- Child builds a large structure by making a combination of pattern blocks over and over and then fitting them together.
Help your student become a(n) Shape Composer—Units of Units
These activities provide activities that involve units of units and intentional spatial structuring by children. In the Tiling Tetrominoes example, children might tile the grid by actually using three levels units (large squares) of units (a square or a "T" tetrominoe) of units (small squares). Discuss the many structures, or spatial patterns, with children explicitly.
