This week , we worked on two dimensional shapes. Each year , I usually do an activity with food and sorting the food by shapes. I would use corn chips, cookies, Cheez Its, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, etc. This year with so many food allergies, I had to get creative. So , we made shape pizzas. We used construction paper to make our pizzas. Each student was given paper for the dough, sauce, and then 5 different colors for the shapes. Our curriculum only has them learn 5 shapes for Kindergarten. I do cover more, but this is what is required for them to know. The shapes are circle, triangle, square, rectangle, and hexagon. I gave each student their materials, modeled it for them, and then let the little chefs begin.
Some stayed at their seats to work, while others wanted to spread out and work on the floor.
They had a lot of fun making their creations. There were so many variations . Here are a few:
They had also had to write how many of each shape they made and what color they used for the shape at the bottom. I love them! Share with us what fun activities you do with shapes. I can't wait !
