We Are in Great Shape

Our TTh class is having fun with shapes. We learned that shapes are EVERYWHERE!

We made a craft with squares which required a lot of listening and following directions. Our circle craft was more open ended. The children could glue the circles anywhere. We started with one large circle and the circles became smaller and smaller.

We are singing a shape song and playing a shape game. Each child is given two shapes on a card (we work on square, circle, triangle, oval, rectangle and diamond). We sing the song and when they hear their shape, they stand up.

The Shape Song (Where is Thumbkin?)-

Where's a ________?

Where's a ________?

Show me now.

Show me now.

If you have a _______,

If you have a _______,

Sit back down.

Sit back down.

Want to do more? We talked about shapes are everywhere. You can point out shapes in your environment to your child. In the car, on the road, in the store and in your home-shapes are everywhere.
