Shape Recognition and Money Introduction
Students were introduced to the concept of money, learning what each coin and different dollar amounts meant. Students learned to add different sums of money and coins. Projects included adding money into their very own piggy banks as well as purchasing items in the classroom with 'fake' money.
Shape recognition included making our very own pizza using shapes! The pizza had shapes such as pentagons, hexagons, circles, rectangles, and triangles, all of which students should be able to draw and differentiate. Shape recognition will continue into next week, expanding with octagons, and later, decagons!
