My students are inquisitive explorers of their surroundings! They are always asking questions and conducting experiments in the world around them. They come up with the most innovative ideas and I can just see that the future is going to better because of them! Our Preschool program students can and do come from all over the city. We have a wonderfully diverse classroom with students from various backgrounds and countries such as Poland, and Albania! We are all able to learn from each other because of all the life experiences that we can share with one another.
We have lively and inspiring students so there is never a dull moment in our room!
The students love school and each other!
Puzzles are an important educational learning tool for young children as they provide many skills and mental learning benefits and opportunities. Completing a puzzle, even the most simplest of puzzles sets a single goal to achieve. Children must think and develop strategies on how to approach in achieving this goal. This process involves problem solving, reasoning skills and developing solutions which they can later be transferred into their personal/adult life. Puzzles are a fun way for children to develop and refine their fine motor skills. When engaged in playing with puzzles, children are required to pick up, pinch and grasp pieces, move them around, manipulating them into slots, sorting them and fitting them into the correct places. The accomplishment of achieving a goal brings so much satisfaction to a child. Overcoming the challenges involved in solving a puzzle really gives them a sense of achievement and pride within themselves. It provides a boost to their self-confidence and self-esteem as this prepares them for other challenges in life.
Puzzles are a great educational tool to enhance and promote cooperative play.
As kids work together to complete a puzzle, they will discuss where a piece should go and why, take turns and share and support each other when handling frustration, then sharing the joy of finishing the puzzle.
Puzzles are a fun educational toy that challenges young minds, teaching and preparing them early in life some very important life skills.
