Building Sight WordsFor children who are new to the alphabet, Building Sight Words is an excellent game to get them more interested in letters and sounding out words. Using large LEGO Duplo blocks and a printable sheet, kids can find letters on their own and put them in order to match words on the worksheet. Kids will love the hands-on aspect of playing with bricks while matching letters and forming words. Plus, you can easily expand the game by simply printing out more sheets!

Spelling with LEGOsThe Spelling with LEGOs game is easy to make and can last a lifetime. By writing different types of letters directly on different LEGO pieces, you can engage kids more easily and help them learn to spell by calling out words, and then having them snap together LEGOs with the correct letters to make each word. You can have them spell short words, long words, their name, or anything else, making it ideal for any child who already has an understanding of most letter sounds. You can also create a worksheet they can follow or have kids race to add an extra fun component!

Whether you have your own kids at home or kids in a classroom, we understand it can be difficult to come up with new ways of teaching and engaging kids. When working with kids who are at different spelling levels, it becomes increasingly difficult. A LEGO Spelling Test is both a fun and easy way to let kids practice their spelling and test them without them feeling too much pressure. A blank LEGO Spelling Test with sentence dictation can be used with any spelling list and any language. Children learn through play, so when it comes to educational lessons, why not make it fun as often as possible?
