This week we started our two week journey in the fascinating world of Geometry. We learned that there is just not one kind of triangle. Actually, there are many kinds of triangles but we focused on three (Equilateral, Isosceles, and Scalene). We then looked at Quadrilaterals which are any four sided shape (square, rectangle, rhombus, trapezoid, chevron). We moved on to polygons (pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, nonagon, decagon). Learning how to count in Greek really paid off during this session.
We can now count to ten in 21 different languages (English, Sign Language, Latin, Spanish, German, French, Greek, Japanese, Arabic with the Lebanese Dialect, Italian, Russian, Romanian, Swedish, Tagolog, Hebrew, Korean, Hungarian, Irish, Kiswahili, Welsh, Dutch/Flemmish, Polish, Serbo-Croation, Cebuano, and Malay).
Peek Into The Kindergarten Room:
Notice how two scalene triangles make an equilateral triangle, three isosceles make an equilateral triangle, and four small equilateral triangle make on bigger equilateral triangle. Your children have.
