Today I am thinking about mathematics. In looking across the year, studying pictures, I found these two examples of thinking/learning relatable to math.
Math, like language arts, and any other discipline, should always be taught in a relatable context.
Children often choose beads in the art area of our classroom as a choice. This is an excellent example of an advantage to work with patterns. In the photo you can see this child is working on a two bead pattern.
Another photo highlights a child working with dominoes. This child is placing dominoes side by side. The sides touching have dots that when added together equal seven.
“Among the buzz of children’s learning, being aware is key to supporting thinking/learning in a relatable context.” Darrell
