Pedagogical purpose The post festival contributes to several pedagogical objectives, including: the development of motor skills, writing skills, imagination and structuring ideas.
Pedagogical method The second stage of the festival is letter writing and signing the cards. This may not be the most interesting aspect of the holiday, but it is the most fundamental from a pedagogical perspective. Some sign postcards by themselves, some dictate letters to volunteers, while others (mostly the youngest of the group) trace out letters written for them for volunteers. In the first two cases, the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brain activity is focused on the structuring thoughts and finding the correct ways to express them. Tracing helps the children memorize the alphabet, which further helps the children in acquiring writing skills.
â&#x20AC;&#x153;Simple pleasuresâ&#x20AC;Ś" When we announced to the children that Post Day was coming, they were very happy. And it is justified! From year to year, camp to camp, we have a good tradition of exchanging letters between children and volunteers. The children just love receiving letters from the volunteers, and this is where the idea of the first Post Day holiday came from!
