Something I noticed when I just started my nursery school on the farm was that the children, even the older ones, really struggled with jigsaw puzzles. They had clearly never had their hands on any. It took a lot of practice, with very basic jigsaws, for them to understand the whole purpose of putting together pieces that make up a picture. It’s been a treat to see each child’s progress as they have slowly come to learn how to put it together. Amazingly even the wildest boys can sit and concentrate on a jigsaw puzzle. I think it helps them to learn to see patterns and to focus their mind. Jigsaws are taken out almost daily in the school, it’s something the children have learnt to love.
