I taught kindergarten for 16 years and was a district k-1 strategist for 2. I have a masters degree in curriculum and instruction from Dallas Baptist and a doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction from the University of North Texas. I am currently working for Dallas ISD as a prek instructional specialist.
Some of you have been asking for this recording sheet, so I thought I would post it. This idea came from Kim Jordano :)
I gave students a pre-cut bat shape. Then they used small squares to make the eyes. They clipped all four corners on each square and rounded to make a circle. I gave them a rectangle to make the mouth. They clipped the bottom two corners and rounded.
I gave students one object at a time to measure. They worked in small groups at their table to complete the project.
