Does how we phrase learning matter?
Check out both of these statements: ‘Let’s learn the letter G!’ and ‘Let’s draw giant versions of letter G!’ Which invites more wonder?
Over 15 years as a primary school classroom teacher and six years as a dad I have learned a handful of solid strategies and techniques that help promote learning.
A big key that is often overlooked is how we phrase invitations to learn. In the statements above there is a subtle yet important distinction. One statement includes the word ‘learn’, the other does not.
Children are learning all the time, irrespective of anything that we do. From day one, and even before, it is in the substance of a little, wee human to use their genetic make-up and the sensory equipment, to do nothing but learn.
We are born curious, so when launching in with an invitation like, ‘Let’s learn…’ it ends up being rather redundant and not much of an invitation at all.
Once the hook is set…
Changing the offer to ‘Let’s draw giant…’ and immediately there is a bit of wonder injected. It reeks of possibilities. Once the hook is set, it opens doorways wide to exploring the finer details like letter names and sounds from within the context of something that engages like drawing, creating, building etc…
In this video tutorial, where my son Elliot, age 6, and I demonstrate how to draw giant upper and lower case versions of letter G we spend a mountain of time meandering around words like ‘grass’, ‘grapes’ and ‘orange’. I decide to try and plant grass in my shading of G and Elliot chooses the colours, purple and orange for his letter. Our choices inspire further connections with the colour purple being a common colour of grapes. The sound and position of the letter in ‘orange’ and differences with the sound of G in the words ‘grass’ and ‘grapes’. We end up chatting about the location of the letter and how the sound changes flavour when other letters are kicking around.
Lost in wonder…
We finish our drawing of our giant letter G’s and Elliot is lost in wonder, gazing at the colourful result. He immediately wants to frame his learning by adding it to his bedroom wall. I am chuffed that he enjoyed the experience and marvel at the truck load of learning we achieved.
Next time you volley an invitation to learn, try mixing it up. Get creative with your serve. Give it a little more edge, a little more wonder and let the learning flow.
