LEGO┬« Bible Verse Copywork: FREE Download


 We're a little crazy for LEGO here in our home! 

In addition to the LEGO ideas and printables here on the blog, I've also authored a chapter in the Big Big of Homeschool Ideas - all about teaching with LEGO bricks! That chapter includes our favorite brick sets, easy ways to incorporate LEGOS into learning, and lesson ideas. 

Recently, my son has been recreating stories from the Bible with his LEGOs. It's been such fun!

I read a Bible story to him, and then he builds that story. Then, I give him a verse from that story as copywork. In this simple lesson we are learning SO much.

LEGO Minifig Summer Fun Writing Prompts - Free Download

 

Free LEGO Minifig Writing Prompt Download - Summer Fun

It's been too long since I've offered a free LEGO Minifig writing prompt download!

As my son has been happily absorbed in his LEGO bricks again this week, I was motivated to give him some writing prompts for summer. 

Because let's face it: Sometimes our children need motivation to write, and anything LEGO seems to motivate a lot of kids I know! 

This download contains 10 summer writing prompts and also a grammar rule (a learning "take away" if you will) that is impotant for children to master. Each prompt is followed by lined paper, and the end of the download includes a page of minifigs to cut and clor.
