Teaching tools

At Bridge, we’re committed to hands-on learning for every child and utilising wireless technology to deliver great results.  We support teachers, tailor lessons and leverage cutting edge innovation and technology to provide families with great schools and high-quality education.

Below are some examples we’ve developed to help us:

  • Across All Classes

    • Teacher guides

      Teacher guides

      Teacher guides don’t just display lessons, they also record attendance and assessment scores and track lesson pacing and pupil comprehension in real time thanks to our proprietary software.

    • Smartphones


      Our smartphone application allows Academy Managers to seamlessly sync their academy’s tablets, pupil admissions, fee payments, instructional monitoring, and more with Bridge headquarters.

    • Storybooks


      Storybooks are locally developed using characters and situations with which pupils can relate. We have a range of storybooks for every Bridge class from Nursery to Upper Primary.

    • Homework books

      Homework books

      Homework books provide pupils with a review of their day’s lessons, a place to do their homework, and a way to show their parents what they’ve learned and how much they’ve progressed.

    • Signals


      Acronyms, signals, and other non verbal communications for classroom routines enforce positive behavioural management.  We also use a variety of instructional songs.

  • Early Child Development

    • Slates


      We provide all early childhood development pupils with slates. These miniature chalkboards allow pupils to practice writing without the need for paper, which can be cost-prohibitive to parents.

    • Coloured counters

      Coloured counters

      Coloured counters, which are essentially bottle caps and their plastic rings, are used to teach colour recognition, fine motor skills, counting, and other basic mathematical concepts.

    • Ten frames

      Ten frames

      Repurposed egg cartons serve as ten frames, grounding pupils in early counting skills in base 10 and explaining concepts like counting, addition, subtraction, and even fractions in a natural setting.

    • Class workbooks

      Class workbooks

      Class workbooks are custom-made to match what the teacher is writing on the board so that early childhood development pupils can colour, trace, and complete patterns while they gain fine motor skills.

    • Educational toys

      Educational toys

      Additional educational toys, such as building blocks, lacing cards, puzzles, and paper dolls, are routinely used to help pupils develop fine motor skills and reinforce class content.

  • Primary Education

    • Reader sets

      Reader sets

      Two complimenting books offer fiction and non-fiction stories. Together, they teach pupils phonics in addition to reading comprehension, interpretation, analysis, and problem solving, too.

    • Geoboards


      Geoboards allow pupils to perform complex algorithms, such as multiplication, division, fractions, plane geometry, and even basic algebra, simply by shifting a rubber band on a 10×10 grid.

    • National Exam Prep

      National Exam Prep

      These classes help pupils understand the language, problem types, and test taking strategies needed to pass important national exams, such at the KCPE in Kenya.

    • Science kits

      Science kits

      Science kits, containing compasses, weather instruments, magnifying glasses, soil samples, plastic containers for experiments, and more, give pupils another opportunity to learn by doing.

    • Maps


      Maps and satellite imagery allow pupils to see firsthand how the world is laid out.  They start by studying the world as a whole, but eventually learn to map their own communities and academies, too.
