A personal story of how children develop the acquired skills to ride a bike, in relation to learning theories.
Learning to ride a Bike
As I woke up to the land of the living, I began to find my slippers and place them onto my cold feet. I then proceeded to walk down the hallway, as I entered the lounge room I looked around and felt surprised that my children weren't sitting in their usual choice on the lounge. I could hear them but I couldn't see them. I really was unsure wether it was a good thing or a bad thing........
Saturday morning once again, the morning started out just as usual as any other Saturday morning. The children were up at the crack of dawn with the sun, lots of noise and the constant sound of the spoon tapping the porcelain bowl as the children ate their cereal. Defiantly no sleep in for their tired mothers who was feel absolutely drained from the the week in which she had endured.
"Just hold on and push your feet down"
" I can't do it, I don't know how to"
As I gazed out the window I could see my eldest son explaining to his younger brother the process of ridding a bike. I could hear him saying " Just hold on and push your feet down". As the younger child attempted to master this desired skill he became frustrated and he got off the bike and proceeded to throw the bike onto the concert saying "I can't do it, I don't know how to".
As I proceeded to go out side, Johnny came over to me and said " I just want to ride my bike but I can't do it". I explained that that it take time to learn the skill to ride a bike but if you would like to go to the bike track we could continue to practice. They both agreed with smilies on their face.
"Thank-you for your help"
Johnny, sit on the seat, I will hold onto the bike and assist you until you feel comfortable"
Congratulations, Johnny mastered the skills of ridding unassisted on 15/1/15.
