Why riddles are important to brain ?

The most important thing is to choose the right riddles. If you overestimate the child’s knowledge and choose too complex, then guessing will quickly turn from an interesting leisure time into a boring, uninteresting activity. As, however, are too simple riddles that quickly deprive children of enthusiasm.

Do not rush to give your child the only correct answer to the riddle. It happens that riddles imply many options for correct answers.

Here is several types of riddles:

comparison riddles – where the enigmatic object is compared with another object or phenomenon, to which it is similar or somewhat different; riddles-descriptions where an object or phenomenon is described;
combined riddles are a combination of riddles-descriptions with riddles-comparisons.

When working with riddles-comparisons, it is necessary to teach the child to consciously highlight and memorize the various signs of the conceived. To achieve this goal, children in their environment find similar objects according to one common feature, and then compare and generalize them.

The topics of riddles are diverse: about domestic and wild animals, about clothes, about products, about natural phenomena, about transport. These kinds of riddles are offered to children of younger and middle preschool age.

In working with children of older preschool age, more complex types of riddles are offered, in guessing which the child uses comparison, exclusion, comparison.

You can make riddles anywhere (at home, in nature, on the road, at a party, at a holiday) and at any time. They are always appropriate, especially if they are selected according to the chosen location and occupation.

Of course, the child should be interested in the process of proof, in reasoning, in the selection of facts and arguments. Because when guessing a riddle, the children have a specific goal: not just to guess the riddle, but also to prove that the guess is correct. If he was wrong, the child continues to search for the correct answer.

The children are already on their own!
Emotional perception is characteristic of young children. Ask riddles that use strong outward signs. These are riddles about toys, pets, some household items, and food.
