Each of these pix is from this last week — though they could have been any week.
Theo spends most of his waking hours building with legos. We’ve had various sized legos around since Nic was 2, but they were never much more than a momentary distraction for him. For Theo, they are an abiding passion.
Although these pix might not really show it, there is an amazing level of detail, sophistication and symmetry to all of Theo’s creations. He names each one and can tell you what function every detail serves. Nothing is there merely for asethetics.
He amazes me.
So everyday he is using his creativity and his imagination. And he is learning math, geometry and physics…as well as increasing his vocabulary.
So, lego building as a curriculum? it works for me 😉
blessings,
Mary
