This month we explore Spatial Reasoning skills by making a quilt with Indian motifs! Spatial reasoning skills play a major role in later math achievement for preschoolers. Besides talking about numbers and their relationships to each other, we also need to talk about spatial relationships and shapes to help preschoolers prepare for later math learning! Spatial ability is the ability to mentally picture and manipulate objects - rotating them, looking at them from different angles, observing how objects may fit together and more. Incorporating Spatial Talk also helps - talk about the geometric shapes in this quilt making activity, how big or small the pieces are and their relative position with each other.
Excuse Me, Is This India?
Written By Anushka Ravishankar and Illustrated by Anita Leutwiler
Anna's aunt has come back from India and she gives Anna a quilt with pictures of all the things she has seen in India. Anna cuddles into the quilt and then her story begins - From an airplane to cows and crows, a little girl to bandicoots, from autorickshaws to elephants in front of the temple, from shops to airports again, the story moves with a fluidity which makes you want to keep turning pages.Subscribe to Toka Junior Gift a Box
