Session 5: Friday, 27th September 2013

Off we go to the museum!! 
In a group of 4 we make our way down to the SAM museum to look for art piece that we can use to teach our children concepts.
This is a brilliant idea for teachers to look for inspiration beyond their classrooms environment. Shapes were the first obvious math concepts that we can highlight to the children in all of the art pieces. Take a look at the art piece on the right.

What are the numeracy experiences we can teach through this art 
  • Patterns
  • tangrams
  • addition
  • subtraction
  • sequencing

And this?

Back at Seed classroom..
The class continue their numeracy experiences with exploration of tangrams. Previously we were finding ways to create rectangles using the given number of tangrams. In this session we were asked to find many ways to create square using the tangrams.

Exploring tangrams I felt gave the children the hands on experience:; allowing  them to visualize the images and help them to develop spatial reasoning skills.
