Round and round - spot the rotational learner!

Round and round - spot the rotational learner!

For our rotational learners anything that goes round and round is great! 

  • wheels
  • turning lids
  • hand whisk
  • watching the washing machine on spin cycle
  • rolling down a hill (or rolling anywhere in fact!)

Children exploring a rotational schema may have a preference for turning taps on and off, for winding and unwinding string, and playing with hoops. Children with a rotational schema are often energetic and can be seen running and spinning in circles, twisting ribbons, scarves and ropes. 

Can you spot rotational learning in this 1 minute film?

There's loads of ideas for rotational schema in movement in this film:

  • Balls that roll
  • Tubes and balloons that can entice a spin
  • Sliding and spinning on the floor (especially fast!)
  • Rocking, rolling, swinging that leads to turning
  • Being swung in the air

You just need an empty space!
