*Do not say, “Show me a big circle”/ “give me a small square”-
Give collection and say "give me a larger triangle"
When using unfamiliar nouns with children, DO NOT use adjectives as it will confuse the children!
Do not say, "4 times more than!- it is ambiguous,instead, say "4 times as many as or 4 more than"
The activity I liked for today would be: Problem 18-making square with tangrams
The day ended with learning all about angles. The most interesting way of creating a 180 degrees straight line was tearing the angles of the triangle and putting them together to form a stragiht line! Who would have thought!
