After reading The Greedy Triangle and discussing characteristics of 2D (plane) shapes, the students graphed ordered pairs to draw various shapes.
After graphing the shapes, each one was colored a certain color according to its name.
Then, we sorted quadrilaterals and labeled. Students created their own categories to sort when finished.
After learning about 3D (solid) shapes, students identified them with food. Each student was given a bag with various items and sorted them as cylinders, cones, rectangular prisms, spheres, and cubes. The activity was created by Johanna Tackitt and can be found here.
Once sorted and counted, a graph was made. Also, 2 questions were created that could be answered using their graph.
These are the anchor charts for the week.
After all their hard work, students were treated to a Mardi Gras parade put on by Kindergarten.
In addition, we had a Mardi Gras/Valentine's celebration. Students brought in treats for their classmates.
Ms. Gros brought cupcakes that she made. There is not much that she can't do :)
They look and taste AWESOME!!
Finally, at the end of the day our school held our end of the quarter PBIS award. Students that did not receive more than a phone call home attended a magic show. They were amazed and thrilled at the performance!
HAPPY MARDI GRAS!
