There are absolutely no more exciting words that you will ever hear coming from a child! This week when we were heading out into the woods we were gifted our first coat of fresh white snow. The beautiful sight caused a little snafu in our original woods day plan but provided us with an opportunity to do a quick review of our shapes!
While we were waiting for our first grade friends from the other classrooms we each took turns drawing and naming different shapes. I found a small shape drawing stick and asked the first student to draw a circle, “easy!” he said. Then I asked him to name another shape and ask his next friend to draw it. Each student had to draw one shape and name one not drawn yet. This was a quick opportunity for me to informally assess their shape knowledge!
