Repurpose duplo blocks

Seriously love this idea! I might would color code words by parts of speech too. Then let kids build sentences based on a color pattern. Just a thought.

The idea of stacking legos or even Unifix cubes to make sentences or words for grammar/spelling practice is awesome. I wonder if they'd be more inclined to write interesting sentences in their writing products if they could do a lego activity to get ideas.

Love this idea. But instead of using blocks, use large white beans. They're cheaper and more plentiful.

Love this idea too! Simply label large legos with the parts of contractions and then label others with the actual contraction. Mix them all up and have students put them all together, matching the parts with their contraction.

Tons of Legos to use with this idea...use return address labels and HFW or spelling words.

Objective: Students will “build” original poetry using LEGO bricks. Set Up: I was lucky enough to find a big bucket of Duplo LEGO at a tag sale. I mod-podged words onto the blocks. Kids use the blocks to build poetry. We take pictures of poems they create.

great use for all those old duplos for the kids to practice their sight words and building sentences

positivelypersistentteach: Spelling with legos. I used this idea before I found it on blogs when I did literacy interventions.  It really helped some students — especially by putting blends, digraphs, and vowel pairs together.
