Brick Building Activity Mats

I don’t know about your students, but my kiddos think LEGO’s make everything a hundred times more fun! If they can do math and reading with hands-on elements (such as building LEGO(TM) creations, they are so much more engaged and excited to learn.


That is the thinking behind our new Brick Building Mega Activity Pack. This is a brand new **GROWING BUNDLE** in our TPT Store! If you’re not familiar with a growing bundle, it basically means you can purchase the product at a discount while I’m still busy creating it. The price goes up with each section that I complete, until the product is finished. The sooner you purchase, the more you’ll save!

Hands-On learning key math and reading skills with LEGO™ or Strictly Briks™ Building blocks.

Hard: Students complete the reading and math activities as they build the pictures. Each picture has a different skill for students to showcase. Graphing, Tally Marks, Inequlities, Planning, Roll & Build, Spin & Read Sight Words, Addition, Subtraction, Spin & Build, Sight Word Writing.

Medium: Students follow the steps to plan then recreate the picture without a colorful template. Students must look at the smaller colored grid for reference as they recreate the build on their mat.

Easy: Students build the picture then practice finding their word in the sentences below. Encourage young students to say the word as they touch it with their finger. Older students can read the sight word sentences for reading practice, or write them on their own notebook paper.

Required Materials: Students will need bricks such as LEGO™ or Strictly Briks™ in a variety of colors. Brick sizes will be 2×2, 2×3, or 2×4. No other sizes are needed for this pack. I personally picked up this pack and this pack. Optional: It is recommended that students have a base mat 6.25 x 6.25” or larger to build their pictures. Younger students might benefit from a transparent 6.25” square base they can place exactly over the building mats to see where to place their bricks (see the medium level above).

      Hello! I purchased a set of different colored mats and transparent was one of the options. There were also some different colored transparent mats included as well. I’ve linked up all my fine motor product purchases here: I hope that helps! 🙂 Valerie
