Continuing with shapes

We continued with shapes this week! Another shape we learned this week was the rhombus! Work on noticing rhombuses around the world. Many of the students refer to them as diamonds, but they're actually called rhombuses!! Students used rhombuses to create a variety of things and some even used rhombuses to create more rhombuses!!
Another shape activity we did this week was create shapes using sticks! Check out their creations below!!
We also went on a shape hunt in our classroom! Students used clipboards to walk around the room and find shapes around our room.
I also opened up a shape matching center! Students worked together to match shape cards!

This week we also learned about the tree map. A tree map is used to sort. We created tree maps to sort our likes and dislikes.
