Shapes and Estimation

Good morning PKP fans!

This past week we had tons of fun in our classroom! One of the week's highlights was the expiration of shapes, its different sizes, and estimation.

Using painters' tape we drew circles, triangles, squares, and rectangles on the carpet. We estimated how many students would be able to stand on the tape. The students proceeded to go to the different shapes until there was no more space.

We also compared shapes by its sizes, sides, and capacity. 

Our activity began like this:

"If you are a boy wearing shorts, please go to the largest square." 

Given these instructions, the children were engaged in the activity and were paying close attention to my descriptions to be able to "be a part" of  a shape.

Keep learning,
