Logical thinking is the ability to integrate information. Thanks to the ability to think logically, we are able to understand the meaning of the statement, read text, we are able to perform mathematical operations. Logical thinking is simply reasoning that allows us to infer, relate the present situation to past events, or think cause-effect.
The left hemisphere of the brain is responsible for logical thinking, where all information is collected and organized. We have already mentioned many times that playing with KORBO blocks exercise the left hemisphere and support the synchronization of the cerebral hemispheres.
How can we use KORBO blocks to support children's development of logical thinking?
Thinking is a complex skill with many processes – it requires efficient attention, memory, and is based on the intelligence and knowledge of the individual. Logical thinking is a type of thinking used in the course of various puzzles, games and puzzles.
KORBO blocks can be used to create new versions of games that we all know very well: ships, tic-tac-toe, checkers, Chinese. Instead of pawns, cards and pens, we will use platforms and gears. It's just fun! These well-known and widely used games have this characteristic that children get bored after a while. Then the KORBO blocks come to the rescue!
In addition, we will practice logical thinking by playing with blocks in the simplest games – even with the youngest: counting blocks, assembling and disassembling buildings, throwing blocks into a box and taking them out, determining where there are many blocks, and where little, where more, and where less. You can have fun hiding a block under one of three identical boxes and mixing boxes and finding lost items. It's great fun to sort the blocks by colors (for boxes of different colors) or shapes (matching a picture with a specific shape). We can practice the understanding of the concepts as much as possible: on, in, under, during play, e.g. placing blocks on the table, under the table, hiding the blocks in a bag. We hide the block, ask: "Where is the block?", The child looks for it, we suggest: "The block is under the table".
There are plenty of logical games for children – it all depends on what we come up with or what our children come up with!
