our curriculum instructed us to make one of these, and I’m excited we did. It’s a really neat tool. I’m pretty certain I don’t understand all the ins-and-outs, but this is what you make when you count by 3’s.
and this is the process of counting by 4’s. Naomi discovered that counting by 6’s creates the same star. And, she has been playing with it all afternoon making all kinds of patterns. Who knew learning could be fun?! 😉
Perhaps some of you know how to use the circle for even more learning opportunities?
