How Does Your Classroom Stack Up?
Adams, Polly K.; Parham, Jaynie
Initial discussion concerns unit blocks and large blocks, general recommendations on the number of blocks to be provided to students in the primary grades, and a rationale for using blocks in primary school classes. It is asserted that the goals of block building activities are based on the promotion of children's physical, social, cognitive, and emotional development. These goals are easily met when activities are planned and some guidelines are followed. Three approaches to planning, including the use of task cards, sentence strips, and idea cards, are described and illustrated. It is concluded that unit blocks and large blocks offer children many opportunities for learning and fun. (RH)
