Grunnlaget / “The Foundation” is a ring binder with a complete programme for teaching basic concepts, along with a real leather attache briefcase containing the required equipment and teaching materials more than 200 pieces.
Grunnlaget gives a thorough introduction to Magne Nyborg’s model of concept teaching. The materials in the briefcase comprise everything required for work with concepts such as shape, colour, position, place, size, number (exact numbers, ones/tens, changes in and relationships between numbers). The teacher’s guide mainly focuses on number skills, though the same fundamental concepts are an excellent basis for learning to read and write.
Concept teaching according to Magne Nyborg’s model provides learners with enjoyable tasks involving concrete materials, which help them learn to verbalise similarities and differences – a skill which is crucial to successful math and language learning.
