Structured block play: introduction of 3D

By Isabelle Gilet

 

Our PK1 classes were asked to reproduce a structure from a model or blueprint. It is a challenging activity that boosts spatial learning. Building structures encourages a child to test spatial relationships and mentally rotate objects in the mind’s eye. It also helps in the development of hand eye coordination. Learning math concepts through manipulation and games is the best way to make our young children curious and motivated to master a concept. Learning should always be fun!
