...I love homeschooling!
Today we were playing with pattern shapes and Hannah had a large hexagon shape in front of her. I asked her to tell me about her shape and she said, "It's a square."
In much confusion I asked, "What do you mean it's a square? It's not a square, it's a hexagon. Can you try and explain?"
And she said, "Well, it's kind of like it's a box."
She went and picked up a cardboard box out of the laundry room, brought it to me and held it at an angle, "See, kind of like this."
I still wasn't getting it.
So she pointed to her shape again and said, "Well, just pretend there's a line here and here and here."
And then I saw it.
And to explain what she explained to me, I drew you a picture.
Look in order of top left, bottom left, top right, bottom right.
Let's just say I was/ I am quite impressed.
And then I explained that that shape is a cube.
I love being in on these discoveries that my children make.
