This week our theme is shapes. I thought it would be nice to do a story and art activity to go with this theme. I went to the library and picked out some shape books for Little Sweets. One of the books we read is called Do you see shapes? Each page shows a different shape. Your child is suppose to clap for each shape on the page. Little Sweets did some clapping, but wanted to count with me instead. After we read the book I got some contact paper out and had Little Sweets place some precut shapes onto the contact paper. She really enjoyed this. I had to help her a few times when her hand got stuck to the paper. After she was finished putting her shapes on the contact paper I put white computer paper ontop of her creation. I thought it turned out cute. We also use her artwork as a teaching tool. She points to the different shapes as I say them. I also will have her count the shapes on her picture too.
