Dear Parents,
Most of today's schedule was unchanged for morning exercises and classes.
In the afternoon, we are fortunate to invite Mr. Yao back to give a second workshop on Chinese Classical Intelligence Toys. The students loved him!!! We spent most of the time on solving one of the most famous puzzle - "9 interlocking rings." In the end, almost all the kids solved the puzzle, which demands patience and basic logical thinking.
I learned a great deal from Mr. Yao and decided to add 4-5 sessions of his workshop to the YiB 2009 Summer Program as a significant part of the Leadership Training. There are SO many choices of toys to use for kids of all ages to help them expand their imagination and to think outside of box.
Today, as Mr. Yao was leading the class to solve the puzzle step-by-step, Andre already followed the illustration and solved a 5-interlocking rings. Lionel also followed the illustration and solved a 9 interlocking rings before Mr. Yao finished.
These toys have no motor and use no battery. :-) However, their stimulation to the students' intellectual potential is enormous. I am so pleased with this new addition to the summer program! Ask your child about it!!
Today Yanjing has hired a new counselor, Mr. Ma. So Gong Laoshi should be able to have a bit more breathing time.
The following is some information on Nine interlocking rings (from Internet) for your reference.
