Did you know that playing with your child is an important learning tool. Children of all ages learn science, math, and reading through play everyday.
When children play with Blocks, they are learning about space, shapes and how to construct. Blocks are a very important part of play. The types of blocks that are best, are the natural wooden blocks. These leave for more of an imagination, and a more natural material with touch. A wide variety of shapes and sizes are important too. Children will learn how the blocks work through geometry, by how the blocks work together.
In a block center, children should be allowed to have other items intergrated with their blocks such as cars, animals, or people. Watch how the children learn and play, you will be amazed!
