We are starting our math unit on geometry. The students have learned about 3 shapes this week; circle, square and triangle. We have discussed characteristics of these shapes (vertices, sides, straight lines, orientation, 2-dimensional, etc).
Next week we are learning about rectangle, rhombus (I tell them that diamond is a baby word) and hexagon. Expectations at the end of these 5 weeks are students to be able to identify the six 2-D shapes and four 3-D shapes (cone, cylinder, cube, sphere). Along with explaining why shapes are different or similar based on their characteristics, using specific vocabulary. Lastly, children are expected to to understand that shapes can be composed of other shapes and orientation is the way a shape is pointing but it doesn't change the name of the shape.
WOW!!! Lots of learning is going to be happening in the next several weeks!
I am at Florida. I play volleyball. I got all of my stuff. I went inside. I was happy.
I am at the beach. I got on my sunscreen. We brought a wagon. We have snacks.
I am at water. Then I go in to the water. I saw a dolphin. The dolphin went in to water. I was happy.
This kiddo did an awesome story about his Spring Break! I am so impressed with the progress the children have made!
Keep up the great work at home!
I hope everyone had a nice spring break! I enjoyed traveling to Florida with my family and my 1 year old niece. The weather was wonderful!
I AM AMAZED OF THE WRITING THE KIDDOS ARE PRODUCING!!! Our hallway is filled with informational writing and I am one proud teacher!
New homework packets will be coming home this week.
