I just came across a book that I think is a brilliant idea – Kindergarten Sudoku by Peter Kattan. I’ve been studying the way children learn for many years, so I appreciate the educational value of this type of book. If children are exposed to logical puzzles and sequencing at an early age, the brain forms important synapses and links which stimulates higher level thinking skills. A child’s ability to memorize and retain information is greatly increased.
In other words, give your kids lots of opportunities to think logically. Make sure they are ready for school and life. This book has not only number Sudoku puzzles but letter & shape puzzles. But also give them opportunities to use the right brain in creative ways. Balance your students’ brain development. (Watch for my next post on how art stimulates learning.)
