2-Dimensional Shapes in Math

This week we learned about 2-dimensional shapes. We started the week by making this anchor chart from Kim Adsit's Shapes Galore unit. 

We learned about the attributes of circles. We circle painted with marshmallows. I got this idea from Deeanna at Golden Gang Kindergarten

We brought in objects from our homes that were in the shape of a circle. This idea also came from Golden Gang Kindergarten
We ate cookies for our circle snack.

We learned about the attributes of a triangle. We sorted shapes by triangles and not triangles.
We put shapes together to make different and larger shapes (see our anchor chart).
We ate Doritos for our triangle snack. 

We learned about the attributes of squares and rectangles. We sorted pictures of every day items into groups of squares and rectangles. You can download the sort from Google Docs here
We ate Saltine and Club crackers for our square and rectangle snack.

April, I LOVE all of your shape ideas! I bet your children had a really fun week- and will remember those shapes! Food seems to help them remember sometimes. :) When we worked on cone and cube and they remembered so well with ice cream cone and ice cube- I was wishing everyone said "spheres" of ice cream instead of scoops. :)

Love your shape ideas! I teach science to our little kindergartners, and I am going to be using your idea of writing a sentence for them to work around. Thanks!
