Summary

The value of block building in early childhood programs is reinforced in this new and comprehensive book. Current issues of interest to educators and parents receive special attention: how gender influences block play, establishing home-school connections, choosing and implementing relevant assessments, strategies for incorporating IEP/IFSP goals for children with special needs and abilities, and findings regarding brain development and play. Theory into Practice activities help the user take those important first steps to implementing the strategies discussed.

  • Scenarios demonstrate the developmental stages of block play
  • Guidelines for starting block building programs provide constructive strategies in early childhood classrooms
  • Exploration of teacher/parent roles in facilitating block play enhances child's learning processes
  • Techniques to include children with special needs expand outreach of block and building activities
