LOGICO: Different and Unplugged
LOGICO may be hand-held, but it isn’t a tablet. Above all, it’s easy to hold, and the button system is perfect for solving the puzzles on the learning cards. With so much potential, how can you make the most of LOGICO in your classroom? Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Fit it in with your current topic.
LOGICO PRIMO for age 3 to 6 comes with 11 different learning card sets. Each set contains 16 different cards, giving you a wide variety with which to experiment! LOGICO PRIMO topics focus on many essential skills, taking into consideration the Early Years and Primary Curriculum. This includes counting, letter recognition, shapes and colors, and foundations of geometry. The games also work on: improving concentration, arts and crafts, learning about daily routines, matching, sorting, and sequencing. Once you have an overview of each area, select the cards which are relevant to your current classroom topic. Or you might just want to go by the illustrations and see where the activity takes you!
Combine different learning areas.
It’s a great idea to combine different learning areas to help children create links between what they already know and the new information. Furthermore, important areas such as literacy or mathematics are not ‘stand-alone’ concepts; they can be linked to give kids a well-rounded education!
For instance, children could be learning about different traditions (such as Hanukkah or Christmas) which could lead to discussions about what sort of music is played during these festivals. Then, children might solve a LOGICO PRIMO activity showing different musical instruments. After this, children could listen to some music and try picking out all the different musical instruments playing. Finally, the class could come up with a special dance routine to fit the occasion.
