This week, our focus in Maths was on shape. One of the Victorian newspapers is currently running a special promotion on the Mr Men series of books by Roger Hargreaves. We decided to capture this excitement and look at Mr Men characters and shapes.
We started off watching a Mr Happy video on youtube that had the children in stitches!
Then we made different Mr Men characters. We started with Mr Happy, moved onto Mr Grumpy and Mr Rush. A great way to get children using scissors, copying, writing numbers, following instructions and most of all, instilling in the children that Maths is everywhere! (I also bet most of the class now has a Mr Men book at home too!)
We finished the week with this adorable Valentine's Freebie thanks to Mel at From the Pond. We used paint for the first time this year and it was a great success! I really do love watercolour paints!
