Back to Basics: How just Six Bricks can lay a foundation for life-long learning - Feb 2018

How just Six Bricks can lay a foundation for life-long learning?

The development of perceptual skills in young children is important to lay a foundation for life-long learning. Perception refers to children's use of their senses to gather and understand information and respond to the world around them. Using their hands, children visualize and build ties to motor skills, creativity and cognitive development. 

In this webinar we explore the importance of playing with manipulatives to develop and foster perceptual, motor and physical skills.
