The classroom kits have a particular significance for certain learning needs including; Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and General Working Memory Problems.
The brain haemorrhage I suffered in 2014 gave me the ultimate insight into the true nature of working memory problems.
Most classrooms have learners who could really do with some extra scaffolding. At Structural Learning, we want to help those pupils who need that support to reach their potential. Please do contact us with your specific requests.
"We used the bricks for planning a recount of the children's weekend. The pupils independently talked through their news which they usually find very difficult, even the lower level pupils were able to sequence their ideas on their own which was fantastic! I’m looking forward to continue working with the bricks next year, I am sure my new class will respond well to using them."
The bricks help learners structure their ideas in a cohesive manner acting as a visual prompt for clearer thinking.
Pupils can develop their language skills by learning how to structure words, build sentences and plan extended writing. The colourful and spatial nature of the bricks helps learners spot patterns.
Bringing the key ideas into the foreground and allowing the children to make their own conceptual connections will facilitate a deeper level of understanding.
The design of the bricks and whiteboards means that students are free to iterate in response to constructive feedback.
Structural Learning improves the intellectual engagement a student makes with the lesson content.
Structural Learning helps teachers break activities into bite-size chunks and manageable processes.
