Entry 5 | Shapes are everywhere!

Look around you. Shapes are everywhere.

It was a meaningful visit to Singapore Arts Museum. Not only did we get to see the different shapes used to convey meanings in each masterpiece, we got to see different Math concepts in them too. Sorting, patterning, doubling up and geometry were some of the Math concepts we saw.

Today's lesson was on shapes too. We were given 7 tangram pieces and our task of the day was to form squares of different sizes.

It was definitely easy to form 1 square with just the one square shaped piece we had. We enjoyed forming squares with more pieces too!

Watch this video to find out how you can make the squares.

Remember... Learning begins with play! Our children should be encouraged to freely explore all materials while they discover how they work. Have fun forming shapes!
