TEACHER'S TIPS FOR THE FOSTERING OF ACTIVE ATTENTION

  • The fostering of active attention should be regular and systematic.
  • Exercises with the pupils should be carried out every day, for cca. 15 minutes.
  • Do the exercises continuously nd alternate between all important fields of learning (motoric functions, reading and speech, language, writing, perceptions)..
  • At least one exercise for auditory or visual attention should be carried out on a daily basis.
  • Repeat those exercises that the pupils have not fully grasped yet, and thus teach them endurance for finishing a certain task or activity.
  • Feel free to upgrade the exercises and adapt them according to the children's level of development.
  • The exercises are meant to be merely a framework and a source of ideas which you can build on according to your own imagination.

 

THE EXERCISES CAN BE USED:

  • for initial motivation,
  • for a break between studying,
  • as a relaxing activity,
  • as a motivational lift,
  • for calming down before tests,
  • as the closing part of a lesson,
  • as a means of making the lesson more interesting,
  • for cooperative studying among pupils,
  • for working in groups, pairs or individually …

These exercises are not meant to be trouble or extra work but should be seen as a time for pleasure and relaxation – not only for pupils but also for the teacher!
