Aaliyah’s learning through mathematics

Making a dinosaur

Analysis – what learning is happening here?

Aaliyah is showing that she can manage herself and relate to others in the classroom. She waited her turn to share and select the shapes she wanted.

Her interest in this activity is something I need to explore. Her usual short attention span and frustration with given activities did not happen. She was able to wait, share, and to persevere until the activity was complete. This may be due to an interest in mathematical ideas.
