Building Blocks™
Preparing Young Children for School

Building Blocks had positive effects on mathematics achievement.
Building Blocks is a mathematics curriculum that aims to develop preschool children’s knowledge of mathematics following early mathematics learning trajectories. The Building Blocks curriculum includes whole-group and small-group instruction, center activities, and computer activities, as well as activities for the children’s families to do at home to support classroom learning. The activities are intentionally sequenced based on the developmental progression of children’s mathematical learning.
