Sharing Ideas With LEGO Learning


In case you hadn't noticed, we love learning with LEGOS! 

They encourage creativity, concentration, discipline, and just plain FUN!  

These little bricks enter into so many areas of our homeschool.


History = LEGO Landmarks

Math = LEGO Candy Math

Science = Interlocking Brick Technique/How to Stand On Your LEGO Creation

Reading = LEGO reader books

Writing = stories with LEGO minifigure character printables


I want to detail the ways we can connect and share LEGO ideas.

The beauty of this homeschooling life is that we can learn from each other, share ideas, and have so much fun.
