When we had the opportunity to share our prior knowledge about shapes, we showed that we knew many things. So Ms. Alison challenged us to extend and deepen our knowledge by justifying our thinking. Even though we already knew many of the basic shape names, Ms. Alison wanted to know:
"What makes you say that name? How do you know?"
We explored shapes individually and discussed as a class. We also completed drawn and written reflections in our math journals.
We are a group of Kindergarten 1 students at an IB World School in Singapore. Our teacher is Miss Alison. Follow us on our blog and Twitter to see how much we're learning and growing!
