Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Early primary children present a unique challenge to educators. They are eager to learn, to find out, to do, to shape, and to create. Children are learning information through eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and fingers. They are assimilating knowledge, perceiving patterns, and acquiring a language, probably at a rate they will never equal again (Rogers, 1969). It is the responsibility of the classroom teacher to provide the atmosphere and academic challenges which will nurture these young learners. Many young children have the ability to transfer knowledge from one area to another, and it is important to begin early to develop the gifts and talents of these children (White, 1985).
