Compass directions…

Hi Blog world,

Yesterday, my teacher and I went downtown and we worked on compass directions, along with crossing streets, landmarks, and crowd travel.  I did well on my landmarks, crowd travel and crossing streets.  However, I am still learning the compass directions.  Since I have a good grip on the cardinal directions my teacher decided that I could start learning my sub cardinal directions.  This was very confusing to me at first but after practicing them I am getting a grip on this.

To make this lesson easier, we had our compass with us.  Sadly, “Bob the compass” was taken back to the store, and my teacher brought a new compass. The compass I joking named “R2D2” from the star wars movie, because the compass looked like that robot.

These compass directions will come in handy if someone gives me directions such as.  “The food store is at 123 East Street two blocks from the furniture store.”

Have any of you had to help someone who is visually impaired or blind by giving them compass directions? Tell me in the comments below. 

Blog  soon,

Amanda Gene
