Review: Stages Blocks

Stages Blocks finally came in. They were ordered from the manufacturer’s website in January and arrived 6 months later because they were on backorder. They are made by Stages Learning and included 40 colorful blocks and 120 cards. You can also download a free app that gives even more building ideas. I like these blocks because not only do you get the critical thinking aspect from building what’s on the cards but you can do grouping activities with them or even counting.


I do think the first 20 cards that come with the blocks are unnecessary. They only show 1 block so there isn’t much thinking required to complete those. The blocks are a good size for little hands and like that they are colorful. Our daughter’s favorite thing to do is make her own things with them.

Every state has different laws of what needs to be taught and what you need to do as far as testing. This website is very helpful for information by state. You’ll need to get a curriculum that you feel well be a good fit for your family. There are religious and secular (non-religious) curriculums. I have chosen Timberdoodle. They are a hands-on curriculum, offer both religious and non, you can customize your kits and they even have a scheduler to help you know what needs to get done each week.


Here is what we do for preschool. I did these myself; it’s not Timberdoodle.

Monday: books (she picks one and 1 about letters), game based on letters, 2 workbook pages (lette…

1-6: story time, dance and singing, play time

She doesn’t wake during the night or take naps because then she’ll stay up forever.
