Grade 3 Student Learns to Learn
Learning To Learn with Inkscape
Kate Jepchirchir is a third grader in Zawadi Yetu Academy. Today, being their second week using Inkscape, we decided that we are not going to draw shapes, since they're already used to drawing shapes.
Kate said today that she wanted to make something different with her name and the name of her school. She drew boxes coloured with different colours, and made a star in the middle.
Pride and Ownership
When writing her name and the name of her school, she didn't know how to type capital letters. When she explained to me that she wanted capital letters, I showed her how it is done, and she re-did it quickly. She was very happy with her own work and the beautiful colors.
