Do the boys in your class monopolize the block corner? Is clean up time a struggle or a teachable moment? Participants will learn about the developmental stages of building and how to set up a block corner. We will discuss techniques to integrate block building with other areas of the curriculum and provide strategies and games to make clean up a positive experience. This interactive workshop will focus on practical ways to turn your block corner into an exciting learning center that fosters independence, cognitive development, and cooperative play.
