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 correct colours

My Shapes (photos of kids)

I use the correct names for shapes


I use the correct colours 



Reflection

I can: Find a circle and know the colours blue and red.

It was hard when: I had to use lots of different shapes.

I really liked: Playing with the shapes.

Kerri thinks


Daniel, you are learning your shapes and your colours. You can match the shapes and colours to make the pattern in the picture. Keep on practising those colours and shape names to help you with your mahts learning.

Whakawhanaungatanga,



We have been learning all about whakawhanaungatanga and what it means. We think it is all about getting along better, including everybody and being in a team.

When we are showing Whakawhanaungatanga we will :

 
See:  people sharing and noticing other people

Hear:  kind words, encouraging words like "ka pai", "good job”, “can I help?"

Think about: about other people, listen and share.


Task: Listen to your buddy and learn some things about them. Work together to create a poster sharing what you have learned about each other. Remember to practise using encouraging words, to share ideas and to notice how you your buddy might be feeling. 

 Success Criteria:     
  • I used kind words.
  • I listened to my buddy and found out something new.
  • I shared my ideas with my buddy.
  • I show whakawhanaungatanga in and out of the playground.

Reflection
I used kind words.
 




I listened to my buddy and found out something new.
 




I shared my ideas with my buddy.
 



I show whakawhanaungatanga in and out of the playground.
 


I show whakawhanaungatanga when: sharing the bucket and spade in the sandpit.

It was hard when: big kids took the spade


I really liked: helping kids.

Kerri Thinks
 


You notice other people and share with them. You use kind words and I can see you love to help people when they are sad. You show whakawhanaungatanga in and out of the classroom!

When I grow up

My favourite thing at school is the i-pads. I want to be a racing car driver with a booster.






I can see you love to use the i-pads to help your learning. I wonder how fast you will go in your racing car with the booster?
