Our “Shape of the Month” for September was a Circle!
We did a variety of fun activities throughout the month to practice and play with circles.
Weaving strings and pipe cleaners through wiffle balls kept us busy for a long time and was a fun way to play with circles.
One week in this unit was spent talking about different feelings. On one of the days, we talked about being scared, so we used baby food jars and googley eyes to make a ten eyed monster with playdoh (10 was also one of our numbers this month).
We used paper towel tubes, milk jug lids, and small cups, just to make a simple circle collage when we were finished with the other planned activities for the day.
One of the planned lessons was a circle collage given this famous piece of art as a reference. for our Littles class, we cut out paper circles of different sizes and practiced our gluing skills. Then we used small cups, spools, and lids to add to our design.
Our preschool and Pre-K classes were able to take the paper plates and cups and trace around them before they stamped over the top with paint.
