Are you up for a challenge?

“Teacher, what can I do after I have completed the worksheet?”

I often hear students who work fast asking what else they can do, and they are always up for my challenge.

For our revision worksheet, they was a crossword puzzle – and they were game enough to create their own puzzle!

IMG-8430 IMG-8429 IMG-8428They were so excited that this habit has grown in them – to challenge their friends! Their new narrative is now – “Teacher, can I set questions for student X?” Cheers to such moments of self-directed learning
