Early Learning With Block Play – Numeracy, Science, Literacy and So Much More! (FULL)

Professional Growth Opportunities

This is a one-day workshop for early learning educators from prekindergarten, kindergarten and Grade 1 to work collaboratively to discover and deepen their understandings around the many foundational skills that children develop during block play. Through concrete, hands-on activities, participants will experience and examine the many connections between block play and curricular outcomes, and the current research on the topic. Participants will have opportunity for reflection on their current practice, planning for block play and for creating a network of support.

Participants will:

  • Explore current research on block play in different domains.
  • Organize and plan for curricular outcomes as they are embedded in block play.
  • Create invitations with block play to encourage conceptual understandings.
  • Explore documentation and data collection during block play.
  • Share with others and create networks of support in your field.
