Yesterday evening an amazing thing happened. After years (yes, years!!) of trying to come up with a material that would help my students practise demonstrative pronouns (this/that/these/those = t/t/t/t), I finally got it! 🎉 🎉 🎉 🎉
As you know my Montessori inspired classroom has shelves filled with various self-study materials but there was nothing for t/t/t/t. Yesterday, out of the blue: EUREKA!!
Perspective! The kids were learning about it in their art class recently. I can use it to show whether something's near or far!
And so the creating had begun 😄
First up, my favourite: picture cards. All the pictures come from google images search, I've had them on my computer for ages (sadly I can't remember where I got them from exactly). This is what I made:
Creating the perspective was a fun challenge 😅 I think it turned out quite good. So at this point I was sitting and staring at this tiger thinking "what next, what next ...." and so the tiger moved ... and then it multiplied ... and then changed into other animals 😁
I kid you not, I was ecstatic 😅 I dug up a material I made some time ago to practise t/t/t/t but never got round to actually using it with students. Only now I felt it was complete! I made the animal cards to match the list on the material below. To use the board you need two dice: 4 sided one and 12 sided one. Click on the board to download it.
