Parenting for School Success — Key Skills
Aural reasoning is the ability to comprehend auditory cues, such as direction, and apply logic or reasoning to find the solution or answer a question. If you think about mathematical word problems and how they would hurt our brain, then you can begin to understand this skill.
Here is an example:
Which picture shows Joe with his family if he has neither a brother nor an older sister?
The child must first determine what that means and then find a picture that fits their understanding, which hopefully would be a picture of a boy (Joe) and a girl that looks younger than Joe.
In everyday life children must use logic and reasoning so why not purposely create moments to enhance that skill?
Example: Put your pajamas on but if they are dirty but them in the hamper and get out a clean pair. Bringing attention to their success will generate confidence.
