During math time today we practiced counting, recognizing numbers and creating shapes on geo boards. The class first used the number pans with their table group. They took turns picking a number and moving it into the middle. Then, they would have their partner name the number they picked. After a quick mini-lesson on shapes, the class went out with their parnters again and made shapes using a rubberband and the geo board. They made triangles, squares and rectangles as well as creating a new shape and using their imaginiation to come up with what the shape looked like. There were several trucks (without wheels), houses, stop signs and even a batman!
