Why We Should Develop Both Sides Of The Brain Hemispheres In Kids

Children At Work Using The JELIC multiple intelligence puzzle boxes.
It consists of 450 learning boxes with over 3000 multiple intelligence games! 
The Left Brain And The Right Brain

If you are a left brain person, you are more logical and analytical. The left brain is responsible for language ability, math and planning.

If you are a right brain person, you are more creative. The right brain is responsible for imagination, fantasies, dreams and emotional responses.

Do you know which part of the brain your child uses more? In conventional education in schools, quite often programmes of learning are focussed on the left hemisphere while the right hemisphere is neglected.

I spoke to Jane Lim of Sunshine Thinkers and she told me that it is equally important to develop both sides of the brain hemispheres in children. This is because the human brain works best when both sides of the brain are well-developed. Children's full potential can be harnessed by cultivating and developing both sides of their brains.

Developing both sides of the brain hemispheres help kids to...

  1. Sharpen their observation skills
  2. Improve manipulation and fine motor skills
  3. Enhance curiosity for discovery
  4. Build up self confidence
  5. Develop good people skills
That is why she has a programme at Sunshine Thinkers called JELIC. JELIC, an educational programme for 3-5 year olds, has a comprehensive curriculum based on hands-on experiences with various types of manipulatives to enhance children's capacity for procedural and creative thinking. 

If you have any enquiries about this programme, do leave a comment in the comment box.
