Writing-reasoning "What is beauty": the basics of writing, tips and tricks
School is one of the most important stages in the development of a child. It is the school that gives a great experience not only in the knowledge of the student, but also in his social development.
Thanks to school, a child learns to write, express his thoughts correctly, and he masters many new skills. One of the main subjects during training is Russian. And this is not surprising.
In order to fully master the knowledge of the Russian language, the child is offered many tasks and exercises for the development of the necessary skills. One of them is writing essays.
Learning how to properly perform such tasks is not so easy, but let's find out together how to do this on the example of the essay “What is beauty?”.
What is required?
To make it easier for the child to deal with all the basics of writing such works, in addition to school, he also needs help at home.How to do this?
For starters, grab a pen and paper. Here you will make rough sketches of your future work. Also, if the child is still quite small, prepare some pictures and photos with something beautiful - for example, landscapes, works of art, etc.
To complicate the task a little and create a complete understanding of the beauty of a child, also take cards with different actions. For example, a boy feeds a stray cat or a girl takes her grandmother across the road. For what they are necessary, you will understand later.
Draw up a work plan
Help your child make a plan of essay-discussion on the topic "What is beauty?". To begin, we will use the basic structure:
- The introductory part is ¼ of the entire text, usually 3-4 sentences. In this part the student sets the beginning of his future reasoning.
- The main part requires more than half of the volume of the entire text, and this is not surprising - in this part the student must present all his thoughts and ideas.
- The final part, just like the introductory one, takes up ¼ of the total volume and is a kind of conclusion about the work done.
The child should immediately remember - this plan is mandatory for any essay and any written work, it is a structural basis.
But for specifically for the composition-reasoning "What is beauty?" need a plan. Here you can experiment, invent your subsections, disclose the set topic by any means. Here is one example of how a student’s plan might look like:
- The concept of beauty.
- What beauty there is.
- Examples from life.
- Conclusion on the topic.
Of course, you can expand your plan, add new sub-items there and modify it in every possible way - this will only make the child’s writing brighter and more interesting.
And now let's take a closer look at how to teach a child to write an essay “What is beauty?”.
Getting Started Together
Take the prepared cards and draft. To begin, show them to the child, ask him to describe what he sees. Ask to find common ground. When the student understands the main directions of the essay-discussion on the topic “What is beauty?”, Begin to make the first rough sketches.
Use the second set of cards with actions.Explain to the child that there is not only external beauty, but also internal, which is hidden in actions, actions and thoughts. Talk to your child and ask what beauty he thinks is more important. Let the student continue to write in the draft his thoughts, for example, on the types of beauty and the essence of beauty.
As an introduction you can use the concept of beauty. For example: “Beauty is what surrounds us. She is hiding absolutely in every subject. Beauty needs to be learned to see and appreciate. ”
But this may not be enough, because the student can add a few more sentences of general meaning, to mention the human beauty, the beauty of nature. The writing-reasoning should begin with the personal thoughts of the student, or even with the questions that he puts for himself. For example: “Is beauty always the same? Does every person have it? What beauty will save the world? ", Etc.
In order to write the main part, it is necessary to make its structure in a draft. For example, where does the child begin his reasoning? Will he tell any personal example from life or will he argue abstractly.For example: “We all understand what beauty is. We can watch it at sunrise and sunset, notice in the glare of snowflakes or admire the first spring greens. Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to appreciate beauty. Some even begin to love the world around themselves only after they have visited a close thread from death. ”
It is also here that the student can talk about inner beauty, citing as an example various real stories that happened to him personally, in his family, or simply those that he knows from the stories.
What is beauty, now we know. The writing must necessarily have a logical conclusion. The child must answer the questions posed to him, to draw conclusions about what he described. Give a personal assessment of the generally accepted concept of beauty and its value. Also in his work a child can answer the question: “Beauty will save the world”? The writing-reasoning of such a plan will certainly be appreciated with dignity and will help the student in the future to cope with the work of such a plan independently.
