Date posted: September 4, 2019
We’re playing Literacy Month Bingo at Decoda!
How are jigsaw puzzles a literacy activity? Working on jigsaw puzzles develops cognitive skills, such as:
- Shape recognition
- Colour recognition
- Working memory
- Goal setting
- Problem solving
For young children, it enhances hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills in addition to spatial skills. If done in a group, a jigsaw puzzle promotes cooperation and collaboration. These are all skills that support school readiness.
If you find working on a jigsaw puzzle enjoyable and relaxing, you’re not alone. Read about another enthusiast in The 1 Item Bill Gates Almost Always Brings Along When Going On Vacation.
