Solid Shapes

Today my class worked on the terms three-dimensional and solid to describe solid shapes.  We made a chart describing the attributes of 3-D shapes.  My Kinders are so smart.  They were able to tell me how many faces on each 3-D shape and what the shape of each face was.  I even tried to trick them by adding on the pyramid at the last minute {I messed up my chart wanted my students to extend their learning.}, but they are too smart for me.  

We then completed a three-dimensional book where we had to identify the 3-D shape.  As we completed each page, we passed around 3-D shapes so that students could inspect them closer.

As a conclusion, we sang 3-D Shapes I Know.  My Kinders love this song!  We have been singing it for a few weeks and I think I will cry if my students are not able to identify their 3-D shapes the next time I test.  Ok, maybe I won't cry.  We will probably just keep practicing.

No Voice and Teaching Kindergarten

Have you ever had one of those days when you lost your voice, but you still had to teach?  That was today for me.  I always get a little nervous when this happens, but my Kinders were so good today.  They worked quietly in Literacy Stations so that my groups could hear me whisper.  I was so proud of them.  They were very sweet when they asked what happened and when they told me that they hoped I would feel better soon.  I love my job (even when I can't talk)!

Here I go!

I have been fascinated with this "blogging world" for over a year.  I have learned many things from teachers who have graciously shared a window into their classrooms.  Now I hope to add my 2 cents to this wonderful world. Thank you for joining me.
