Product Description

I have created these literacy station task cards that ask students to build or sculpt representations of common English idioms. Understanding idioms is an important part of a student's reading and aural comprehension. I believe your students will enjoy these task cards. Innovation and creativity will flourish!

Why is it as students get older we believe they no longer need to create and work with their hands? When students are allowed to think, read, and write about abstract concepts, and then represent those concepts in a creative way, their retention and understanding is enhanced. Middle and high school students need opportunities to move around, and work with their hands just as much as younger students. In addition to the intrinsic benefits of students being allowed to manipulate simple building and sculpting materials, employers in all career fields are looking for employees who can think critically and creatively.

What you get:

  • Teacher directions
  • 48 task cards--24 Build It! task cards, duplicated for the Sculpt It! task cards
  • Student instructions
  • Literacy Station sign/poster
  • Full color photos of student creations

*Note: I did not supply a rubric for this creative activity. This is in accordance with my educational philosophy as listed in my profile. Sometimes it's good to just let the students create and learn just for education's sake.

Supplies needed:

LEGOS or other building blocks

Modeling clay
