QIn the past, literacy cards that looked at pictures were matched with pictures, but now there are many literacy cards in the bookstore that have only characters but no pictures. Is it better to buy some cards for babies?
A thing worth reminding is that for young children, “both pictures and text” may not be a good thing.
It seems that text matching is good for adults or older children, but for younger children, because their working memory capacity is small, their ability to process different information at the same time is relatively limited.
According to the psychology profession, the “psychological load” is relatively limited. Therefore, when the children are shown pictures and text at the same time, the painted colors are more vivid, which is more likely to attract children’s attention.
Due to the limited psychological load, it is easy to ignore the accompanying text when paying attention to the brightly colored presentation.
As a result, the child may only remember the drawing but not the text, or recognize the text and the picture as a whole, instead of giving the picture meaning to the text.
As a result, when the text is separated from the painting, the text is not recognized.
In addition, for older babies, we generally do not encourage babies to recognize characters prematurely.
However, for children who are slightly older and have preliminary reading skills, books with pictures and texts are good for them to read.
