Shapes, Shapes, Shapes






Today I was fortunate enough to spend my day with 20 NEW teachers to 1st or 2nd grade. They are fabulous ladies with energy, enthusiasm and a strong desire to teach!!



We were able to share ideas and activities and highs and lows in the classroom together.



The activities listed below are the items I shared today.

Lory, Your stuff is awesome. Thanks so much for everything. I bought your book this week and it looks great. I have a terrible addiction to math games. I have way too many, but that doesn't seem like enough.

I never did hear back from you about the shape posters. Do you have an electronic version that you would be willing to send?

Your stuff is absolutely amazing! My first graders are going to absolutely LOVE your math stations - thank you for what you're doing for not only your kids but probably hundreds and hundreds of kids by sharing. I'm just a first year teacher so I'm gathering and learning now but I hope to have a blog like you someday where I can be so helpful to other teachers :) You're amazing inspiration!

Thanks so much for all these awesome resources! I am always looking for ways to make math fun! I would love to use your Silly Shapes game in my summer school class, but I am teaching Spanish speakers. Is there any way you could share an editable version of the file with me?
Thanks in advance!
