The development of abstract thinking in children Automatic translate
Regarding abstract thinking - that is, the ability to freely manipulate images and symbols - there are two opposing opinions. Some argue that this is akin to a rumor - either it is or it is not. Others, on the contrary, are convinced that abstract thinking can and should be developed. Moreover, the sooner you start, the better.
There are many ways to develop a child’s imagination and abstract thinking. And all of them, first of all, will require certain skills from you. No, you don’t need anything specific: no special knowledge, no devices. Only your own imagination. Indeed, if you do not show your child an interesting example, how will he cope with the task that you set for him?
There are many options for studying with a child. The first is the training of abstract thinking in the clouds. Every time you see a cloud in the sky with a specific shape - ask the baby what it looks like. Do not expect the child to immediately begin to give out various ideas (this can also be, but this is rare). Help the baby at first. Tell us how you see this cloud and why. Make up a story why an elephant cloud floats through the sky at sunset. Look at the clouds every walk, and soon your child will begin to tell you what he sees and come up with whole stories about it.
The second simple way to work on the development of abstract thinking with a child is the shadow theater. Sit down in the evening in a darkened room near the lamp and try to create various shapes from your hands. Talk with your child about what happens. Let the baby try to portray something. It is simple and interesting. Over time, you will be able to play entire performances with detailed plots.
And finally, the third method, although not the most popular among parents, but still it has the right to life. Do not forbid your child to play computer games. No, we do not advise you to leave the baby at the computer for the whole day. But to allocate for him some time is quite possible. For example, anime games , help the child develop logical and abstract thinking, coordination and ability to plan their actions. Indeed, in order to complete the task in the game, the baby must correctly understand its essence and build its own concept of achieving the goal. Moreover, he will constantly work precisely with abstract symbols and logical chains.
