Body Shapes

This week in math we have been focusing on the different attributes of shapes - the size, colors, thickness, and names of each shapes. They love watching how the shapes can rotate, grow, and/or change on our Smart Board. We also sorted shapes by different attributes as a group. 
Then, we decided to take over our classroom to see if we move the tables around in our rooms so we could work as teams to create shapes with our bodies! The students did a wonderful job and really showed they understood the basic qualities of each shape. Only the leader could talk to guide the students to they had to use first time listening ears and work as a team to create the shape. Then they had to hold that shape until they were checked off! 

Look at how we did!
