EDC301: Children Gain A Further Ability To Comprehend The World Around Them If Taught About Different Textures. Learning Opportunities: Tesol And Foreign Language Teaching Assignment, UOC, Ireland

Children gain a further ability to comprehend the world around them if taught about different textures. Learning opportunities that involve the use of textural plays are important as they help in thesic psychological development that involves understanding basic sensations like fluffy an bad prickly.

According to Nekitsing et al. (2019), Texture play teaches children what different objects feel like against their skin to communicate as their ability for verbal communication does not develop before a certain age. It further helps in the development of motor skills, cognitive skills, and observation skills.

At a young age, children’s ability to associate words with texture is not fully developed. Therefore, textural play creates a bridge between the sensation and the word associated with it. For example, when a parent addresses a child by saying, “The jumper feels fluffy and soft on the skin”, it helps the child to associate the words ‘soft’ and ‘fluffy’ with the texture of the jumper.

As Nel, Joubert, and Hartell (2017) put it, the understanding, gaining, and reacting capability to the motor and sensory experiences are promoted by textual play among pre-schoolers. Ireland specializes in introducing various forms of pre-schooler teaching practices. Brain research, it is confirmed that basic brain development is the fastest during the initial five years of life when the initial neuron connections are developed. These connections determine the future learning abilities of a child.
