__Connecting with dots in Day 5__
We often provide children with Dot to Dot activities such as connecting
the dots from 1 to 10 or 1 to 20. Upon completing the all the dots, the
children will be amazed to what picture it turn to be. What I’m experiencing
today with connecting the dots was a different concept at all. Unlike the other
activities for the pass days, I am surprised that I was able to do the activity
without any difficulty. This is truly an accomplishment for me.

The first activity that we had was to connect 4 dots to create polygons.
I also understand the fact that polygons always have straight lines. From the
activities, we also explore the many ways to find the area of the polygons such
as:

·
Bisecting

·
Cut and paste

·
Look for half of the rectangle

·
Subtracting

One interesting equation that I learned today to find the area of a
polygon

Area
of polygon ( x + 1)

Let x = no of dots inside

A = area of polygon

Area = x + y/2

y = number of dots on the
side
