With the visit of our Music Man, our day got a bit rushed by skill time. I had wanted to roll playdoh and make a square with the snakes, but we didn't have time. We all got our laminated squares and sang our song. We talked about the many different things that could be squares. The children thought of; books, pictures, windows, chair seats, tables, blocks. One little boy said heads, which we worked around--but I thought it was very funny.
After our discussion we traveled the room again looking for squares then headed to the tables to make our second page for our Shape Book. Today we made a quilt with four small squares that when put together made a big square too. I had a picture run off and the children glued the four square pieces on.
