  • Ten games and exercises to improve your children’s concentration

    Lack of concentration during the school year is the main cause of decreased student performance. Empty hours in front of an open book can mean getting stuck in a subject or even, in the worst-case scenario, killing young people’s motivation. Attention span is a skill that children develop as they get older. Even so, this quality can be trained. There are several methods to make it as effective as possible.

    Games and exercises to develop the ability to concentrate:

    Follow the needle of the clock: as if it were a game, try to follow the clock’s hands as long as possible. It is a simple exercise that can be practiced wherever you are.

    Isolate sounds: at first glance, it seems easy, but it is not. The first step towards concentration is to isolate yourself from the constant murmur that surrounds you. If you manage to empty your mind and listen only to the sound you have chosen to isolate, it will be easier to hear only your thoughts when you study.

    Word search: this is a clear example of pushing noise and distractions aside to focus on a target, in this case, words. This lesson can be applied to both study and work.

    Sudokus: these are mentally stimulating exercises, like crossword puzzles, that work on the brain like physical activity on the body. Among their mental benefits are the stimulation of logic, memory, and reasoning and the training of the ability to concentrate.

    Copying drawings and drawings with numbers: to draw, you need to be present and pay attention. You have to be in the world around you and be aware of your internal and external environment. This process requires a degree of concentration compared to what you need when studying. In the case of drawings with numbers, the difficulty lies in following the numbers without discounting while having a global and overall view of the drawing that is created little by little as you join the dots.

    Puzzles: playing with and arranging the pieces, making you look at them, observing them, and analyzing them by comparing them with the rest to see where they fit according to their shape, color, drawing. In addition, if you do not have the model to be built in front of you, puzzles exercise your visual memory.

    Memory or matching games: as the name suggests, in these games, it is essential to have a good memory to obtain the maximum number of pairs. You will win if you can concentrate on the cards your opponents have picked up and remember which picture or word was underneath.

    Search for differences: this activity requires special attention to small details to detect the differences. When you face this kind of test, looking at the whole picture will not help you, you must break it down and divide it into smaller sectors.

    Board games: Most board games require planning a strategy and knowing how to improvise according to the steps taken by your opponents. Therefore, it is important to keep your mind alert.

    Construction games have a great educational value as they favor motor development and work and improve hand-eye coordination. In addition, they increase the child’s intelligence, creativity, and concentration.
