Learning by doing!

When teaching we need to make the learning experience real for the children, make it alive. We remember better when we use more of our senses, by "experiencing" learning. Solving a problem practically makes us think differently! Take the children out of the class, allow them to do experiments or build items. Allow them to engage and work with the learning material, so that they really understand what they are doing, and so that they can apply that knowledge or experience to another situation. Get them to think!

"Learning from Experience" By Marcia L. Conner provides some interesting thought and ideas!(see the link!)

Make the learning truly meaningful in your classroom, so that the children or students are excited about coming into your teaching space!
