3D Shapes That JK Knows

Learning about shapes is so much fun! If you walk by the JK classroom these days, you might hear the children singing “These are the 3D shapes, that I know.” The SMART Board is a fabulous learning tool for this unit as it allows the children a hands-on opportunity to sort various 2 and 3D shapes into their correct categories. During team building, the class was divided into small groups to build various shape structures using materials such as Duplo, blocks, magnetic tiles and straws with connectors. Even snack is a learning experience. The children recognize that even their water bottles and snack boxes are cylinders, cubes and rectangular prisms. Out of the mouths of our little ones – “Math sure is FUN!”
