Faith Builders is off to a great start at North Church! The kids are amazingly excited to learn about the Bible through fun LEGO builds. We have completed lessons 1 and 2 from Faith Builders 2.0. We learned a couple things that I want to share with others who may be following the Faith Builders 2.0 resource.
Ditch the clips!
In lesson 1, the clips could not hold the mammoth size and weight of some of the name tag creations. Instead, we used yarn secured to the back of each name tag with a huge piece of duct tape. The duct tape had the added benefit of providing extra support to the LEGO bricks.
Brick Organization and Storage
I knew storage was the key to giving the kids as much building time as possible after the Bible lesson. We decided to sort bricks based on color into plastic storage containers with lids. Not only does this make finding that perfect brick easier, but it aids in cleanup for a multi use classroom – just put the lids on and stack the containers out of the way. As we dismiss from circle time for the lesson, kids can grab a tray (a sturdy paper plate would work too) and select bricks to get started.
Keep watch for more updates from the field! Cheers. :)
