Below is an exciting bit of information about how Mosaic Art can help certain Children!
How Mosaic Art Assists Childrens’ Learning Abilities
Spatial and visual organisation (basics of geometry)
Fine motor skills
Coordinating a child’s thoughts and actions
Hand and eye coordination – extremely important step to help a child achieve difficult tasks easily, including reading and writing
Correlation between seeing and doing (sight and touch senses)
Math skills as the child learns about basic calculations, surface area, the best way to break down a larger area into smaller ones, shapes, spatial visualisation
Skills children will need to learn to read and write
Language skills as the child listens and follows instructions and talks about what they are doing
Creative self expression
In addition to the above, larger community projects teach:
Peer to peer interaction (subtly helps children to understand the relationships between people while learning to deal with them effectively)
Cooperative learning strategies
That a child is one of many, each as valuable as the other
That a whole is made up of many parts – each one valid, each one value-adding
That a child’s voice is heard, valid and celebrated
How does mosaic art help the teacher/parent/caregiver?
Making mosaics provides an opportunity for formal learning experiences
The care provider can watch children work alone or in groups
They can monitor they way in which the children speak, move and concentrate
It allows for observation of a child to assess their development
It also allows for the care provider to understand what interests the child has, what engages them and why
Most importantly, kids love it!!
