Origami is the first game for the child. The purpose of a useful game is to educate beside your fun. Origami is an essential educational tool for the child as it is perceived as a game rather than a compulsory dersten. Origami is an example of learning schematics with repetitive actions. In addition, the aesthetic aspect of your work becomes important to the child. The child will intensify his attention to making the pre-recorded video object, watch the model, and listen and perform the instructions.

Step by step description, including actions to be developed for preparation and implementation:
This application deals with the child's social skills, communication skills, creativity and aesthetics. Origami is an effective educational tool because it is primarily a game and perceived as a game. Origami is an example of learning schematics with repetitive actions. In addition, the aesthetic aspect of your work becomes important for the child. A video about the selected object is displayed before starting with the child. The video is said to be the resulting objen itself. 1.Application is performed in the six behavioral chains. The selected object is determined as a simple bag (wallet) construction. A paper is given to both the educator and the child to do it together. The first application is also used as if it were A4 paper. It is emphasized that this paper is a rectangle. It is reinforced by showing other objects in the shape of a rectangle and by asking the child to show it. Then we show how to find the middle of the paper. The paper is folded with a child first, then the other end together with the child. The resulting shape is again reinforced. It is now shown by saying that we are reversing the paper and the child is made to do so. The center of the paper is determined again. Folding of the two ends of the paper is provided. Finally, the obliterated by folding the paper from the place shown is known and examined by the child. 2.Our application is also a simple glass construction and it is done in six behavioral chains. It is said that the paper should be square for the second object. This is repeated a few times with the child. Then the square paper shows how to obtain it without using scissors. Together with the child, the paper is folded first and then the remaining excess is torn off by hand. These operations can also be viewed step by step. After the paper has been reinforced by repeating that it is square, it is shown how to combine the corners and make a triangle. The resulting triangle is repeated to reinforce. The triangular nose is said to be taken to the nose, the triangular eye is said to be put on the eyes of two triangles, the mouth of the triangle is made to say that I made a mouth, etc. the triangle is reinforced. Then another folding process is taught by saying that we should make small triangles. He makes a trainer first. Then, if necessary, your child will fold together. It is folded from the place shown by saying that we will hide the last triangles respectively. The resulting glass object is given to the child for examination. Origami also allows the child to become aware of the need to be patient to arrive at a conclusion. They also develop communication, observation, cooperation and empathy when making origami. Origima is not cut and glued except some figures. This is likely to make you happy because it makes the job easier for the child. In this practice, children will meet the need to be emotionally satisfied and accepted around when they produce a product with their own work. While children do not have the chance to choose a model in the first figures when making origami, the size of the paper can be determined by itself. Presenting artistic products will contribute to the development of children's sense of self-confidence. If the origin is a two-handed study, the hand and arm physiotherapist will also benefit the child. In addition, the need for language use will also support children's language development. When children are making origami, they will be asked to repeat their form often, be asked to make an estimate, and contribute to language development that will allow them to express their emotions and thoughts. Origami is the art that uses geometry the most.
Resources to be used, including human resources, materials and spaces:
teacher, desk, colored paper
Difficulties found while implementing it:
The paper can be torn down, and the replacement paper can be restarted with new paper. Apart from that, it is not thought that a big problem can be encountered.
