My students need Lego's to help with their concrete learning. Lego's will help students with achieving the math standards, as well as, their motor, spatial and processing speeds.
We are a self-contained team, which consist of 30 students with various disabilities. Working with two other special education teachers, we deliver all four core content classes to the students at their ability levels. Individual abilities of our student's range from Pre-K to Grade 8.
The majority of our students learn kinesthetically and need objects, to manipulate the task, in order to process the content.
I would love to use Lego's, in math, to reach the many standards taught.
As teachers, we constantly strive to think "outside the box" when delivering instruction to our students. Using Lego math would be another way we would be able to accomplish this goal.
Using manipulatives is a great way to engage the students in their learning and get them to delve into their work. I chose the classic lego sets to help students with math concepts such as fractions, and equivalent fractions, multiplication, and division, addition, and subtraction, mean median, mode, and range, and arrays.
In addition to achieving the math standards, students can also work on real-world applications, spatial awareness, problem-solving, motor dexterity, and problem-solving skills.
Using Lego's in the classroom is a great way to expand abstract thinking and reach all learners to decrease the gap in their overall learning deficits.
