Block building is important work around here at the moment.
While he is busy creating ‘The Wizardly World of Wizaldo the Wizard’ he is also learning maths skills such as number, shape, weight, volume, grouping and sorting.
He’s experimenting with concepts like balance and gravity. He’s learning and using new language.
He’s practising spatial awareness skills, eye hand co-ordination and refining both small and large muscle movements.
His imagination is blossoming. He’s making a representation of his ideas. He’s planning, creating and problem solving.
And when ‘Godzilla’ is released he is also learning about cause and effect and to cope with set backs.
So you see… block play is very important work.
