Money is now a thing of the past and geometry is where it's at in room 102!
We have been identifying 2D shapes and their characteristics, while also getting familiar with these shapes by PLAYING! I mean... "composing" new shapes with pattern blocks and geoboards!
I love geometry because it is all hands-on and the kids have a lot of fun learning about shapes! It also lets me see which of kids need more practice with spatial reasoning.
I created these little center cards that we used today and I thought I would offer them up as a freebie:
There are 18 cards that you can download HERE:
I also had my students working on the geoboards today with these fun shape cards:
The sweet Jennifer from First Grade Blue Skies
made these and you can get them HERE
We will be working on these centers the whole week! I need to enjoy the fun of playing with shapes, because our next math unit is place value.... EEEK!
