• An Aboriginal Painting that had aboriginal symbols depicting a variety of food and people. Introduction The teacher gathers students on the carpet and draws a circle with a dot at the center on the IWB and questions children about their feedback on it and expects for mathematical terms circle, round, one, center, radius, diameter and circumference. She concludes that a single picture represents more mathematical concepts.
Another activity that I took part in was bubble painting. This was where I put paint in a tray and added water. Once this was mixed properly I got the children to use a straw and blow through it to make bubbles. Once the bubbles were there a piece of paper was placed over them to create a bubble effect picture. There were two different trays of which one was purple and the other one was orange. This is so that they were able to make their own choice on what colour they wanted to use.
In terms of numeracy, the children were drawing a variety of shapes in the sand which allowed me to use new words with them to further develop their vocabulary. I also used everyday words to help reinforce their existing vocabulary in a new context.
UNIT 312 - Understand Current National and Organisational Frameworks for Mathematics The aims and importance of learning provision for numeracy development are to ensure all students understand that maths is a vital part of everyday life and will continue to be used throughout their life. Primary schools will teach students
[The learning goal states that the focus learner will be able to formulate learning that all circles are similar through application of transformation techniques (translation and dilation), by the end of the learning segment. The IEP goal states requires the focus learner to describe relationships between similar geometric shapes
By taking advantage of the children's high interest and engagement in different areas of play, educators can plan for play based activities that encourage learning and development in children. In order to do this the teacher needs to set up an environment that stimulates various play activities. Providing the children with a multitude of materials and props for different activities, will give them the freedom of choice to choose what they wish to use and how they want to use it. There must be a period of time structured into the daily schedule that will allow for play based learning activities, and reflection on them. Children can learn not only by engaging in play, but by discussing what they were
• Mathematical development outcomes. During the Foundation Phase, children develop their skills, knowledge and understanding of mathematics through oral, practical and play activities. In our setting children`s mathematical development is supported by different activities. Children are encouraged to develop their understanding of measurement units, investigate the properties of shapes and develop early ideas of reasoning and basic mathematical procedures through practical opportunities. These opportunities include cooking, exploring and counting activities.
E100 TMA 04 Activity are planned to extend children learning and development area as they learn new words and able to build on their communication and language by describing and explaining what they are doing and asking question. This also extends their vocabulary example the children enjoy playing with weighing scales so I plan activities using different resources such as lentils instead of sand or dry pasta to learn numbers, sizes, quantities etc.
: In this vivid picture book kids discover a variety of shapes all around them. This book help children to learn about the shapes as well as some Spanish words. For instance, rounds are tortillas and moon, squares are board game, clock, and photo frames, park, and fountain, rectangles are ice cream cart, stone metates, and flag, and furthermore triangles are slices of water melon and quesadillas. The good thing about book is that there is a glossary at the end of the book which translate the Spanish words.How would use this book in the class: During the class time we can cut the paper in different shapes, like square, round, rectangle, and triangle, and let the students to match every shape. Also, we can ask the children about the objects,
For this week’s discussion question, I watched the video Sorting Commercial Manipulates with Child 33. In the video a little girl is asked to sort out keys. All together, there are 20 keys that differ in size, color, and shape (shape being how many holes, for key rings, each key
MODULE: 3 DURATION: 2-3 days Summary In the second Kindergarten math Cornerstone, students will take on the role of monument designers. Students will examine monuments from the National Mall, create their own unique monuments, and compare them to their peers’ creations. Following the 5E instructional model, students will be challenged to apply their understanding of describing and comparing attributes of objects and shapes. Students will have the opportunity to construct viable arguments and attend to precision as they plan and create their monuments. Teachers will guide students and provide feedback with targeted questions and prompting support.
Reflection chapter 12 EDU531-SG1 Maria Koubrina 1. Chapter 12 “Helping Students Understand Maps, Globes, and Graphics” offers an information about simplest ways to explain children the logic and the structure of maps, globes, and graphs creation. Author stresses the importance of students’ comprehension of the “birds-eye view” concept before raising the bar on the requirements of the map reading and general use.
This book introduces different types of polygons through objects we find around us everyday. Shape Up! uses cheese slices, pretzel sticks, a slice of bread, a pencil, and more to introduce various polygons, flat shapes with varying numbers of straight sides. Children can learn simple geometry with this playful but informative math concept book that takes the fear out of math and puts the fun back in. There 's a wisecracking cartoon kid who accompanies readers throughout and makes silliness and math seem to go together like pretzels and salt. It 's a tremendous learning package that will be as pleasing to math teachers as it is to the kids who will probably discover this book on their own. The illustrations by Nancy Tobin capture the reader’s eye with her colorful and aesthetically appealing pictures.
The Visual Sense: These exercises assist with the discrimination between similar and differing objects. The Pink Tower exercise assists in the development of the visual discrimination of sizes in three dimensions. The preparation of the child for mathematical concepts such as the decimal system, geometry and volume is achieved through the exploration of this material.
