LEGO® based education programmes have proven to be a very effective way of supporting children in early year’s fine and gross motor skills, pre-literacy and numeracy skills, color recognition and cognitive development. LEGO® provides a sensory experience that extends imagination and creativity.
We have many themes that coincide with what children are learning in the classroom. Some of the themes include; “Safari”, “Under the Sea”, “Whats that Sound” and “Our Community”. These themes are specifically designed to meet the Learning Aims and Goals of Aistear.
Some of the goals met are:
• Learn how to observe, collect, and make use of information.
• Become active learners by asking How, What, Why and When.
• Working in groups supports relationship building.
• Provides a range of social interactions example parallel play or cooperative play.
An example of a workshop would be the “Dinosaur” workshop. During this workshop our LEGO® Tutors discuss different types of Dinosaurs and what makes each Dinosaur unique. The children will learn the difference between “carnivores” and “herbivores” along with the history of Dinosaurs and what it means to be extinct. During the LEGO® build our trained Garda Vetted Tutors will extend the learning by asking open ended questions and the children will learn a new song all about Dinosaurs.
