Developing Skills

All the children that are attending Nceduluntu’s Grade R are over five years old and they are all preparing for school, something they have been waiting for, for a long time. When we take a few of the students out from their normal class to give them some special attention, we focus on three things: Math’s, English and creative/fine motor skills.

One of our excellent long term interns is focusing on puzzles during the motor skills sessions. Through puzzles, something they love, the children develop, concentrate and laugh during their lesson, a true dream for a teacher. Something that makes this activity even better is the ability to see the progress that the children make. You can see how they are struggling with getting their pieces together in the beginning of the class and are all confused by the different pattern that appears on the picture. Then, half hour later their fingers are starting to dance over the tables and I am sure that within a few weeks their fingers will be able to dance in the right direction all by themselves.
