Lego Poetry Center

Posted on

Remember this post?  I finally got around to putting words on the Duplos!  Well, some of them.  I probably have enough to do two sets if this center works as well as I hope.  I think it will be especially fun in April for Poetry Month. 

 I used a lot of K-2 sight words to make it appropriate for a range of grades and abilities. I also threw in some library words and some fun words.  I can’t find the file with my list of words anywhere or else I would share with you!  If I make a new copy, I will update with the GoogleDoc link.

To make the lego poetry, I used a table in Word with cells that would fit on the Duplos.  I laminated them but I bet you wouldn’t need to depending how you attach them.  I tried attaching some words with tape like I did for my Library Jenga Trivia but the tape was a smidge too big and hung over the edges, which bugged me.  Then I tried Mod Podging them on and that worked really well.  

Once this center is in action, I’ll let you know how the kids like it and how the Mod Podge is holding up!

    Do you have the words in a file by chance?

      I don’t, so sorry! I may make ABC legos when I have time and will make sure I save that doc in a safe place so I’ll have it to share.

    Do you have more student samples you could post to share with students as an introduction to the lesson?

    How do you pick your words?

      I started with a lot of sight words, just so they would be recognizable to younger students. Then I added in “fun” words like colors, interesting verbs, random animals, anything I thought the kids would like :)

    I love your ideas! what size are your legos and how make set did you use to begin with?

      I used Duplo LEGOs because they can fit text that’s large enough for little kids to read. I bought a giant bucket of them used at a tag sale. I’m not sure how many I have but I can check and get back to you!
