While teaching/volunteering in Nepal, I found out it was easiest for the children, who just started school, to learn words by visualising them. For example, when learning colours, they remembered al the colours with much more ease when they had to use a coloured pencil to show the actual colour. The same goes for the months and days of the year, the teacher made her own calendar with nice colours and flowers and cards to indicate all the days, which created a fun learning environment for the kids. The alphabet seemed the most boring to learn for the kids, however, it was easier for them to learn the alphabet when it was shown on the board.
