Blocks In Grades 2

Here’s a photo of our second grade classroom.  This is one of the few teachers I know who tries to continue the use of blocks during class time beyond kindergarten.  I think it is important to provide building opportunities, whether unstructured like this or structured beyond kindergarten.  When I taught third grade, I always had a take apart center where I would put out old tools and old typewriters, electronics, and other stuff to take apart.  This is especially important for our boys, I think.  I know that many engineers, like myself, recall having closets full of taken apart stuff in our childhoods.
