Grade 1 learners relished every moment of the LEAP session

Grade 1 learners relished every moment of the LEAP session

Learners played “Picture Sudoku Puzzle ” in pairs. In “Picture Sudoku Puzzle ” the partners were provided with the picture tokens of snake, mouse,  turtle, cactus, lizard  and tree along with  6 by 6 sudoku puzzle sheets.

As you can see in the pictures, the learners are playing with a 6 by 6 grid puzzle that was given to them. An important condition was laid, that the picture had to appear only once in each row and column.

Brain teasers (Logic puzzles) demands mental effort for it’s solution. The end product may be fascinating, but it requires a lot of skill and concentration.

If children are exposed to logical thinking from a very young age, they learn to think critically and gain confidence as well.

Important Note:

I am attaching the Images of Answer key for the last cycle’s homework worksheets. It is to tally the answers. Do correct the worksheets and send them back with learners as we maintain a LEAP file in the class.
