Recently，Iguana class often move their classroom outside. Let’s have a look what they’re doing.
They draw two squares on the ground. Put some toys in one square.
The challenge is to put symmetrical pattern into the other square.
Normallywe play these games on paper. On the ground, this is the first time.
Under the drive of interest, children overcome a degree of difficulty, then another.
line segments on the ground make addition visible. The game of counting lattices made children practice counting and learning the real meaning of addition when they were playing.
Within these activities, they practice experiences of counting, unit, patterns, shapes and part-whole relationships. Children combine these experiences to solve different kinds of problems and challenges in daily lives.
Mathematics is such a magic thing. It’s in every aspect of our lives. A piece of chalk and several construction toys can also be an interesting math lesson.
