Event registration continues now through the end of February for ALOHA’s Vocab Bee, held in 18 states across the U.S. this spring, which creates a fun an educational setting for children to learn new vocabulary words in a creative way - info at http://alohamindmath.com/vocab. Competition, in a controlled educational setting, can be a fun way to help children build self-confidence. Each center is holding the Vocab Bee in May/June.
Studies have shown that children have a natural tendency to compete, which starts around age 4-5. If this natural tendency is channeled, it can help kids develop useful skills and learn to handle pressure. For some children, events like spelling bees and sporting events are great fun, for others they can be stressful. In a supportive atmosphere, competition can help outgoing children channel their energies, and shyer children learn a set of skills that can help build their self-esteem. “ALOHA’s Vocab Bee is a creative, interactive way to help children become more confident in trying and using new words, and in growing their vocabulary,” said Mani Manickavelu, President and CEO of ALOHA Mind Math.
Public educational competitions such as spelling bees and math Olympiads also encourage children to participate in something larger than their own day to day progress. It can be fun for a group of children in an educational setting to participate and work towards a larger goal together. The positive reinforcement of a structured competition can help kids learn to focus their energies, and learn to prepare for a larger goal while having fun along the way. Setting a target and working towards a goal is a great lesson for children of all ages.
