We used gummy worms to measure length. First by themselves then we stretched them. Then of course they ate them :)

During our geometry unit we did a TON of activities. I only got a few pictures. First we got a bug piece of paper and a notecard. The kids traced the notecard several times to make new shapes, then they colored them all a different color. The other pictures are of our sticker sticks. We used these to talk about vertices and sides of the shape. The stickers came off after a couple of days use, but it was good for them to see how the sides connected!
Earlier I googled books to teach main idea and ran across this book of fables. It is a great book because most of the time we don't use those in the classroom. My kids loved the book and could easily pick out the main ideas and details. We used a big post it note to write the main idea and the small post it notes for the details. My firsties love post it notes!
I'm so sorry I have been missing! This masters stuff is taking all of my time! We did dress up for book character day! I had one of the kiddos take my picture with my teacher friend Randi. She was viola swamp and I was fancy nancy! A couple days later one of my sweet little ones drew a picture of me as fancy nancy. It is by far one of my favorite drawings that a kiddo has done!
