Title: Back to Basics with 6 Bricks
The lack of stimulation, use of size appropriate, concrete manipulatives and play during the perceptual, pre-numeracy and pre-literacy development of children inspired me to find an easy and cost effective solution for schools and pre-schools, To achieve this I use open-ended, daily activities that are easy for teachers to understand and as easy to implement.

Challenge Entries

Learning should take place through construction rather than instruction.

Hands on activities to develop working memory, perceptual, speaking and listening skills.
