The importance of having our toolkit ready to quickly and easily select specific braille bricks is clear.
We suggest making alphabetical towers of bricks on one baseplate and using them as a quick access to sorted bricks.
Building alphabetical base plates with children can help them to understand how bricks are arranged and then find them easily. They enjoy it as a warm up activity and appreciate finding the bricks as fast as they can.
This video shows different ways of sorting bricks on a base plate that are easy for both the practitioner and the children.
Anayes, a seven-year-old girl, uses an alphabetical baseplate for the first time. She discovers the LEGO Braille Bricks and spontaneously starts to read each letter while singing the alphabet.
Despite a few dropped bricks, she stays focused and dutifully reads each letter.
