Learning about 2D shapes

In our Prep space as you know we have 4 prep grades - (Kinder in The USA).
 
This week we decided to share our children in Mathematics.
 
There are 4 groups and I have the "'Crabs" - we are working on 2D shapes and what makes a 2 D shape.
 
We have been using Rainforest Maths - which is a website program designed by an Aussie and is absolutely brilliant for all Primary Grades - a resource worth exploring. If you subscribe to Matheletics it is part of that. But you can buy it as a stand alone program.
 
This group are exploring the sides, corners and size of sides and using their knowledge to use shapes to make pictures.
 
We are looking at different triangles, rectangles, squares and circles and what makes them these shapes. We are using them to make pictures as well.
 
We are gathering evidence for reporting and this assessment is ongoing for our planning.
 
Next week I have the turtles......
