Blocks! Blocks! Blocks! Pre-K Loves Blocks!

My Students

This year my pre-k students get to move into a brand new classroom. At this time, our classroom has no wooden blocks. Children can learn many concepts through block play. Blocks provide an excellent opportunity for social and physical development and enhance creativity.

Our school is a Title 1 School.

We have many children on free or reduced lunches. It seems like our school gets more and more budget cuts and there is no money left to buy anything more than construction paper at the end of each year. I teach at a public school in Oklahoma. My pre-K class is filled with 21 students who are busy and love to build and make things. Their imagination runs wild.

My Project

Having a variety of blocks and block play materials is important because block play teaches coordination, visual perception, fine motor coordination, initiative, cooperation, compromise, and problem-solving. Block play also teaches shapes, patterns, measuring, one-to-one correspondence, symmetry, cause and effect, and many other skills. Much of these skills are learned by a child's own exploration and curiosity.

The funding of this project will impact my current students and future students for many years to come.

The skills learned through block play will impact my students not only in pre-K but through their years. All individuals need to know how to problem solve, and communicate, and compromise. These skills need to be learned early and with many opportunities for practice. That is what block play will do for my students.
