675- Using Mech-a-Blocks to Explore Shapes, Patterns, and Transformations

Saturday, April 18, 2015: 9:45 AM-11:00 AM

Lead Speaker:
Cherubim Cannon
Travis Sloane and Lesia Wilder


How can emergent readers learn to identify and manipulate shapes, patterns, and transformations? Learn to use large-scale pattern blocks that include holes and fasteners for connecting them to make structures and mechanisms. You’ll explore Mech-a-Blocks for yourself, develop strategies for using them, and discuss examples of children’s work.
