Kindergartners in Linda Auciello’s class at Mariposa Elementary used their new knowledge of shapes to create some crazy shape monsters. They were given a brief discussion and example, but then they were required to cut the paper into the shapes by themselves and put the shapes together to form some sort of crazy monster! The students really came up with some fun ideas and every one of them was different because they had to use their own creativity and design! After they finished, students counted how many shapes they used all together to make their monster and how many different shapes they included. It was a fun and educational afternoon!
