Adaptive Math Programs

Adaptive Math Programs

Mathematics and numeracy skills are important skills for everyday life and work, especially in the world we are living today.

Within the Shichida curriculum, mathematics and numeracy section is adapted for the children’s age and concentration span. Other than providing basic mathematics knowledge and appreciation, the Shichida early learning program also develops problem solving skills for children.

While others may think of mathematics education as a way to teach problem solving, with Shichida’s adaptive math programs for children, we teach them how to use different tools to approach and appreciate mathematics.  Especially in the older years, our maths learning program will encourage some degree of creativity or originality from the children.

The way Shichida applies adaptive math for children, just to name a few, is that we provide input and encourage output through flashcards, memory techniques, hands-on activities and pattern recognition games.

As much as the Shichida early learning brain training program is for children from 0 to 9 years-old, our program is also to help parents be their child’s first and best teacher.

Unlike other maths learning centres, Shichida presents numeracy as something we see relevant in our daily life. Children can get to know and acquire the knowledge of numbers through their daily activities. It is also about presenting mathematics to children like a puzzle or a problem to solve together. From a very young age, children can be introduced to numbers and quantities through songs and objects at home.

In our program for preschoolers, we introduce pattern play too because it trains the children to look at and process information from different angles.  Throughout our early learning curriculum, memory games is part of our adaptive maths program too. Our memory games and techniques are a key part of the Shichida brain training program. This in turn helps information processing, retention and recalling easy and applicable in many areas for the children going forward.

Some tips for numeracy, pattern play and memory activities that you can easily do with your child at home:

    With any kind of food or object at home, think how it can be something to count. For example, look at a bunch of bananas and ask, “How many bananas are there?” and count them, “One, Two, Three…” or create a question when you are buying potatoes, saying, “I’m going to put six potatoes in the bag.”

    Making patterns with objects at home: toys, fruits, biscuits. For example, say the circle represents a grape and the triangle represents a biscuit.  Place a few pieces of the grapes and biscuits in the following pattern.  Leave a gap at where it is marked ().  Ask your child if a grape or a biscuit should be there. 

    Play a memory game with your child with objects at home:

    At Shichida, we will encourage parents to adapt mathematics to your child’s interest.  Using items or toys of interest and incorporating mathematical concepts into their daily lives is key! Mathematics is more than just a subject at school.

    Remember as we always say at Shichida, if you can engage the hearts of your child, you can engage their minds.

    What makes Shichida different from the rest?

    Shichida is a world-renowned teaching method backed by more than 60 years of evolving research into early childhood brain development.

    The curriculum is age-specific, tailored to children’s attention spans and brain capabilities. At Shichida Australia, we fill in the gaps left by traditional education systems to equip our students with well-rounded skills that they can use for the rest of their lives.

    The Shichida Method is unique in that it also teaches skills most often associated with the right brain such as empathy, creativity, intuition, imaging and photographic memory. With all the research behind us, we invite parents into the classroom to learn how to become their child’s first and best teacher.

    Parents share their Shichida early learning centre experience…

    “My son joined Shichida when he was 5 years old. My husband and I are both very happy with his progress. Now my son is a happy, positive and confident child who loves and enjoys learning. After attending Shichida early learning classes, we realised that the program not only benefits the child, but also teaches parents how to raise a child happily and successfully.”

    – Miranda & Daniel (son, Shichida Graduate 2016)

    “Thank you for the wonderful experiences that you have given Luke over the last 7 years at Shichida. The skills he has learnt through Shichida will last through his entire life. You have really helped and encouraged Luke to achieve such great things… Shichida has been such a huge part of our lives, we will really miss it.”

    – Mark, Emily & Luke (son)

    “I’ve noticed my daughter does remember things quite well, she can listen to songs only a few times and she remembers the tunes and the lyrics. She is one of the few kids in her class who can read at her age. Callum can count to 10. He sings the alphabet and he knows his colours and his shapes. He will sing along, it’s just play for him. There’s not that many programs out there for young kids, and you know why not? It doesn’t hurt them and they enjoy it. It does help them to develop to the best of their potential and their ability. They do an amazing amount of stuff in that one hour that I could not do at home with them.”

    – Jane, Caitlyn (daughter) & Callum (son)

    “Chloe has been attending Shichida Australia since she was 18 months old. I first heard about it on TV and thought it looked like an interesting program – mainly because it worked on skills like visualisation techniques, fine motor skills, confidence building and fun aspects of learning that didn’t seem to be offered in any other activities.This has really stimulated her learning, improved her concentration and helped her prepare for the transition to school. Shichida also gave us the tools to be able to incorporate opportunities for learning into everyday life – this has been incredibly helpful. The first time we realised that Chloe knew her numbers and letters was when my husband was out washing the car. He could hear her mumbling away and went to check up on her. She was just two at the time, and was reading our car’s licence plate!”
