Travis traced the letter R today and then we found three materials beginning with R to make our 3-D models.
First up was upper case R, using a ruler and rope (ok, ours was more string, but perhaps you could call it a thin rope).
He placed the ruler straight, and then had to ponder how the rope could twist in such a way that he ended up with R. He remembered that first you make a loop so it looks like a P…
…then just needed to angle the final bit of rope out.
For lower case r, we headed outside to the driveway and found a few small rocks.
“I can do this!” Travis said with confidence, since r is in his name. In no time, our rocks were in an r.
