Making learning opportunities fun is one of the best ways to keep minds active during these unusual and challenging times. Because many of us are suddenly finding ourselves at home a lot more these days, there's an increased need for fun and educational home activities to keep our kids engaged - and Lego is a great tool for that!

So, if you're lucky enough to have a set of Lego bricks at home, this week I've come up with a 30-day challenge of Lego activities you can use to incorporate as part of your new daily routine at home.

Are you trying to save paper in the classroom or at home? Is your school encouraging more use of technology and less traditional paper worksheets? Over the past year, I've been working on building digital mystery options to start a new line that will help teachers cater for their classrooms if technology resources are needed. These mystery games take me a while to make, so at the moment I don't have too many available. But, this week I'd like to share with you my latest digital mystery creation for the spooky season coming up, The Case of the Halloween Heist! I'll include a free trial so that you can see how it works. It might be a fun option to keep your students engaged and learning in the build up to Halloween.
