Maths - geometry

We have been learning about shapes and position words. Position words tell us where something is or where it is going. 

We use words like: On the cushion, on the mat, In front, behind, the back of the class, around, under, beside, between, middle, on top, in, through, out, off. 
We have also learned about turns and can make full and half turns. Quarter turns were new for us and can be tricky.

Task: Pick a picture of the blocks in a pattern (dont show your buddy). Using our maths words describe how to make the pattern. Remember to give accurate clear instructions.

Success Criteria:
  • I use the correct names for shapes 
  • I use our maths postiton words
  • I  give clear instructions about position
  • I follow postion instructions

My Shapes 

I use the correct names for shapes

I use our maths postiton words

I give clear instructions about position

I follow position instructions


I can: Follow position instructions because It is easy for me.

It was hard when: To use my position words.

I really liked: Making shapes with a buddy.

Kerri thinks

Eowyn, I think you do use the correct names for shapes and you are starting to use your position words. It can be tricky to use your words to tell where to put the shapes when pointing is so much easier! Keep on practising using those maths words and it will become easier. I am pleased you like making the shape patterns with a buddy, that activity and Simon says will help you to give and follow instructions using those maths position words.
