Last Friday my kids didn't have school since conferences were Tue/Thur, so my daughter asked to come with me to work. I still had kids because my district started much later and our conferences are in October.
So we planned a couple fun things to do together with my students.
Our favorite was an idea I saw at Bluemoon Palette for practicing drawing shapes.
So the class before we practiced drawing shapes, counting sides and corners for all types of designs. I was pleasantly surprised how many names of shapes these 1st graders knew! We made everything squares, rectangles, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, trapezoid, rhombus, diamond, triangle, circles and ellipse. I drew them on the ELMO and they drew them on their papers, counting corners and sides as we go.
Some kids went 3D and made cubes and pyramids check out my photos.
