- Seven white cards with geometric figures drawn in a thin blue line
Invite the child to come and work with you. Tell the child that for today’s work, we are going to need a mat. Have the child unroll a mat. Bring him over to the shelf and show him the basket, giving the child the name of the material. Have him bring over the entire basket, placing it in the top right corner of the mat. Have the child sit your left.
(Prepare for the lesson in the same way as above.)
- Take out the sphere from the basket.
- Feel the sphere in your hands as in Presentation 1.
- Allow the child to feel the sphere and as he is doing so say, “That is a sphere”.
- Ask the child, “Can you put the sphere on the mat?”
- The child should then place the sphere on the mat.
- Take out the cube and repeat in the same way as with the sphere.
- Take out the cylinder and repeat in the same way as above.
- Then do a three-period lesson for: sphere, cube, and cylinder.
In a tray of sand, gently roll one shape at a time to see what forms it can make.
