And I wanted to push on with the spatial reasoning and pattern making. Once again, it was going to be pattern making first up each morning.
Day 1 of making patterns and my new class surprised me. I put out a variety of materials - pattern blocks, Cuisenaire rods and tangram shapes - to see what they would produce.
And I could not believe how many of them produced pictures - symmetrical undoubtedly - but pictures just the same. So were they making patterns? Is a symmetrical picture a pattern?
Monsters and funny faces:
So - nice pictures. Were they patterns?
I'll leave that one with you.
