DESCRIPTION:

The CEBM is launching another project! The LEGO RESOURCE PACKAGE can have great potential in supporting students both in the classroom and in Nurturing Support Centres (NSC)/Intervention Rooms with teachers and support staff. LEGO is often undervalued and minimally used both in working through emotions and in learning contexts.   Our students with emotional and behavioral challenges often gravitate towards building & creating, how can we increase the value of our intervention and support?

 

LEGOs can be:  

a quiet brain break activity that will help students ‘reset’ and be more available for additional learning 

a medium to go ‘hands on’ with learning - reducing felt vulnerability and defenses triggered by learning struggles/challenges 

an opportunity to ‘play out’ emotions, problem-solve situations without repercussion or fall out 

an agent of change, a problem-solving venue, inspire creativity 

This project consists of a wide array of activities, challenges and links that have been gathered for students from K4-Cycle 3. Many will also be enjoyed and found challenging with Cycle 1 High School students. 

Please come and join us in our journey to bridge challenges and help our students work through emotional hurdles.  We also look forward to hearing of your initiatives using LEGO as an intervention medium and other building & creating materials!
