Lesson 1 (Math)
In the chapter of math, which we just finished, we have been learning about 2-D and 3-D shapes so I wanted to do a lesson that would reinforce what we have been learning about. To start out, I read the story The Greedy Triangle.
After reading the story I told the kids that I was going to give them about 10 minutes to create a snowflake using only the 5 die cut shapes provided. They could use a triangle, hexagon, square, rhombus (a fancy word for diamond), and a trapezoid to complete their snowflakes. (I found the idea on A Place Called Kindergarten). I told them they had to be as unique about aking their snowflakes as real snowflakes are and that they needed to fill up the whole 8 x 8 blue construction paper square. The kids did a great job at not only creating their snowflakes, but also being UNIQUE!
Here are a few more shapes ideas which could be used for a math lesson:
