Maths - geometry

We have been learning about shapes and position words. Position words tell us where something is or where it is going. 

We use words like: On the cushion, on the mat, In front, behind, the back of the class, around, under, beside, between, middle, on top, in, through, out, off. 
We have also learned about turns and can make full and half turns. Quarter turns were new for us and can be tricky.

Task: Pick a picture of the blocks in a pattern (dont show your buddy). Using our maths words describe how to make the pattern. Remember to give accurate clear instructions.

Success Criteria:
  • I use the correct names for shapes 
  • I use our maths postiton words
  • I  give clear instructions about position
  • I follow postion instructions

My Shapes 



I use the correct names for shapes


I use our maths postiton words



I give clear instructions about position


I follow position instructions




Reflection

I can: follow position instructions

It was hard when: I need to use math position words

I really liked: getting to learn new maths 


Kerri thinks



You can use the maths position words and the correct names for shapes. I am pleased that you enjoyed learning new maths and I could tell that you loved the outside in the playground learning. It can be tricky to give instructions using your maths words when you can pint your hand and touch the shapes. Keep on practising and it will become easier!
