Not all parents may agree to this, but woodworking in the classroom is advised by experts in the fields of arts and child psychology. This is because of the many invaluable benefits that comes with it. Most students are unable to get a chance of enjoying woodworking as a subject because computer subjects are preferred to be a part of the curriculum instead of it.
I always tell my children that woodworking is a practical skill. Carpentry is very much needed in our daily lives. If something gets broken inside the house, your knowledge in carpentry is crucial in fixing it. Exemplifying in carpentry can provide for them a great job or business if ever they struggle with their academic performances and securing a position in a company becomes difficult for them in the future.
In carpentry or woodwork, children are trained to do measurements and mathematical equations in order to arrive at the right design. These will help improve children’s or students’ skills in abstract math. Apart from improved math skills, children also get improved attention span or concentration. This happens as they are required to pay attention to details especially when they are carving out the design. Doing so requires patience too.
