Creative Shapes

Creative shapes

This Friday, we reviewed the shapes we know, triangle, square, circle, and oval. We categorized these shapes into two groups: shapes with points or corners & round shapes without points or corners.
We also made a connection with our environment. Kathryn played "I Spy" with the children to find shapes we have in our classroom. The children were very creative; they said their cheeks are like two circles. As well, we can make oval shapes with our mouths!

Children also watched a clip of "Mouse Shapes" story. We all enjoyed the creative pictures the three mice make in the story. Here is the link that tells the story:

Then, children used their creativity like the three mice do in the story to make a picture with shapes. They glued various shapes to make colourful pictures.

We glue  triangle, square, circle, and oval!

I made a house with a triangle and a square!

Verdi: Catapults

Verdi, a young python, does not want to change.  The last thing he wants his to turn from his beautiful yellow to boring green. Verdi tries to change his colour back to yellow by scrubbing his skin and then covering it with mud. Nothing works.  He notices that the sky is bright yellow just like he used to be. Verdi launches himself from the treetops certain that his flight will change him back to yellow.

How did Verdi fly through the air? What a great opportunity to learn about catapults. Elastics and popsicle sticks were the only materials need to build a catapult.  First the children, used plastic snakes to sail through the area.  It was delightful to hear the excitement and the laughter as the children made  their "Verdi" fly.

I asked the children which would travel farther; a plastic snake or a pompom.  Most of the children though the heavier item, the snake, would travel a further distance.  The children were amazed at how far and how high a pompom could move.
