Reflection: Lesson Planning Super Shape Ornament Review - Section 1: Attention Grabber/Introduction


It’s December, and that means, report card season!  Forget about the holidays, (well, put them on the back burner, at least part time)—in my district, this means that every kindergarten teacher is having some quality 1 on 1 time with every kiddo in his or her class to go over all kinds of Common Core standards!  It’s fun and exciting, but it requires a bit of a change for me.

We haven’t spent too much time going over 2D shapes aside from a shape unit way back in August and brief references each day during calendar. I figure for some of my turkeys, a little review lesson could be a good thing.

Now, I have this kind of new love in my life, but it’s a great love:  Pinterest!  It makes me happy, it gives me ideas, it provides inspiration, and it’s a really good distraction when the 3 guys in my house have golf on TV!  Well, recently I was checking out my beloved Pinterest, and I came across the cutest symmetry shape ornaments by Mrs. Lee.  You can see the link here.  

I loved her idea, and I thought to myself, “Hmm… how about using the die cut down the hall, make the trickiest shapes (like hexagon and rhombus), and then make a counting/number sense recording side for the back?!  So that’s what I did.  But I owe a huge “Thank you, Mrs. Lee!” wherever you are, because you inspired this activity.
