Ron Shuster, a retired teacher from the US, brought the KKIS Project several bags of school supplies last month. Among the treasures was a puzzle of Body Parts, just two pieces for each part – one with a picture and the other with the word – that fit together. The students have been studying facial features on the computer program donated by Brillkids called Little Reader, so I decided to give this a try yesterday.
The photos show that it was very well received. We let each group of four kids work on it for a few minutes and then passed it on to the next group. These hands on learning techniques are working great.
The director of the DIF school has requested larger piece puzzles for the kids. Anybody have some that their kids have outgrown they would like to donate? There are some available at Tony’s Papeleria on Ave. 30 and Calle 12 if you would like to purchase and donate.
