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 (don’t show your buddy). Using our maths words describe how to make the pattern. Remember to give accurate clear instructions.

You use the correct names for the shapes and some of our maths position words to help give your buddy instructions about how to make the pattern. It is tricky to give clear instucions with your words when you can point with your hand. Keep on practising and it will get eaiser and easier.
