what and How animals Eat---And a free Geometry Unit!

Hello Everyone!
We had so much fun today learning about animal eating habits and dental tips!  After reading a couple of our new favorite books,and singing a new song on this topic, we created a quick anchor about what kind of animal teeth we would like to have. We began a written expression response to this same idea and tomorrow we will create our self portraits with animal teeth!  Can't wait!!














I fixed a couple of typos if you already have the unit.  Please redownload.

On another note, this next unit is for my sweet teacher friends who have geometry coming up in math!  We start next week learning about plane and solid figures. Our math book does not sufficiently cover this topic, so I decided to work hard to come up with some engaging activities that fit more precisely with our objectives.  The unit ended up being over 60 pages long with lots of fun activities, poems, math tub and extension ideas. There are a couple of craft connections and some edible projects as well.  Here are a couple of pics.

Some mini posters are included

There are 3 - way match games for both the plane figures and the solid figures.

 Unit also includes patterns for pattern blocks, some pattern block pictures, and opportunities for kids to create their own designs. Kids love and learn through using pattern blocks. 
I truly hope you can use some of this.  I know I can't wait to get started!! 

Til next time, thanks for taking time out of your busy day to take a peek at ours! We appreciate you!!
Joyfully!
Nancy
