“Promoting play contributes to early literacy development by increasing attention span, memory, creativity, and language and vocabulary skills. It also lays the foundation for logical mathematical thinking, scientific reasoning, and problem solving—things they’ll carry with them throughout their school years, says “Play = Learning,” a recent study by Dorothy Singer, a senior research scientist at Yale University’s Department of Psychology and Child Study Center.” By Abbe Klebanoff on July 1, 2009 School Library Journal

If you would like more information or wish to donate to the Lego Club please contact Carol Webb in the Turner Valley School Library learning commons.
