My students are an energetic group of children that love to learn. They enjoy exploring new concepts that have a hands-on component. They love cooperative learning in small groups and taking charge of their own learning.
My classroom consists of children from military families and families that work on a military installation.
Education is important to these families. The future is in my classroom and has the ability to go around the world as my students move to other communities.
Young children love to build and create things with their hands. The block center which includes a cabinet to store them effectively allows them to experiment with the world around them. It also helps them to develop social skills while working together.
Quality blocks help the children develop spatial awareness skills that are crucial to their growth.
In a world of technology and video games, it is very important to remember to keep children involved in active learning opportunities that blocks provide.
Who knows if the next architect or builder will have their start in our classroom while using these beautiful blocks that you have so graciously provided?
