Well... Halloween is long gone, but I wanted to share this math and literacy monsters!
In the month of October, we concentrate on shapes- both 2D and 3D - for our math curriculum.
We tie in literacy with then Big Green Monster book project. The big green monster looses and gains the shapes on his face in the book. We practiced summarizing after reading by making these not-so-scary green monsters!
Mrs. Jakusz found this wonderful resource - Shape Monsters to compliment the math curriculum and Halloween theme. In this project, the kids got to choose from a number of shapes to make a monster of their own.
After we made the monsters, we counted and graphed how many shapes we used. We also discussed sides, corners, and angles in this project. So fun!!
Alright, the next post will be more recent - sorry I have been slacking, grad school is taking over! :o)
