Strategy Games: In this club, students will be given the opportunity to explore a variety of games and puzzles in a safe environment. This individual exploration of materials will allow children to work on various problem solving skills such as choice and social cues. They will be given time to work in groups or by themselves. They will be offered both structured and free play throughout the weeks. Problem solving and social skills are crucial to young learners. Experience is one of the best learning tools and this club will facilitate this style of learning. Bio: Hello, My name is Soma Datta.
