Just do what every concrete job normally does and set screed guides (usually the tops of the forms - takes a fairly huge job to required intermediate ones, which are fussy and annoying because you have to screed the concrete and then pull them at the right point that the hole they leave can be filled, but the surface around them does not slump when they are pulled. Easy enough for pros, difficult to judge right for amateurs.)
If your slab is huge, pour it in sections so you can screed with the top of the forms. Bricks will at minimum be a weak spot in a concrete slab, and don't really make a good screed guide.
You have edited to update that you are pouring against a wall on two sides. Do your walls and your slab a favor and use expansion joint material between the two, and set the top of the expansion joint material at the correct level/slope to guide your screeding.
