2-D Shapes Unit Is Underway
For the last 2 weeks, we have been working hard on identifying our 2-D flat shapes, counting corners, counting sides, and having fun with different centers. We just wrapped up one of the books that is in our Flat Shape 2-D Unit. The students had a great time reading the book and buttering(highlighting) our popcorn words. We are going to practice reading our books a couple more days this week before we take them home. Next up with our shape unit is some sorting shapes, our edible 2-D flat shapes activities, positional words, and using other objects in the environment to create other flat shapes.
Here is a sample of what our booklets looked like:
This booklet was a fun activity to integrate across the curriculum. We used our math standards along with some reading standards. We assessed the students over 2-D shapes and I am hoping that they did a wonderful job. I am going to predict the hexagon was the hardest one! SueBeth helped me design some assessment sheets and checklists that I will show how I am using to help drive my instruction.
