Learning through the Early Years: The Benefits of Repetition and Variation The more something is repeated, the more likely children are to remember it. Repetition in a variety of forms also increases the chance of reaching children with different learning styles, and provides a more comprehensive understanding of concepts. See how PBS shows use this method and how you can use wonderful books and activities to give variety to a subject.
"Having ordinary routines and rituals, such as bedtime stories, Sunday dinners, birthday cakes, even chores, is linked to marital satisfaction, better children's health and academic achievement, and more secure adolescents, according to an examination at Syracuse University of 50 years of data on family dynamics. Researchers there found that life's little routines add up to a big security blanket, especially in times of stress. Boring is a blessing!" -Woman's Day, February 2004
