Hand-eye coordination development process 3?
4 months: Babies begin to learn to look at their hands and identify immediate goals.
7 months: catch what you want with your hand.
Babies before half a year old do not sit. When lying down and playing with toys or other items, in many cases, the baby’s eyes cannot see the items on the hand, and the range of motion of the hand does not cross the field of vision.
After half a year old, the baby already has the ability to sit, so his eyes can monitor his hands to play with items. At this time, the range of motion of the hand and the field of vision cross, but the hand-eye coordination ability is still poor.
9 months: Baby can use his eyes to find things falling from his hands. He likes to hold small sticks to hit items. He especially likes to hit various toys and items that can make sounds.
12 months: Baby has been able to understand the causal relationship between the toy held in his hand and the toy dropped on the ground, so he likes to intentionally throw away the toy held in his hand and watch with his eyes and throw away with his fingerstoy.
1 and a half years old: Baby began to try to paint on paper with a pen and look at books with pictures.
1 and a half years?
2 years old: Baby develops more advanced hand-eye coordination actions, such as being able to raise the building blocks alone, holding a pen to draw long lines on paper, pouring water from one cup to another, and so on.
3 years and older: Baby’s small hand is very flexible, and hand-eye coordination has been greatly developed.
Hand-eye coordination promotion plan ◎ From the moment the baby is born, parents can consciously insert colorful toys or other items suitable for the baby’s grasp into the baby’s little hand, and then raise the little hand to tease the baby to see the items in his hand.
3-4 months baby likes to hit the object in front of him with a small hand, and the hand-eye coordination ability is slightly improved. At this time, the small ball can be hung on the baby’s chest to seduce the baby to tap and grasp.
You can also hang high-pitched toys, such as small bells and wind chimes, slightly higher around the crib. Use a rope to tie the toy at one end, and tie it to the side of the crib where the baby can touch the arm.They will automatically wave their arms, and they will hit the toy as soon as they are waved.
The toy moves or makes a noise, which will cause the baby’s interest, so he will listen with interest, watch and keep waving his arms to touch the rope.
Although the baby’s hands and eyes cannot be consciously coordinated at this stage, this is the inevitable way for the baby to explore the secrets of the hand-eye coordination.
◎ Let the baby lie on the bed or on the table in front of the baby, put the toy in front of the baby to tease him to reach out and grab it. When the baby successfully gets the toy, be sure to encourage him with joy and play the same with him again and againGame, while constantly changing the position of the toy, train the baby to learn visual distance, and adjust the telescopic length of the arm and the tilt of the main shaft according to the distance and angle to grab the toy.
◎ When the baby learns to sit, you can buy some cloth books for the baby, which will not be torn apart, and let the baby flip through. The book turning is one of the excellent activities to train the hand-eye coordination ability.
After 1 year of age, the baby’s hand-eye coordination ability has been better developed. Then, you can buy some toys for your baby to train hand-eye coordination ability, and turn them into hole boards, beading toys, cups, buckets, etc., at least, Playing with building blocks, jigsaw puzzles, playing with sand and water, kneading plasticine, kneading dough, etc. are all excellent activities to train your baby’s hand-eye coordination.
When it’s hot, you can prepare a basin of water for the baby to use plastic bottles and cups to play watering games. You can also set some floating toys for him to capture and chase.
◎ Beginning more than 1 year old, baby started to like graffiti. This kind of enthusiasm can generally reach 3 years old.
The purpose of baby graffiti may not be to draw something, but just like to use pens to paint special words and colors on paper.
Graffiti has greatly enriched the baby’s spiritual life and is also an excellent activity to train hand-eye coordination.
Therefore, when the baby is about 1 year old, he can prepare materials such as pencils, crayons, cardboard, white paper and a place where he can sit, stand and kneel at will, providing him with a comfortable and graffiti environment.
Baby’s initial hand-eye coordination is unconscious, and there are ways to strengthen conscious hand-eye coordination.
For example, you can provide the baby with some pictures of familiar animals, household items and other parts of the baby, let him find the missing parts, and then use the pen to make up pictures.
◎ Babies have different habits and hobbies. Parents should carefully observe their babies, and timely capture the opportunity to develop their hand-eye coordination ability according to their characteristics.
For example, baby is playing with a toy car, and Mummy quietly walks away from this type of car. Baby soon finds that the car is missing a part and crying because of it. Mommy takes the car back, and the baby is happy immediately.
This shows that the baby has noticed that his toy car has been taken away by Mummy.
According to your baby’s situation, you can intentionally expand this game with your baby, such as taking a toy he is playing and letting him find it, and suddenly using a bright toy to shake it in front of his eyes to attract him to followAnd grab and much more.
These fun games can effectively train hand-eye coordination.
◎ Ball games can not only train the baby’s wrist strength, but also train the baby’s hand to control the direction, improve hand-eye coordination, and enhance his ability to respond quickly.
Adults can gently throw the ball to the baby and encourage him to catch it.
This action is more difficult. At the beginning, parents can assist the baby, holding his two hands to help him catch the ball.
After the baby is proficient in catching the ball, he can gradually train him to play the ball step by step, and let him practice receiving the rebounded ball, slap the ball in place, hold up the ball that is bouncing, pat the ball continuously, and relatively roll the ball.Use your fingers to turn the ball and pitch the ball to fully exercise your baby’s hand-eye coordination.
◎ Take the baby to nature to pick up small flowers and grass, pick up small stones, flutter butterflies, catch dragonflies, catch grasshoppers, catch small ants . The diverse environment of nature and changing scenes can bring a lot of surprises to the baby, let himReal hand-eye interaction in those dynamic and dynamic environments.
Tips: The Watershed in Infant Cognitive Ability Well-known Developmental Psychologist Joan?
Piaget designed an authoritative test on the state of intellectual development, the purpose of which is to test the baby’s cognitive ability to perpetuate the object, that is, the object still exists objectively in the hidden state.
The experimenter took a ball and showed it to the baby, then put the ball in a cup, covered it with something, and hidden the ball.
Repeat the demonstration in front of the baby until the baby knows to look for this cup.
After that, place the ball in the second cup, cover it with something, and place the two cups next to each other.
Take care to ensure that the baby has observed in which cup the ball was last hidden.
In which cup do babies go to find the ball?
Babies under the age of 8 months will go to the first cup to find the ball.
Piaget sees this as evidence that the baby is not fully aware of things.
Babies who are 8 months or older can solve this problem and they will go to the second cup to find the ball.
Why does 8 months become a watershed in infant cognitive ability?
Adele, a neuroscientist at the Federal University?
Diamond and his colleagues made a very interesting explanation. They believe that infants’ perception of permanent objects needs to be replaced by two skills: inhibiting their ability to reach into the first cup and remembering that the ballAbility in the second cup.
Both of these abilities are related to increased neural activity, increased brain energy expenditure, and increased use of myelin sheaths in the anterior frontal cortex.
Only when the baby already has self-inhibition, grasping ability and good memory ability, the above-mentioned changes will occur in his brain.
