Mentor Text 8.11.13

We are linking up with Collaboration Cuties for their Mentor Text Linky.  This week the theme is Math.  The book we chose, When a Line Bends...A Shape Begins, is a book that was given to us by the Math Department in our county.  The kiddos enjoy!  When a Line Bends...A Shape Begins  is a fun rhyming book that reviews shapes; both a description of shapes and vivid examples of objects that are made with the shapes.  The pictures are very colorful and engaging.

This activity is a very simple one that could be used for a homework assignment; sparking creativity with shapes at home!
