|My way of getting the 99th letter...|
|My group mate's way of identifying the 99th letter.. counting from 1 to 99.|
We had to something along this line, creating rectangles with 5 and 7 shapes. It was difficult, but with peers assistance and ideas, it was made possible.
Working together with peers in an appropriate environment is important. Teacher's often engage children in pair or group work, and it is not just to enhance a child's social skills, but to deepen his/her level of thinking. As i have seen today, one problem, many methods, many solutions. Getting the answer is not important, but how you get it matters! Exploring, discussion with friends, persistence and looking out for patterns do go hand in hand...
