Last week was a bit of a whirlwind for us at school. The weather had quite a play in our week and I got a bit off track. It was triangle week for us and I had planned some triangle creations with cut out triangles, but Tuesday we only had 7 children because of the weather. Then I thought I would reintroduce the triangle the next day(Thursday) and do our triangle creations on Thursday. Did you catch that? I actually gave last week two Thursdays. As we were finishing up class on the real Thursday I thought, "Hey we're done for the week." I'll have to get the triangles out another day.
We did get the two pages of our book done though. We cut the triangle out the first day, I'm so proud at how well they are doing with their cutting. There are only a couple that don't quite have the hold yet.
The next day was our picture day. I used triangles to make a kite. I know it's a bit early, no one flies kites in the snow, but they enjoy it. (I also like to show them how when you put the two triangles together you can make a square or a diamond.)
We also scoured the room for triangles--no too many there. We travel on next week to the world of rectangles. I'm sure we'll be able to find plenty of rectangles in the room. I may have to start pretty early.
