Math in the Blocks Center

This week I'll be posting links from the blog archive about blocks and the blocks center.

We can use the blocks center as a place to practice and develop math and counting skills. Here are a couple of activities that we did that reinforced math concepts.

How Many Blocks Long? - Kids used the blocks as unstandard measures to see how long/tall they were.

Counters - My stash of lids found their way in the classroom again this past week. I placed them in a center to be counters - along with some cube blocks, counting chips, and "jewels" from an old board game. (Of course, the kids created a structure instead.)
