Creative Furniture for Schools, A More Interesting Approach In Modern Education

When I was a child and attending school I couldn’t remember that I really enjoyed my days in pre-school and elementary.  What I do remember are brown long chairs and tables squeezing and sitting with my classmate next to each other. The colors surrounding me are too dark like brown, black and plain white making me sleepy all the time.  The shape of the furniture where I can see the unsafe nail pinned is mostly rectangular, including the blackboard. And don’t forget your old terror teacher on her thick eyebrows.

Nowadays as I take my niece to school, I get surprised how education becomes more interesting and fun. The rectangular table that I usually see has an innovative design that is appropriate for fun and learning. My teacher’s brown table has a brighter color now and with a character on it. My working table that is used to be dull and small has now more room for a child to move when doing activities like coloring, writing or painting and it is so light that  it can be placed easily anywhere . The X-Box console is placed in a designed friendly kiosk. The bookshelf is very inviting, making you want to read and read.

Improving Your Children Psychomotor Skills Through Interactive Tools

One of the most difficult and yet exciting days for us parents is to bring our child to school for the first time. To see them in their uniforms and bags is just overwhelming, despite the fact that it’s often challenging to convince them that school is actually more fun than scary. But how do we encourage these precious little ones that it’s fun and important to go to school?

You may want to try some of the things I learned (through experience) to encourage children to love school and learning. Remind them that:

  • Going to school means learning together with friends
  • Going to school will allow them to play at the playground after class
  • They will be rewarded or treated by going to school

What I believe is, the most important thing that a parent should know is that convincing their children to go to school is not a sole responsibility. When you talk, the children’s understanding on what you say may not be understood well. Remember, they don’t think the way we do. Shouting at them or even pinching them won’t really help but in fact scare them away.

I think, another effective way to help them feel good about going to school is to tour them around school before attending classes. Let them enjoy the facilities; do not let them start with books right away.

We bring our children to school and pay for their tuition to make sure that their future will be bright. If the school ambiance is not appealing and conducive for learning then we will fail no matter how much money and effort we invest.

Good books and good teachers make an important contribution to the child’s learning progress. And so does safe furniture, murals and colorful surroundings play a very important factor in inviting children to attend school. Take a look at these photos.
