Re: Feedback on Shichida Method

Hi all,

I am keen to send my kids to learn at Shichida. Although at their preschool, they are doing spelling, simple dictation, maths, reading, I would like my kids to improve the use of their "right brain", just for enrichment :D

Does anyone have any comments about the results, effectiveness and what exactly are they going to learn about? Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!


My boy attended Shichida classes since 14 months old. He loves it and we do home practice every weekday. Using the right brain to learn things at a young age is very effective indeed. That's why we've decided to homeschool through Kindergarten as well, and attend only Shichida once a week, and music class once a week.

Before enrolling for the class, I didn't simply believe its claims. I asked around for testimonials from mums whose children have been with the method for at least a year. And checked online for more testimonials from mums' blogs, especially those who do home practice. The centers usually have a big file of parents' testimonials too.

After enrolling, understanding the method properly and practicing diligently, we're all happy with the method. Even hubby is very supportive because he's amazed at how fast and easily our little boy learns, while being happy, emotionally-sensitive (good EQ) and well-behaved.

The method firstly teaches the parent how to be a good parent, how to show love effectively to the child. Then the child will learn with ease and be well-behaved too.

I simply guided my boy to learn through fun and play using the method, without expecting any results. (If you expect to see results or try to test what the child knows, he'd be put off or frustrated.) His language, memory, singing skills are very good for a 2+ year old, at least in my eyes. My wish is for him to acquire skills for self-directed learning, then formal schooling in future would be easy and enjoyable, leaving him more time to enjoy his passion and do community work, etc. So far, the Shichida Method is bringing us there.

Mievee, where are the Shicida schools? I'm also thinking of sending DD for Shicida classes but need to find out more abt it first...But DD is 4 yo, is it too late?

Btw, is the course very ex? Cos we are single-income family, got tight budget.

Hi all. My dd has just started her 1st shichida lesson early last month. She is 26mo now. I do home practice with her since last week. My aim is to do it everyday. I bought a few sets of flashcards from tensai store. As as now I have only flashed cards to her. Would like to learn more from all parents here. I will try to do some flashcards this week. Can someone advise me what type of paper should i use

Hi mummies,
My 19 mths boy also attended e class about 6mths, but recently rest at half-way side due to other issue..so far since I let him join e class, I almost flash everyday, however not practice in other activities. As dot flash card, I think was still too hard to get him full attention on it, it made me frustrated. Any mummies have any good advice on Dot cards?

Btw, I tried other enrichment classes other than shichida method during his halfway rest time. Then I found that almost no ONE can compare with shichida that usefulness in every minutes of e class that my boy attended. No choice need to wait for available class....hence, I will support shichida from now here on until my boy turn older as ten. Haha! Anyone have any idea regarding this method? Coz I quite new around this forum.

Hi Mummies,

I'm pretty new to Shichida. My boy attended only 2 lessons. So far so good. He's 19 months now. I'm waiting to attend the Home Practice Guidance on 2nd May 2012 to learn more about home practice. Hope to find some like-minded mummies to share some thoughts on home practices!
