3D Shapes {Freebie}

We've been busy this week learning all about 3D shapes and my kids are doing really well with remembering the names and attributes of each shape!
We started by listening and singing this song...my kids are OBSESSED with this Harry Kindegarten songs! They beg me to sing this everyday!
Then, we used some manipulatives to create an anchor chart about the shapes.
We sorted examples of real world 3D shapes.
You can get this page here as a freebie :)
We used our manipulatives again to determine which shapes will roll, slide, and stack.
You can get this page here for free also :)

I think the best part of our week was when we got to eat 3D shapes...this really helped the kids learn the names of the shapes!

I hope you are able to use the freebies and in case you need an extra activity for President's Day {or money}, I have updated my Flip That Penny graphing activity to include all the coins. You can get it here as a freebie on TpT.
We have an inservice day tomorrow, so I'm hoping to get lots done. Happy almost Friday!

  9. Reading Makes Your Child Smarter

    Reading is known to have numerous benefits. It increases your world knowledge, enhances your vocabulary, and works to improve your reading comprehension abilities.

    But did you know that reading can actually make you smarter?

    In fact, reading not only can make a child smarter, the very act of reading can even help to compensate for modest levels of cognitive ability in children by building their vocabulary and general knowledge! This is a finding reported by researchers Cunningham and Stanovich in a report titled "What Reading Does For the Mind".

    The simple fact here is that reading can make your child smarter, and that learning to read early on is directly linked to later success in life.

    1) Did you know that your child's vocabulary at 3 years old predicts his or her grade one reading success? [1]

    2) Did you know that vocabulary and reading ability in first grade strongly predicts grade 11 outcomes? [2]

    3) Did you know that your child's reading skill in grade 3 directly influences high school graduation? Studies have found that children who cannot read proficiently by grade 3 are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma than proficient readers! [3]

    But how do you teach a young child to read, and isn't that the job of the school and teachers?

    You can't be more wrong...

    With the right tools, knowledge, and techniques, teaching young children to read can be a simple and effective process. I'd like to introduce you to a fantastic reading program called Children Learning Reading, a super effective method for teaching children to read - even children as young as just 2 or 3 years old.

    The creators of this program have used it to teach their four children to read before age 3, and by reading, I mean real, phonetic reading.

    I can understand if you find that hard to believe... In fact, I had a difficult time believing it myself as well... that is, until I saw the videos they posted documenting the reading progress of the their children - not to mention all the videos other parents have sent in showcasing their children's reading progress after using the Children Learning Program. After learning more about their methods and techniques, it became clear how it's possible to teach young children to read effectively.

    It is truly within your ability to teach your child to read in a relatively short period of time spending just 10 to 15 minutes each day.
