Stick Your Nose in a Corner - Fun With Shapes!

We all remember that century old punishment....stick your nose in a corner, I just love to use it when we are working on sides and corners of shapes.  They totally get it if you tell them to stick their nose in a corner! :)

So like always we start with sides, and then we move to corners.  We talk about that the corner is the place where the two sides meet.  Now let's make it with our hands.  Side, side, and then ....... put your nose in the "corner."  Yeah  They just giggle.  :)

After we finished finding the corners in our classroom ......hahaha...... we did a fun little shape sorting paper, 2-D Flat Shapes Packet, created by Nicole Lanier from Lanier's Lions.  The kids had to sort the shapes based on the number of sides and corners.  Later during the day we enjoyed her fun little Tangram Scarecrow page.   Thanks Nicole
