Whew! We have been working on our Shapes Unit for over a month now! We’re not used to spending so much time on this math topic. We have been looking for ways to strengthen some of our lessons and came along this great book! Perfect Square by Michael Hall tells the story of a square who gets ripped, shattered, torn and more to be created into a piece of art. The story led to a great activity where our kiddos had to take a square of construction paper, destruct it, and create a new picture using all the parts of their original square. Here are some samples from our kiddos:
Do you have any great books about Shapes that lends itself to a shape related activity? We would love to build our collection for this unit!
