Lego learning

Honestly, I can't take credit for this idea.  My creative husband came up with it.  May be a guy thing? 
A way to learn reading using Mega Bloks (or big legos as I call them).  You may have seen the thing using legos to teach fractions in math.  A great idea, I had just never thought of using them for reading. 


The individual blocks are the letters. 



The doubles are blends.  (sorry it's blurry; it's qu)



Use triples and quads to put the letter on to make up words. 




You would have to combine some to make words of five or more letters. 

Until next time...

My kids love Legos! We have used them for lots of things but not for reading. My son is reading over my shoulder and is seriously impressed with his cleverness. I think we will be heading to goodwill for some mega blocks! Thanks, Jen!
