do you know what a “domestic” animal is? 

At this point, depending on the age and knowledge of the Child, you may have to explain the difference between “domestic” and “wild” animals.

PARENT
- All the animals shown in this picture are domestic animals. I'm sure you know many of them. Can you point to them and tell me their names?

Each time the Child is able to name an animal, ask him/her some questions about it. Give him/her the names of the unknown animals as well as more explanations about them using, if necessary, the information given on the second introduction picture (or from other sources like Wikipedia). You may also give a few examples of wild animals that were domesticated (like wolves which were tamed into dogs.) The main goal of this first lesson is for the Child to learn the names of all the 10 animals, but NOT to count them.

Then, you may end this first lesson with a lot of congratulations to this hard working young learner, and schedule his/her next early math lesson with you.

VERY IMPORTANT TIP
Do not show any of the next pictures to the Child before her/his next early math lesson. The goal is to keep the Child’s curiosity and interest awake all along the successive lessons - posted here every Wednesday and Sunday.

Teach your Child to Count to 10
10 Domestic Animals
Number 1 - The Horse

1 Horse = 1 Animal
#Preschool Math Lesson (#02-A/48)
TEACH YOUR CHILD TO COUNT TO 10
< First Series: Domestic Animals >
The Horse - Number 1

Start this second lesson by asking the Child to recapitulate the names of all the members of the domestic animals discovered in the previous “introduction” lesson.

PARENT (showing the image with the horse)
- So, since you can now recognize all the domestic animals of the first series, we can then look at this new picture. Which animal is this?

CHILD
- A horse.

PARENT
- That's right. This is a horse. This is ONE horse. Can you tell me what both the colors of its coat are?

CHILD
- Brown… and white.

PARENT
- Brown and white are correct. Can you show me its tail?

The Child points the horse’s tail.

PARENT
- Right, this is its tail. Can you show me its legs?

The Child points the horse’s legs.

PARENT
- Right again, those are its legs. Do you know how many legs a horse has?

In this scenario, the Child does not know yet.

PARENT
- Don’t worry. You'll learn it in a few days. By the way, do you know how many legs YOU have?

CHILD
- TWO!

Many young Children will probably be already able to count to two.

PARENT
- That's correct! You have TWO legs. And how many legs do I have?

CHILD
- TWO!

PARENT
- Right again, I have TWO legs, just like you. All human beings have TWO legs, except people who have had an accident, of course.

Depending on the age and emotional and intellectual level of the Child, you may have to answer a few questions here.

PARENT (showing the image with number 1)
- You'll learn very soon how many legs horses have. But for the meantime, I'll show you the first number, the number 1, for ONE horse. Look at the second picture. See? There is a young horse, under a big orange sign. This orange sign is the symbol for number 1. It means ONE, for only ONE horse, or ONE other animal, or ONE object, or ONE person. In this case, ONE horse. Please, repeat after me: Number ONE.

CHILD
- Number ONE.

PARENT
- Please repeat: ONE horse.

CHILD (looking at the picture)
- ONE horse.

PARENT (raising one thumb up)
- ONE thumb.

CHILD
- ONE thumb.

Encourage the Child to raise her or his thumb, imitating you.

Then, repeat the exercise with other single objects around you.

After that, you may end this second lesson with a lot of congratulations to this hard working young learner, and schedule his/her next early math lesson with you.

VERY IMPORTANT TIP
Do not show any of the next pictures to the Child before her/his next early math lesson. The goal is to keep the Child’s curiosity and interest awake all along the successive lessons - posted here every Wednesday and Sunday.
