SPICA + LaQ

LEARNING THE BASICS OF MATHEMATICAL THINKING THROUGH PLAY

 

The most important thing in how a child learns through play, is that the child is able to use their hand skills during daily playtime as part of their learning experiences. Children’s Math consists of 'numbers', 'shape' and 'reasoning', and LaQ is a toy that allows a child to experience all three of these. In our classes, the children first learn how to build concentration by simply connecting the parts with the fun snap and click sounds. Next, the children build their concept of numbers and quantity, leading to discoveries of regularities and patterns in how to connect the parts. During that process, they develop logical thinking while learning to build based on this pattern, as well as develop spatial perception when learning how to build from 2D to 3D shapes. After numerous trials, and lots of thinking, the children exercise their creativity and imagination by actually building the image that is in their minds. The children do not realize that they are learning the basic skills of mathematics through play, but they tell me how much fun it is to play with LaQ, and that they want to build some more!
