In the early stages of life, motivation serves as a cornerstone for development, laying the foundation for lifelong learning, growth, and achievement. Harnessing this intrinsic drive in children is essential for fostering curiosity, resilience, and a passion for exploration.

In recent years, educators, parents, and researchers have increasingly turned to games as a powerful tool for igniting motivation and engagement in young learners.

Play is the natural language of childhood a medium through which children explore their surroundings, experiment with ideas, and make sense of the world around them.

Games offer a unique platform for skill development and mastery, providing children with opportunities to practice and refine a wide range of cognitive, social, and emotional skills such as communication, empathy, and teamwork, laying the groundwork for positive relationships and collaborative problem-solving in the future.

We have been using flashcards to practice vocabulary, we have solved puzzles, we have enjoyed memory games, we have played ‘Simon says’ to practice actions and respond to commands, we have listened to storytelling, we have played ‘picture bingo’ to practice correspondence and vocabulary and our young learners have been getting creative with modeling clay.

Moreover, games offer a safe and stimulating space for children to unleash their creativity, express themselves, and pursue their interests with enthusiasm. These motivating games can turn language learning into a fun and exciting adventure for children, helping them develop their English skills while having a great time.

In conclusion, games have emerged as a powerful tool for inspiring and motivating children in their early stages of development. Let’s take advantage of them!!
