What a Square

We started our shape book last week with the square. For our shape books, the first page of the week is the children cutting the shape out and putting it on the page with the song to help them remember the name of the shape.

The second page is usually taking the shape of the week to design an object. For example out square page is using four squares to create a quilt for the teddy bear.

I also try to have something out so that they can just play with and have the squares all around them. This year I am going to make a shape wall collage. Each week I will have the shape out and a large piece of paper so that the children can add the shapes and when finished they can hang it on the wall. I have to say after they finished their square collage they were quite please with themselves. They thought it was a beautiful picture.
