I'm linking up with Manic Monday on Classroom Freebies! Thanks for stopping by!
First, this weather we had this weekend was just completely strange! Saturday was BEAUTIFUL! Great day for my little one's first baseball game of the year. Then, we weeded and mulched half of our house... Stormed... rained all day Sunday. Rained all night.... Monday---still raining! Thank goodness it wasn't raining at recess time! BUT! Now, instead of shorts and t-shirts like Saturday---I really think I need my winter coat back out! I think I even saw that there were snow flurries possible this week! C.R.A.Z.Y.!
Anyway-along with my giveaway this weekend-there were so many other good ones too that I entered! I'm so excited to have won a year for the Samson's Classroom website! I already set it up for my students to start using ASAP! I won it from the lovely Lori over at Teaching With Love and Laughter. Winners of our big giveaway will be announced once Trisha at First Grade Frosting has time to pick names!
This week in Math we are going to explore 2D and 3D shapes. I created a cute little booklet for the kids to complete while they learn about the attributes that make each shape the shape it is (as well as discussing what attributes do NOT make a shape---color, size, etc..) I also made sure to include the shapes listed in the Common Core Standards (half circle and quarter circle) and added 2 extra 3D shapes (sphere and pyramid) that weren't listed in the Common Core Standards, but felt the kids could know those too (if they don't already)! The booklet only has them listing what the shape has and space to draw pictures of the shape. They can draw the actual shape, or draw something that is that shape... or even bust out those magazines and have students cut and paste the shapes! (OR-even add more technology and have the kids go on a shape hunt and they can print and glue their shapes they took pictures of!) Click on the picture to grab your copy. (when you print it out----in order for it to copy correctly double sided, turn every other page upside down-and make sure to keep it in order so that the 2D and 3D shapes stay together in the booklet.)
(I changed the cover of the book to have a different title since taking this pic. I'll upload a new one once I get a chance to upload more pics!)
(Inside pages-this is actually 2 pages because you'll fold in the middle to make your booklet.)
What I am looking for when we complete the book for the "has" part-is where we'll list the number of corners, sides, points, flat sides, whether it rolls or slides, etc...
If you read this far, thank you and you might be in luck! I have also been working on my last set of math games for the year (literacy will come after I complete this). Of course it has a "Beach" theme! I'm trying to tie in all of the important skills from the year that they need to know before moving on---and of course it is Common Core Aligned like all of my Math games. Because of all the generosity and kindness out there in the blogging world, I am going to offer someone a free set once it is finished! All you need to do is make sure you follow my blog and leave a comment about what you are looking forward to doing this summer. (Don't forget to add your email address---or make sure to keep an eye open for when I'm finished and announce who will be the lucky one to contact me.) :) The contest will end when I finish the unit. (I'm 1/2-3/4 complete) I'll pick someone at random once I am complete! (check out my facebook page and a second opportunity to win a set!) Here's a preview of the cover!
