Early Years Skills
Mardi, 09 Janvier 2018 13:23
2018 0109 eys introEarly Years Skills is brought to you by FIDE in association with Alfiere Bianco and CASTLE. The CASTLE project, created by Alfiere Bianco,  aims to make children the central figures in developmental game playing, progressively developing their sensory-motor capacity.

4-6 EARLY YEARS SKILLS
Through song, dance and games, children in kindergarten learn basic concepts useful for STEM subjects.
This program can best be understood by watching the children during lessons in the 52 videos on our dedicated web site eys.fide.com.

PSYCHOMOTOR & AFFECTIVE
The children are the central figures in developmental game playing, progressively developing their sensory-motor capacity by requiring the use of active intelligence during game activities.
These highly beneficial lessons take place in an exclusive and protected space: the GIANT chessboard. Experience shows that this becomes a magical experience for kids – a bridge between reality and imagination.
Carefully structured game activities heighten children's self-esteem as well as providing a unique opportunity to build relationships with companions based on loyalty, responsibility and partnership.

EARLY YEARS SKILLS - OBJECTIVES FOR THE CHILDREN
Gain command of lateral space and movement to improve time-space organization.
Learn and experiment with single directions - vertical (forward and backwards); horizontal (right and left); diagonal and directions in combination.
Learn letters and numbers through psychomotor experience.
Learn and experiment with different rhythms.
Improve the capacity to concentrate and react to given stimuli.
Develop self-control and command over general possibilities and limitations.
Create a safe environment by respecting the rules.
Develop the capacity to resolve problematic situations.
Form/Develop ‘strategies’.
Enrich vocabulary and expressive precision.
Learn respect and collaboration through team play.
