Other Examples:

  • Places blocks parallel to one another and at right angles (with the perceptual support of the blocks themselves) to build a "road."
  • Understands 'turning' at an angle when walking or riding a tricycle or other riding toy.

Help your student become a(n) Intuitive Angle Builder

A variety of experiences going places and playing with  toys allows children to experience turns and angles. Provide lots of language support (e.g., "We have to turn here to go to the gym").

Note: Use instruction from Chapter 9 and everyday navigation in Chapter 7 to also emphasize angles and turns.
