EJ wishes y’all a fantastic new year.

 Education is the essence of peace, so we shall focus on our children, the ones that don’t know and have to learn … leave religion aside and focus on the human interpersonal relations… keep prejudices away and listen …

live, learn and educate …


RULER and COMPASS

G´day y´all,

This is a book that was offered to me by a friend at school. I need to say that it is a interesting and fascinating booklet. “Practical Geometrical Constructions”. Indeed the things you are shown are flabbergasting and have a solid ´WOW`effect. It is an interesting guide for Nomenclature, that you can use additional to your Nomenclature that is available in a Montessori classroom. I need to say that for a lower elementary child, the handling of a compass is often challenging enough (and that  does by times last until secondary) yet this could be something that the teacher can construct, next to a small group of children, like a presentation, to show what is possible to construct.

I think it is fascinating. It could be a springboard for exploration along regular polygons, equilateral triangles etc. The designing of shapes with a compass can and is indeed a special sort of art. Plus, there is no better way to explore and learn those different names of shapes and all the additional terminologies that need to be known within the geometrical realm.

I can recommend that little book. It is a sweet little addition to your albums and other resources.
