Motivate Students To Learn

As children leave the kindergarten/ preschool stage, many of them lose the learning pleasure typical of those early years. They may have had challenges in class, or been exposed to older children and heard some of their “school is boring” comments. The smart parent can help counteract this behavior by encouraging children to develop their interests and hobbies and by learning more about the things they are interested in. One method to motivate students to learn is by using articles in magazines or newspapers.

If you get a daily newspaper, teach your child to use it. There is no doubt that they will be motivated to learn how to decipher the television and film lists, but what else do you take for granted? All local newspapers have “Around Town” sections – draw your child’s attention to articles that are important to him. If he’s a railroad enthusiast, have him read about next week’s model train show. If he’s interested in space, read him the latest news from the Hubble telescope.

Magazine articles are another good motivational tool. You can find whole magazines dedicated to your child’s hobby, whether it’s collecting stones or dancing. If your child loves dinosaurs, reading a small boy, like the one who grew up to be a paleontologist, can be very rewarding. Someone who loves animals will be motivated to learn everything after reading about vets.

One thing that motivates almost everyone is money. If your child is fascinated by reading about the lives of people who, because of their salary, are able to travel, drive expensive cars and live in luxury, they may be motivated to get a good education and become rich themselves.
