Number Sign Brick

Discover the use of Number Sign Brick.

Writing numbers in braille is easy when using LEGO Braille Bricks.

Let’s watch Carla while she plays with her French toolkit. However, the instructions we hear explain transformation of English letters into numbers.

Simply place a number sign brick in front of the relevant letter brick to transform it into a number.

When there are several numbers on a page, it is difficult to place a number brick in front of each!

We suggest using only one number sign brick to avoid lengthy equations and numerous physical manipulations.

Prior to play, there is agreement between facilitator and players for where to place the number sign brick. As long as they know the activity deals with numbers, the number sign brick can be placed in their hands, on the table or in a corner of the baseplate.
