Kate Pepper, former WCS pre-school teacher and art educator at Monart School of Art, designed the curriculum used in the Learning With Legos classes. In this language-arts based class children will build the scenes from classical literature, build Lego food and plan menus, practice using play money, design construction vehicles and use tools, build through the alphabet and practice forming words with the Lego letters. Each lesson is carefully planned to encourage creativity and ingenuity in a playful, exciting environment. These classes are enjoyable for both boys and girls that have an interest in literature, science, math, building, invention, machines, or who enjoy working with their hands. Legos are the perfect medium to build with to improve fine motor skills, task completion, team-work cooperation and enhance visual perception skills and spatial awareness. Learning is more enjoyable and creative when it is sufficiently challenging; lessons gradually become more challenging throughout each semester. This is the perfect class for any child who is creative and likes to build with their hands!
