Toy review#1 Kaleidoscope

I plan to post the review of the toys and games I play with my daughters. Being in the teaching profession opens me to many more such educational toys. Thus, thought to spread the word about it to other parents. I will be more than happy to hear from you, your critical inputs in those games.( or others that you played or came across)

This game engaged my daughter no bound. She was able to follow the simple instructions independently after following the manual. The manual was self-explanatory as it depicted the instruments pictorially as well. Each item was packed very well and could easily be dismantled. The joy of being able to place the mirrors triangularly (to get that impact) was eureka for her!

In the teaching field from past 12 years, with each year adding to my learning curve. The love for the kids and aim to scaffold them to reach their zone of proximal development keeps me hooked to my profession. Each year, I have been involved in training my staff members and parents in areas like special education, response to intervention model and precision teaching; classroom management and devising an individualised plan for the child as per his/her needs. The success attained by the students gives me immense peace! I aim to have happy, chirpy kids around!
