Abacus

Abacus & mental arithmetic courses for children above 3 years

The abacus, also called a counting frame, is a calculating tool used primarily in parts of Asia for performing arithmetic processes. Today, abacus are often constructed as a bamboo frame with beads sliding on wires, but originally they were beans or stones moved in grooves in sand or on tablets of wood, stone, or metal. The abacus was in use centuries before the adoption of the written modern numeral system and is still widely used by merchants, traders and clerks in Asia, Africa, and elsewhere.

Why it is important?

  • The Abacus, not just performs the function of a calculator but also trains and harnesses the potential of the human brain in the process.
  • The Abacus when used over a period of time with practice becomes a mental calculator for children.
  • Over a period of time the child becomes a specialist in numerical and arithmetical skills.
  • The Abacus system of learning involves the harnessing of the left hemisphere of the brain that is logical and the right hemisphere of the brain that is intuitive.
  • Gradually the Abacus tool is withdrawn and the child relies solely on calculating functions like addition, subtraction, multiplication and division mentally

Calligraphy

Calligraphy is the art of forming beautiful symbols by hand and arranging them well.

It’s a set of skills and techniques for positioning and inscribing words so they show integrity, harmony, some sort of ancestry, rhythm and creative fire.

The dictionary definition of calligraphy is ‘handwriting or penmanship’, or simply ‘beautiful writing’. The word has its root in the Greek language. ‘Kalli’ means beautiful and ‘graphia’ is the Greek word for writing.

It is therefore the visual art of writing. A more contemporary definition of calligraphy goes like this: ‘the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious and skilful manner’.

It is the design and execution of lettering with a broad tip instrument or brush in one stroke (as opposed to built up lettering, in which the letters are drawn.)

Phonetics

Phonetics is associated with the pronunciation of words in English language. The word phonetics is derived from the Greek term ‘Phone’ means sound or acoustics or voice. The phonetics in English language is represented in symbols. These symbols are called as IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet).These symbols are enclosed with slashes. Normally every human being is able to produce the word or sound with the help of speech organs that are lips and tongue.

Why is it important to learn phonetics?

Many times we can see that many words would not be similar with reference to its pronunciation and written form. For example the letter /f/ can be written as

  • ‘f’ as in frame,
  • ’ph’ as in photograph
  • ’gh’ as in enough

Knowledge of phonetics would help us to pronounce each word correctly as it is supposed to sound. When children learn the same at a young age, they get more clarity on the right pronunciation.

Key Benefits of learning phonetics

  • Children learn to pronounce correctly
  • Effective communication skills develop.
  • English is the most widely used language in the world. Learning it correctly at a young age is important.
  • Children develop confidence when they know their articulation is perfect.
  • They get to learn faster and better with this additional clarity.

It is important for parents to encourage their children to learn phonetics at the right age itself, so that they do not face difficulties in oral and spoken English in future.

Kids Concepts is soon launching weekend courses in Phonetics to benefit all children to strengthen the basics of English pronunciation, thereby improve their communication quality effectively. Stay tuned for more information or register to be updated once the course is launched shortly.

Handwriting

Our handwriting is very personal, a part of our self-image and an expression of our personality, just as the way we dress and present ourselves. We all have a view on how our handwriting appears to others and would sometimes like that image to be different!
