Later we documented all that we knew about shapes like circles, squares, triangles and rectangles.  

This week we continued our studies in centres, using various tools to create different shapes.  Here is what our learning looked like.

Children later had more time to use and explore these learning tools in our classroom.  Some also played various games involving shapes.
