Global Goals to Teach Your Children
Everyone loves the adorable characters from Thomas & Friends, right? Starting now, Thomas & Friends is helping promote videos to help parents and children discuss education idea and topics by the use of global goals.
The hopeful outcome for the global goals is that it gives every child the ability to have a quality education with the potential for lifetime learning as well.
Talk to your child about the importance of learning.
Encourage them to want to learn and to find out how to make learning fun and interesting. Using their imagination and creativity is always a great combo for learning fun!
Use conversation starts to talk to your child about what they watched on the Thomas videos.
If you want to know what your child watched and how they interpreted it, just ask them! Use conversation starter questions like, “Why do you think it’s hard for some children to be able to go to school?”
Conversation starters are a great way to talk about difficult topics that your child may not fully understand.
Let your child teach you with “playful learning”.
Sit back and let your child take over for the day. They get to decide what to do, what to learn and even teach you a few things along the way!
