In Abacus Education, both sides of the brain are functioning. The left side of the brain is responsible for logic, science and mathematics while the right side concerns more on symbols, images, and the imagination. It is important to have the brain function more in the early stage of a child’s life.
Alizah, one of M.Zed students that is doing Abacus Lessons. She is currently in Grade 2 and is now progressing steadily with her Abacus calculations.
In Abacus lessons, concentration and focus are developed.
In this the right side of the brain is really functioning and when they do the math the left side of the brain is also functioning.
The whole brain is really put in the move.
Happy Wednesday everyone!!
Abacus calculations should be done routinely in order for your fingers to get used to the movement of the numbers.
In Anzan (Mental Calculation), students will be moving their fingers often corresponding to the numbers being done.
In this practice, the right brain which functions more on imagination is stimulated thus having both side of the brain work.
It would always bring joy to a child if she achieves something.
Today Rye finished her HOP book and is now starting the first few pages of her STEP book.
Happy Weekend Everyone!!
But before IPPO students officially start their weekend, they do Abacus Lessons for an hour first.
Students determine their goals and try to accomplish it before the lesson ends.
Some students do really finish their goal but some can’t.
In IPPO, we respect every student drive. Abacus learning is not a competition, the important thing is for the students to completely comprehend what he/she is doing in class.
Despite the rain, these kids still manage to come to IPPO.
Try Group students are busy doing their thing. Derek is currently finishing his STEP book.
Willian on the other shall focus on her Multiplication Table.
Students in Timer and Test Group are busy completing their sheets with the allotted of 30 minutes.
In Abacus Education the finger movement is really important. Two fingers are being used; the thumb for addition and the index finger for subtraction.
