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 our maths postiton words
  • I  give clear instructions about position
  • I follow postion instructions

My Shapes 

I use the correct names for shapes

I use our maths postiton words

I give clear instructions about position

I follow position instructions


I can: match the picture

It was hard when: I didn't have the right colour shape

I really liked: making patterns

Kerri thinks

Ryan you use the correct names for the shape and our position words to match the patterns. It is tricky to match the patterns when there are not enough shapes of the right colours. You did a great job at changing the card so it would work for you.
