Hi there - you make a great point when you say 'Thinking in whole pictures is actually a wonderful ability – it is just not appreciated in traditional lessons.' As a teacher, I agree that our most creative thinkers are often not the children who sit quietly and learn in the 'traditional', way (quietly memorizing etc.) There are so many needs and such high numbers in classrooms today, that it is a struggle to address all of the different styles all of the time (consider the implications of preparing, evaluating and tidying up a meal for thirty a few times a day...) but it is a noble cause. Parents are smart to provide learning opportunities and activities at home when they can be interactive and fun.

Ida, thanks for your comment and sharing your experiences in the classroom! I agree about it being so helpful when parents involve themselves with their children's learning at home.
