What else do you use it for?
Focus in on angles so that the rest of the shape isn't distracting them, for pure angle work or looking at spinners with probability and watch videos on youtube or iplayer without dodgy adverts appearing at the side.
Anything literacy linked anyone?
Ok, thinking on my feet here.
You could use it to look at parts of letters to see the connections between say how an a, c and d are formed.
Focus in on the last word in a sentence, and the beginning word of the next sentence and guess what the two sentences could be? This would work with a question too.
Look at a letter pattern and guess what the word is, gradually revealing a bit more of the word.
Hadn't thought about thinking skills ideas...will be great in registration time as well.
Thank you, more always welcome as well.
