Stroud, Judith E.
Early Childhood Education Journal, v23 n1 p9-13 Fall 1995
Reviews studies suggesting benefits of block play for literacy development that provides actual reading and writing experiences. Suggests that block play centers can be literacy-enhanced with materials that are authentic, useful, and appropriate, including: thematic books, magazines, architectural blueprints, envelopes, and adding machine tape. Notes observations of preschool settings suggesting children spontaneously use such materials in literacy practices. (JW)
