This is a quick post...because I wanted you all to know that, yes,
I am still alive and teachin' in good ol' Kansas!
We are wrapping up our math unit on shapes and thought
I would share some pictures of an activity we did last week.
I saw this activity in a resource book I had, only it used
I thought it was cute, but I'm too cheap to buy enough
gumdrops for all 23 of my kiddos.
Marshmallows are much more economical. :)
Besides, that's what Clark Griswold would do and I often
ask myself, "What would Clark do?" to keep myself in check.
Ok, totally kidding.
Don't know where the heck this is coming from tonight...
but Christmas Vacation is one of my favorite movies EVER!
I'll just share the pics now. :)
First we traced solid figures and related the flat surfaces
to plane shapes.
Then I set them loose to create solid figures...
They loved this activity and I bet your students would, too!
Gotta get back to the real business of the week...a Lorax themed
birthday party for my baby girl who will be 3 on Saturday!
Tonight I'm working on making truffala trees...wish me luck. ;)
