Hey y’all! Today is a HAPPY day and even a HAPPY Monday because we only have four days until Thanksgiving break around here! Yes, it’s still freezing (it even snowed a little last night… have I mentioned I live in North Texas…and it snowed mid-November!!!) and we are still restless, but life must go on!
Today we started our 2D shape unit with a bang!!! I’m not going to lie… I was all kinds of ready to take a break from counting coins. We will continue to review during math stations and small group, but our brains needed a breather!!
Here’s a little chart I made to keep up in my classroom throughout our shape learning (ignore my crooked handwriting!!)
I do like to expose my students to lots of shapes… even if we don’t focus on every single one of them 🙂
After discussing and reviewing my students practiced drawing some of the new shapes in our math spirals that we learned today. They definitely felt like big kids with all this new vocabulary!
My goal is to update my Shapin’ Up unit this week… give it a little makeover and add new activities to it, so be on the look-out for that! Until then, have a happy week!!! And remember, a holiday is right around the corner 🙂
