Block Play And It’s Importance in Early Education   Wooden blocks have become a staple in high quality preschools and early childhood environments. These popular manipulatives have a long history in the early education field and provide incredible insight into language, math skill, social skill, and the artistic and physical development of a child. This post will hopefully assist in understanding the array of developmental opportunities blocks can bring to a child as well as focus on the background of blocks (specifically unit blocks) and discuss how a child’s block play aids in the learning of each discipline.
