The kits below are recommended by
a range of authors addressing the problem of how many and what
types of blocks should be stocked in a classroom of about 14 children. These include
guides by Stanton and Weisberg of the Bank Street School (Play
Equipment for the Nursery School),
Wellhousen & Kieff (A Constructivist Approach to Block Play
in Early Childhood) and Hirsch(The Block Book). These author's books on Block
Play stress certain activities utilizing blocks in Pre-K and
Kindergarten classrooms settings. A few of our corresponding blocks
differ in minor respects from those suggested but are
functionally the same. We sell both whole kits and half kits.
Blocks Kits come in Premium Hard Maple (all firsts) and Hard Maple First &
Seconds. To see a bigger picture of the wood

study what's in a kit, click on the List of Pieces. The pictures give a visual
image, but the "List of Pieces" is the definitive list of what is in a kit.
