The greatest challenge for a 3-year-old, for example, is the tasks where you need to stay calm and quiet, and they can concentrate much more on activities that are intriguing and motivating. come in for a minute and listen to a story, but by doing so, they will be excited and looking for something more interesting. For them, it is more important to be actively involved in a learning process than to be silently observed.

When can your little ones focus on one thing?

About one to two years of age, a baby develops the ability to focus attention on one thing for a longer period of time, but it does not take a few minutes: in this case, it is mostly something she shows off. So the attention span of the children varies from 3 to 3 minutes up to 3 to 8 minutes, which is interesting for them, but once they are familiar with the task, they find it easy to do it quickly. By the age of 3.5, the kids are eager to do something for themselves, and spend up to 15 minutes on something if they can choose between them.

How Long Can a School Listen?
