First off, my heart and prayers go out to anyone affected by the recent storms in SW Missouri, Illinois and some of the southern states. May God bless you like he blessed us almost a year ago!
It's been a busy week. Our Math focus this week was on 3D shapes. As I explained it to my kiddos...3D means coming at you, hence the title of this post. Here are some of our activities.
Click here to pick up this freebie 3D shape poem by Marlana at Lil'Country Kindergarten! Poetry is a great way to introduce a topic..short, sweet and a CCSS!
Kindergarten Kindergarten. You can grab my copy of the chart here. We are lucky to have a poster marker so I blew it up!
We also read the story Shapes That Roll and worked cooperatively to see if our 3D shapes could roll, slide or be stacked. My response sheet is yours if you want it!
This is one of my little friends.
He got so excited when he figured out that cylinders could be stacked and got so animated in his explanation that I just started clicking away! :)
Our last day was a 3D mystery bag activity. I got this idea from A Place Called Kindergarten. Click on the name to read all about it! It was one of those activities that you read about and just have to do the next year! Here we are in action...

You have a what? Where? based on There's a Wocket in My Pocket! This was one of my "one activity that morphs in your head while you're reading the book" activities. Does this happen to anyone else? Thank goodness our Early Lit teacher, Mrs. Dobbs, stuck with me!!
