Magna-Tiles offer students a chance to learn while they're having fun, and they can be enjoyed by all three grade levels in my class. They can recognize and name shapes, and then build three-dimensional versions. Math concepts, such as patterns, sorting, and symmetry can be explored by my kindergartners. All of my students love to build! The magnetic edges of Magna Tiles allow them to build taller more intricate structures that are not possible with standard blocks. Construction projects are lessons in persistence, concentration, problem-solving, and creativity. Hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills help my students work towards their OT goals. Magna Tiles have the versatility and universal appeal to be used within a lesson as well as during break times. My students earn breaks throughout the day. Magna Tiles will definitely be requested as a break activity! As I said, my students love to build and over the years, I have accrued a collection of Legos. They are loved by all ages, but my Kindergarteners struggle with them. This is my first year with Kindergarten students, and their motor skills are not as developed as they could be. This is where Duplo blocks save the day! They have the look and feel of the Legos the older students play with but the chunkier size my kindergarteners can manage. Everyone gets to build and have fun!
