Chalk Talk: How Can I Help My Child Develop Critical Thinking Skills?
Basically, critical thinking denotes the ability to organize and synthesize information for yourself. Instead of just accepting what you are told, you check things and work it out for yourself. When your child goes through that “why” phase turn the tables and ask them for their opinion. “What do you think?” Play a game with your child that requires that s/he compares items and determines the differences and similarities. This activity is comparing and contrasting and it is an activity that will enhance critical thinking skills. Read stories that leave you hanging at the end, with no conclusion. Ask your child to make up a conclusion. What does s/he think would happen? These are excellent ways to help your child develop critical thinking skills. Ask lots of questions to get your child to think and get creative.
