Over the past week the grade 2’s and 3’s have been exploring, describing and identifying 2-dimensional shapes. The photos below demonstrate students’ understanding of the relationship between various pattern blocks. The same pictures can be made using different sets of blocks. Scroll beyond the slideshow to find learning links to games, songs and tutorials connected to the expectations that have been covered.
The grade 2’s were excited to have a visit from Mrs. Zandstra to read Grandfather Tang’s Story and guide their learning using Tangrams. You can find a link to the story and find out more about Tangrams here.
