18 Ways to Use LEGO Bricks to Teach Literacy - This Reading Mama

Today, I’m sharing 18 creative and hands-on ways that you can use LEGO bricks to teach literacy…from fine motor activities, alphabet activities, spelling activities, and writing activities. The best part about these activities is that they can always be adapted or changed to fit the needs of children/students.
