An Exclusive Homeschool Buyer’s Co-op Offer! The Co-op is pleased to welcome member favorite, LEGO® Education in time for spring savings for your homeschool classroom! Co-op members enjoy EXCLUSIVE SAVINGS of Up to $24 OFF on two new Lego Education homeschool packs: StoryStarter Homeschool Pack and the BuildToExpress Homeschool Pack!
We currently own both of these sets and have used them frequently in our homeschool. BuildToExpress is more than a new LEGO product, it is a teaching process that can be built on over and over again. Hence the name build to express. The core set contains a variety of LEGO pieces, 200 in all, that range from minifigures to tools to bricks to wheels. Everything a kid would need to really spark his imagination. Each piece can easily be turned into something else with a little creativity. That is what this set is designed to do. Read my complete review and see more photos and examples, like this one: What I Want to Tell the President.
StoryStarter is a hands-on solution for introducing your children to key Language Arts concepts while building communication skills. StoryStarter teaches learners the basic structures of a well-composed story, making it a great tool for analyzing existing stories or discussing specific, current topics. What’s more, the included StoryVisualizer software links the physical world with the digital, enabling children to record the stories they have crafted in a visual and creative way — designed to result in learners who are engaged and energized about language arts! Features a series of 24 project-based activities.

The above photo was part of the A Night in the Museum lesson. My son created six different museum exhibits – the Zoo, Hall of Gems, Napoleonic Exhibit, the Moon Exhibit, Hall of Weapons, and Medieval Times.
The homeschool pack includes an access code to the StoryVisualizer software. Can I just say how much FUN this software is! You can take your own images, upload them into the app and use their backgrounds, text bubbles, and clip art to create your own stories. Here is a cartoon we made to demonstrate the crazy Ohio weather. It is called Star Wars Visits Ohio.
