While I have a BIG date tonight watching Ice Age in the living room with my two little guys (pretty jealous huh?!), I wanted to pop in real quick to share an activity with you that we did today :)
This week was all about two-dimensional shapes in Math down in Kinder-world. We only introduce circles, triangles, squares, and rectangles at this point in the year, but we go to the extreme to make sure they know every single detail and attribute about these little shapes!
With Thanksgiving around the corner, I wanted something I could do theme-wise and integrate with shapes! So.... Turkey Shapes was born!
Today we were definitely "Gobblin' Up Shapes", hence the little turkey I put together to accompany these darling crafts to hang up in the hallway.
Each student created a different turkey shape (circles, triangles, rectangles, and squares) and they had to describe their turkey telling how many sides and vertices their turkey had.
Here are a few examples:
(This was my teacher example)
