During the Shadow Matching activity, teacher placed a matching card in front of him and said, “Jia Le, can you help me match the shadows to the real object?”
His eyes immediately lit up, and excitedly pointed, “There is soccer ball, rocking horse and music!”
“Well done! But Jia Le, that is not music. It is called xylophone and it makes music! Now, can you find the real ones and put on top of their shadows?”
Even before he finished hearing all the instructions, Jia Le was already grabbing each puzzle and matching them. Within minutes, Jia Le was done. All without his teacher’s help!
That sense of pride that exuded through his every action can only be summarised in two words: pure joy.
