It’s time someone stood up and said, “HOORAY FOR BLOCKS”!
It breaks my heart when teachers say, “They took my blocks away!”
I think if educators did a better job of explaining the benefits of a block center we might still have them in our classrooms! You just might be surprised how many Common Core State Standards can be reinforced with blocks!
If you would like to have printable copies of the files for the various parts of this month's activities, just go to the Downloads page where you will find links to all of them in PDF format.

As you browse through the activities this month, you may notice that we have added buttons to the bottom of each page. The Home Icon will return you to this page at any time. The Social Share Icon will let you share the activities with your friends on Facebook, Twitter and other social accounts.
Other icons allow you to use the Full Screen mode, read some Help information, and Zoom In or Zoom Out. Please take time to try out these button and decide for yourself which ones, if any, might be useful to you when visiting my web site.
