Our Little Leprechauns

We didn't catch the leprechaun this year but he did bring us some green clay to create our own little leprechauns.

I also love this St. Patrick's Day project from The Teacher Wife

Kandinsky Style Shapes

Learning about shapes in the style of Wassily Kandinsky. We used the Pixie App to create shapes and label them. I love how the shapes are the same but they are able to distort them a little to see the shapes in a new way.

Pic Collage Math

Easy Blog Photo
We went on a shape hunt around our school and took pictures of the shapes we see in our world. When we got back to our room we uploaded the pictures into Pic Collage and labeled them. I had them work in partners. This was one of the wonderful math ideas I got from Mrs. Wideen's Blog.

Some of my students are still struggling with ten more/ten less so we used the Number Pieces App and the Pic Collage App to help visualize it.
