This week our Kindergarten students were busy at work. We had many discussions about different types of shapes and we examined their attributes. To further our exploration of shapes, we read texts such as The Patchwork Quilt by Valerie Flournoy. As an extension, Green K created shape collages and Blue K created a patchwork shape quilt! Later in the week, the children reviewed sorting. We sorted shapes by shape, color, and size. During Writing Workshop we took a walk outside the school and located shapes that we found in the structure of our building. The children sketched the school and shared their architectural drawings with each other. We found out that shapes are all around us!
