Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v15 n2 p173-80 Spr-Sum 2001
This longitudinal study correlated block play performance at age 4 to mathematics achievement for third-, fifth-, and seventh-graders, and high school students. No correlation was found between block performance and standardized mathematics tests or grades in elementary school. Beginning in middle school and through high school grades, a positive correlation was demonstrated between preschool block performance and mathematics achievement. (Author/KB)
