A morning of reading and playing

We learned about the early Sumerians today (circa 2300 B.C.)  As the kids listened, they built Lego ziggurats. The oldest eagerly searched for images of ziggurats so the kids had an idea of what to build.

... And I just sat and read for 1.5 hours this morning.  Hey, all I need is bon-bons and I'm a stereotypical stay-at-home mom.  ;-)


  1. Sounds like fun. I love how legos can be used for so many things in school. My boys have just had legos for about a year now so I'm still learning all we can do with them. My 11-year-old made an awesome Viking ship and village last week.

    1. We're doing cells in science... I think I may have them do a cross-section of a cell with Legos. The possibilities are endless!

  2. Like Jennifer, I am amazed with the flexibility of legos! Great job kids!
