Any methods to train kids on critical thinking skills?

Postby cheerfulmummy » Fri Feb 22, 2013 2:51 pm

Hello, I want to train my child to learn how to solve problems and challenges from young. My child is 5 years old.

Anyone mind to share some tips/recommendations? :smile:

Thank you.

If your child can ask Why for every question, and you can give half the answer, and get your child to find the other half, you have a good start.

Hi, you can start teaching your kid to play some simple games like puzzles, brainteasing quiz etc. Very useful! : :smile:

just one last thing which I forgot to add in - these programmes have proven that our kids will be able to transfer these critical thinking skills into their academic work, their decision making arenas, and especially in their lives. In short, the transferability of these learnt skills have been proven through research in these programmes which I am offering.

Hi,

I heard of a good enrichment centre at Bukit Timah that specialises in teaching critical thinking skills to kids, pri-jc level. You can check it out, the teachers all supposedly hold postgrad qualifications. Looks good!
