Children are born with natural curiosity and creativity, and are eager to learn.The modules we offer for early education help children understand the world around them by exploringtopics like language and literacy, early math and science, physical coding, and social and emotionaldevelopment.
We use various games and lessons developed using guidelines from national standards to help students ignite a passion for lifelong learning. The solutions we use target 4 categories of early learning: 1)Early Math and Science; 2) Social and Emotional Development: 3) Early Language and Literacy, and 4) Creative Exploration.
The preschool years are an exciting and irreplaceable time in students education because they lay the foundation for their future character. At this age, children learn primarily through play so it’s up top reschool educators to make sure that play is infused with effective learning experiences that help children build essential life skills while having fun in the process.
Lego Education solutions are built for this. Using Lego and LEGO Duplo bricks and rich teaching resources, we help preschool educators develop strong foundations in four key categories: Early Math and Science, Social & Emotional Development, Early Language and Literacy, and Creative Exploration. For Special Education Educators.
The Early learning portfolio offers unique ways to meet the needs of special education students. Lego Education solutions leverage hands=on education in a way that helps students of all levels learn and smile.
NiNI’s Education works with the following LEGO Education solutions:
1) Coding Express
2) STEAM Park + Experiment Tubes Set
3) Build Me Emotions + Community People Set
4) Story Tales
Early math and science
This intuitive solution brings students all aboard to learn the basic language of the digital age in a creative way. Coding Express combines digital and physical elements like action bricks and switches to introduce early learning students to coding concepts like sequencing, looping, and conditional coding. Students will learn collaboration, language, critical thinking skills, and more, as they explore and create play scenarios using a classic train set.
Then five colored action bricks will make the train come to life as students place them around the tracks to sound the horn, turn the lights on and off, pause and refuel, change directions, and stop the train wherever they like.
The optional app combines physical play with digital intervention and is designed to enhance the learning experience. When you introduce the app the four different themed activities change the way the action bricks behave, altering their effect on the train.
Explore destinations and traffic signs. Learn about the sequencing of events, making predictions, planningand problem solving.
Support children’s social and emotional development. Children identify and examine the feelings of characters, considering the consequences for others.
Explore and understand how to measure, estimate distance and identify numbers.
Learn about sequencing and looping. Compose simple melodies, and explore different animal and instrument sounds.
This module comes with 8 units, so it runs over two months and one group can have 10 – 20 children.
STEAM Park builds on children’s natural curiosity and desire to create, explore, and investigate the world of early science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) through creative play. The possibilities are endless as they construct a park full of dynamic rides, Fun games and scenes using a special selection of LEGO DUPLO Bricks. With every trip to STEAM Park students expand their understanding of gears, motion, measurements, and problem solving in a fun and engaging way.
This module contains a total of 17 units, of which 12 are basic. Consequently, the module lasts at least 12 weeks or about 3 months and one group can have 10 – 20 children.
This solution sets out to help answer a question kids ask all the time: “How does that work?” The Tubes Experiment Set helps children develop their fine motor skills while discovering creative ways of constructing the tubes. The set also ignites their inner scientists as they investigate, construct, and test important concepts like cause and effect.
Social and emotional development – A sense of self and community
Building social skills is one of the most critical factors in children’s development and it will influence the
rest of their lives. LEGO Education uses bricks fun faces, stories and more to help students develop a sense
of self as they collaborate to understand similarities and differences around them.
An important part of growing up is recognizing and understanding the emotions of ourselves and others,
and learning that our emotions have nuances beyond good vs. bad. This solutions invites students to
explore emotions and physical characteristics in a fund and engaging way. Using face bricks, students can
recognize feelings and identify similarities and differences, all while learning collaboration skills. Building
cards and comprehensive lesson plans help kick start lessons that build new vocabulary and expand
The module has 12 teaching lessons, so it runs over a 3 month, and the maximum number of children in a group with two sets and two instructors is 16.
COMMUNITY PEOPLE SET
Like the Tubes Experiment Set, this set complements and enriches the work with any of the preschool modules. It allows students to role play with 20 different characters and learn lessons about age, relationships, gender and the unique roles people have in their communities.
Early Language and literacy
A creative start to storytelling
Children learn about communication as they begin to express their thoughts and ideas. Asking children to construct fairy tales, imaginative short stories, and more helps encourage the development and introduces them to the skills of storytelling. These solutions let students stand in the spotlight and share their creations and stories with each other.
With this engaging set, students never have to say “the end” to learning and literacy. Story Tales promotes creativity, imaginative storytelling, and language development in a hands-on way. With Story Tales, students can flex their listening, presenting, and collaboration skills.
This module comes with 6 teaching lessons, and lasts 6 weeks. The number of children in a group is 10.
Lessons for primary school students
Learning through the various tools at this stage of development awakens creativity and fosters their engagement with STEAM. The primary modules we work with are designed to introduce children to STEAM concepts by improving collaboration, communication and solution skills problems. Our lesson plans provide learning opportunities in the STEAM field at various levels.
At its core, science isn’t about lab coats and research papers. It’s about asking questions and investigating the answers. It’s about wonder.
WeDo 2.0 encourages students to put those aspects of scientific discovery to work by solving real STEAM problems. Using LEGO Bricks, sensors, and motors, students can use this solution to ignite their creativity, develop critical-thinking skills, explore career possibilities, and simply get hands-on STEAM experience.
This set helps make abstract engineering and concepts concrete, and improves studetn’s collaboration, problem solving, and computational thinking skills.
