2D and 3D Shapes & A Freebie

Well March has really been a whirlwind. (Keep reading to the end of the post for a chance to win some freebies.) We have done so many fun things.  We studied the 2D and 3D shapes.  Building the 3D shapes with toothpicks and mini-marshmallows sounded like a great idea.  The marshmallows were a little bit too soft (fresh) and their creations wanted to collapse.  Lesson learned- next time use small balls of clay, play dough or maybe stale marshmallows. In the end they did learn about vertices, sides and edges while having fun and sneaking a marshmallow here and there.






I created two new learning games which my students really enjoyed.




THE FREEBIES-To win these 2 great games, like me on Facebook and just leave a comment about how you teach shapes and I will randomly choose 2 winners to get both games each ( an $8.00 value).
Remember to leave your email address.  This quick contest will end at midnight on Wednesday, March 27, 2013. I will announce the winners on Thursday morning. These 2 games will enhance your teaching of 2D and 3D shapes and build your Math Center activities.  Good Luck!

    That was so very kind of you! I am seeking knowledge and how to on creating a Math Daily 5 in my classroom. Having the right materials is key.
    To answer your question, Cara caroll has a fantastic shape monster unit that I used and the kids just gobbled it up!
