altAs a mother, I understand every parents desire to help their children achieve their full potential. Through my personal experience, I have realized that children love learning when they get to hold something and take action during the activity. 

Involving the children keeps them motivated to learn.  I started making visual activities for my three children. I would stay up late at night finding suitable images. Printing… laminating… cutting each picture and placing velcro on the backs of each one. Whew! So exhausting! I would spend hours in my kitchen snipping away. My kids were always very enthusiastic to see new activities because they really enjoyed learning with the resources I made for them. 

Then I realized that I wanted to make these activities for others. Those parents who couldn’t find the time due to today’s hectic and busy lives. Those parents who were not computer literate. The same with all the professionals and carers. I thought to myself “Wouldn’t it be great to just find the resources… ready made, and purchase them! On your way and ready to go and teach your children!”.

Children have different ways of learning. It is estimated that 80% of what we learn is through our vision. Children who are primarily visual learners tend to get information through reading books and they can also learn more from pictures and other visual materials. These people learn through watching and it is believed to be the most dominant and influential learning style. 

Many traditional classrooms are geared towards the visual learner. Telling these learners how to do something may not make sense to them at all. They need to SEE it!
