E is really enjoying painting; she’s making some paintings to sell. She wants to buy herself some more dolls! 🙂 And when the big sister paints, what does little sister want?
She wants to paint too, of course! I gave her a paintbrush and a cup of water, and she painted happily on the chalkboard, on the other side of the easel from E!
G conoció el transportador Montessori. En vez de empezar con un transportador en forma de semicírculo, empezamos con uno de 360 grados. Le ayuda a entender que un ángulo completo forma un círculo, y que un círculo tiene 360 grados. No es difícil introducir estos temas a los 7 años cuando tienes los materiales adecuados.
I introduced G to the Montessori protractor. Instead of beginning with the semicircle protractor, we start with this one with 360 degrees. It helps him understand that a complete angle forms a circle, and that a circle has 360 degrees. It isn’t hard at all to introduce these concepts at age 7, when you have the right materials!
We used our circle fraction material, and began measuring the pieces. Here G discovers that the 1/4 piece measures 90 degrees. He also recognized that this was a right angle.
And he measured a piece of each circle, from 1 to 1/10. It was a great lesson.
