Over the past few weeks, we have been looking at block building and how we can create different buildings. Block building is important because it helps with language, and conversations. The students used different books and pictures to help get them started. Block building also helps in motor skills and hand-eye coordination, spatial skills, creative problem solving, social skills, and most important for ell learners language skills. The following website provides even more information. http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1G1-109738135.html. Lastly you will see some pictures below of block building that we have been doing.
