First we reviewed 2D shapes and we recreated this great anchor chart. If you know the original source of this anchor chart, please share it with me so I can give credit to the creator! I love this chart! (This is not my version, I forgot to snap a picture of mine!)
The children made great connections between 2D and 3D shapes when they were on one anchor chart.
We also sang this song PLENTY of times!
We learned this poem (this chart is from Kindergarten Freckle Teacher) and sorted shapes from Mrs. Ricca’s Kindergarten. You can download her cards here.
I love this anchor chart too – this is on my list to do for next year! This chart is from Literacy and Laughter.
During play time, many children chose to play with our 3D shapes and sorting cards!
We had a lot of sculptures being created after reading this fun book!
Of course, we had to do the ‘ol marshmallow and toothpick 3D shape activity! The children had a blast with this – especially when they found out they could EAT the marshmallows when they were done!
One of our MOST favorite activities have been these AMAZING Geometric Shapes Building Set from Learning Resources.
They can be a little bit tricky to snap together (at least for me!), but the children really didn’t seem to have a problem connecting them all! Look at the creations they are making!
Since we have been focusing on 3D shapes the children have really enjoyed building 3D shapes, but many children are also using them to build 2D shapes. I am excited to be able to use them to introduce 2D shapes at the beginning of the year.
So Learning Resources would like to give away one of these awesome sets (valued at $39.99!!) to one lucky Growing Kinders reader!
