Learning tool for writing, reading and counting «SMART BLOCKS+WRITING TRAINER»
36 SMART BLOCKS consist of 144 planes with letters, numbers and punctuation marks. Each letter and number is repeated 2-6 times depending on their language frequency.
READING. The blocks have all the ABC and punctuation marks on their planes. The bases of the blocks are connectable in a way that allows only left-to-right direction of the words and automatically prevents the letters from reverse-reading or upside-down position.
The size of the blocks has been chosen so that it develops natural sensitivity (sensory capability) and motility of child’s fingers, prepares him for writing and contributes to correct pronunciation. Thus, in the process of reading not only speech-motor (when a child is pronouncing the letters and words) and visual images get activated, but also a motor image of word-combinations presented as a set of blocks. It allows fuller and more active synchronization and also considerably improves visual memory.
MATH. The blocks have all math symbols studied by children up to 9 years old. It forms counting skills, helps to memorize simple mathematical rules and develops ideas of length, amount, space and volume of objects.
WRITING. Writing Trainer has been designed in a form of a plate. Both sides of a plate carry letters and their elements as relief lines. On the bottom part of the lines there are tactile marks made in a form of relief ridges. Parameters of lines and ridges and their frequency make the Trainer a perfect tool for writing training as it simulates classic writing mechanism, ways of managing a pen in the hand, vectors (direction) and epure (pressure) applied to the pen by index finger, middle finger and the thumb. When a child moves his pen along the curves, the point-ball of the ball pen is sliding up the ridges and bouncing down from them. The ‘slide’ and ‘bounce’ moments are felt by fingertips as tactile messages.
When bouncing down, the ball hits the bottom of the line producing a sound signal (click). The longer is the line, the more ridges are felt and sounds produced. The effect of the Trainer is based on adding tactile (kinesthetic) and aural (sound) analyzers to the visual one. Thus, the letters are perceived as a line of tactile and sound signals read from the relief line.
