Musical Letters

20 min1 participant

Recognize letter bricks and make their sounds. Track a row and sing a rhythm to match the pattern that is found.

Let's play!

  1. Track the line of bricks with your index fingers.

  2. Pronounce each letter as you touch it.

  3. Make a beat box sound (e.g. “bing” or “bang” ...) for each brick that is not a letter.

How to prepare

  • 1 base plate

  • 10 letter bricks, from “A” to “J”

  • 10 Classic LEGO bricks (4x2)

  • 1 bowl

Align 11 bricks across the top of the base plate, alternating Classic and braille bricks and leaving a space between each of them.

Place the other bricks in the bowl.

Facilitation tips

  • Ask “How can you tell the difference between letters and the other bricks?”.

  • Suggest “Imagine and sing a song or a rhythm”.

  • Suggest “Tell a story in relation to your song”.

Possible variations

  • Change the number of letters/rows/spaces/columns.

  • Change the pattern /rhythms.

  • Encourage personal creation of musical composition.
