Thinking Maps Thursday

We continue to learn about shapes this week. You can see some of the maps we made below!

Comparing Shapes
{Double Bubble}
The middle is how the shapes are alike. The bubbles on the outside are how they are different.
Describing a Shape {Bubble Maps}

The students worked in small groups describing the different shape in their bubble. A Bubble Map can be tricky for Kindergarten because using JUST describing words is difficult. They did not have to fill up every circle, and they could add circles too.

Four sides, red, long, pointy
2 D shape, red, four sides
 pointy, diamond, is blue
Six sides, pointy, make shapes 
pointy, four sides

Fill The Hexagon

This week we have learned the game Fill the Hexagon. This Brace Map below was a perfect follow-up lesson to this game. This game comes from TERC Investigations. The kids roll a dice and put that shape on the board. Each child has their board. The goal is to fill up the hexagons first.
