Fall Workshops Begin for Early Childhood Centers of Development - Numbers, Shapes, Puzzles

Six ECCD teachers, walking between 1-3 hours, came to this workshop. They made manipulatives to guide children from concrete through semi concrete to abstract early numeracy. To build spatial skills and fundamental 'part to whole' relationship understanding, they made puzzles from magazine pictures and cardboard.

Thanks to Lesotho Young Authors Program, who donated blank books, colored pencils, and pencil sharpeners, these teachers made books and pattern blocks to teach their children about shapes and pattern.

Our group decided that April 14 will be our next workshop together. See you there!
