É importante estar com as crianças e brincar com elas. A cada vez que elas falarem algo "errado" o ideal é não corrigi-las, mas repetir a palavra corretamente. Por exemplo, se a criança fala "ga" vocë pode dizer "sim, o gato". É fundamental que elas possam ouvir bem os adultos, para não ficarem em dúvida quanto à palavra. – nairags

Why does my toddler love repetition? Paediatric speech and language therapist.

A repetição ajuda as crianças a aprender informações novas. Uma criança que pede toda noite a mesma história, por exemplo, está aprendendo novo vocabulário a cada fez que ouve o que foi dito. Uma criança que ouve a mesma história 3 vezes tem muito mais facilidade para aprender novo vocabulário do que uma criança que ouve 3 histórias diferentes. – nairags

It may test your patience when your toddler demands 'Row, row, row your boat' for the 10th time.

Why does my toddler love repetition?

But there's a good reason for her insistence. Toddlers love repetition because it helps them to learn, and because it's familiar and comforting. From around the age of two, you will notice your toddler repeating the same words and phrases constantly. Let's Talk. What do babies need in order to learn and thrive?

Let's Talk

One thing they need is conversation — responsive, back-and-forth communication with their parents and caregivers. This interactive engagement is like food for their developing brains, nurturing language acquisition, early literacy, school readiness, and social and emotional well-being. A dispiriting number of children don’t get that kind of brain-fueling communication, research suggests. In early childhood policy (and in the wider media), much attention has been paid to the so-called word gap — findings that show that low-income children hear 30 million fewer words, on average, and have less than half the vocabulary of upper-income peers by age three.

Listen to Your Mother. Young children face a remarkable challenge in learning to use the language of their culture.

Toddlers vary widely, however, in the rate at which they learn new words.1 A team of Harvard Graduate School of Education researchers set out to ask whether and how children's language environment can impact vocabulary development. In their study of mother-child pairs from low-income families, they found that mothers who used many different words (not just many words) had toddlers with faster growth in vocabulary use.

Interessante para pensar na contribuição da neurociência para a educação. A moça tinha várias dificuldades (espaciais, temporais, entender ironia etc.) e chegou a tentar suicídio. Mas depois entrou na faculdade de filosofia e conheceu Luria e outro teórico. Ela percebeu que poderia fazer exercícios para exercitar o cérebro. Desde então, foi desenvolvendo novos exercícios e moldando seu cérebro. A neuplasticidade pode mudar o modo como encaramos o cérebro, as dificuldades no aprendizado e como como aprendemos em geral. É possível transformar um cérebro adulto. – nairags

How do you speak 'Motherese'? How young children learn English as another language. By Opal Dunn, educational consultant and author Introduction Young children are natural language acquirers; they are self-motivated to pick up language without conscious learning, unlike adolescents and adults.

They have the ability to imitate pronunciation and work out the rules for themselves. Any idea that learning to talk in English is difficult does not occur to them unless it’s suggested by adults, who themselves probably learned English academically at a later age through grammar-based text books. Alison Gopnik: What do babies think?

Os bebês são tão inteligentes quanto cientistas. Eles criam hipóteses e as testam para chegar a conclusões. Quanto mais infância tem uma espécie, mais desenvolvida ela é (exemplo do corvo-da-nova-caledônia e da galinha). Crianças de 4 anos são melhores para pensar em hipóteses improváveis do que adultos. Enquanto os adultos têm uma atençao focada (lanterna), os bebês não conseguem deixar de prestar atençao em tudo (refletor). Ser um bebê "é como estar apaixonado em Paris pela primeira vez depois de ter tomado dois expressos duplos". – nairags

Patricia Kuhl: The linguistic genius of babies. What Parents Can Gain From Learning the Science of Talking to Kids. The widening education gap between the rich and the poor is not news to those who work in education, many of whom have been struggling to close the gap beginning the day poor children enter kindergarten or preschool.

But one unlikely soldier has joined the fight: a pediatric surgeon who wants to get started way before kindergarten. She wants to start closing the gap the day babies are born.
