The 4s block is where the outermost electrons are located (valence electrons) rather than the 3d block. When you write out the electron configuration for Magnesium, for example, the electron configuration is [Arg] 4s^2 3d^5 where the valence electrons are located in 4s with 2 valence electrons. I hope this little outline helps.
