Classic Block

The classic block looks just like the classic editor, but it’s in block form. Custom TinyMCE buttons are found in this block.

In order to add a classic block, click on the Block Inserter icon.

You can also type /classic and hit enter in a new paragraph block to add one quickly.

Detailed instructions on adding blocks can be found here.

Block Toolbar

Each block has its own block-specific controls that allow you to manipulate the block right in the editor. The classic block offers the ability to edit as HTML, duplicate, or convert to blocks :
