Location Language

In Maths at the moment we are focusing on using location language.  We are practicing:

  • Using everyday location words to follow and give oral directions involving several steps
  • Using left and right to describe position of objects in relation to self & other objects
  • Locating, following and describing short paths on simple maps, mazes or models

Today we played “Copy Cats”.  Can you explain to mum or dad what we had to do?  What location words did you use?

Here is the grid we used.  You could play a game against someone at home…


What are some games you have at home where you have to understand & use location words when you play?

  1. Looks like so much fun. Wish we did things like that when I was at school. I love listening to Jessica’s stories when she comes home from school.

  2. Thanks for the feedback Maryanne. It was a lot of fun and I could hear so much great location language. We didn’t want to stop!

  3. If you want to play this game you need to know your location words because the coppycat won’t know what to do.

    Bye for now
