BUILDING AND CREATING AREA

Building and Creating is a rich venue for intervention. We highly recommended dedicating an area within your intervention room to welcome a range of building and creating materials. Although a very wide range of materials are suggested within our resources, we fully understand that it may not be possible to have them all. We encourage you to have a range of materials as these will provide different possibilities for your students to experience their creativity and attempt to work through different emotional experiences. Building and creating offers a wonderful terrain for trial & error, readjusting, and making new and different attempts to solve challenges. Being ‘one step removed’ these interventions are then less vulnerable for students.

THE LEGO RESOURCE PACKAGE

The CEBM is launching another project! The LEGO RESOURCE PACKAGE can have great potential in supporting students both in the classroom and in Nurturing Support Centres (NSC)/Intervention Rooms with teachers and support staff. LEGO is often undervalued and minimally used both in working through emotions and in learning contexts.   Our students with emotional and behavioral challenges often gravitate towards building & creating, how can we increase the value of our intervention and support?

LEGOs can be:  

  • a quiet brain break activity that will help students ‘reset’ and be more available for additional learning 

  • a medium to go ‘hands on’ with learning - reducing felt vulnerability and defenses triggered by learning struggles/challenges 

  • an opportunity to ‘play out’ emotions, problem-solve situations without repercussion or fall out 

  • an agent of change, a problem-solving venue, inspire creativity
