The Blindfold

Here are two photos that stood out to me today as I was going through my photo album.

In the first photo, the young girl is doing the Binomial Cube blindfolded.



When she finished this work, she did the Trinomial Cube blindfolded. It was mesmerizing to watch. It drew silence from the entire room.

In the second photo, the same child is do the Money (coins) Mystery Bag work blindfolded.



These two images should remind all of us to present the blindfold more in our classrooms and to see the possibility of its use with so many materials.

Never thought about that, I may hint to my daughter to try it in her classroom next time she's looking for something to do.

One of my older students kept insisting on taking out the "spooning beans" work, so I invited him to do it with a blindfold and voila! Instant challenge! :) I love the idea of the binomial cube w/blindfold...
