Love this collage idea. Students pick a cup with pieces of paint samples cut into different shapes. The cup holds all one color- different hues. Students glue all of their pieces on a small white square, which is then added to all the others in a "quilt". by beverley

Simple Shape Book: We are working on basic shapes.  My kids love two things: glue sticks and reading books.  So, I combined their two loves by creating them a Simple Shape Book!  They get to glue shapes into the book and then read it over and over again.  Fun! Considering my kids have a pretty short attention span, I created the book with only three shapes.  A circle, square and triangle. Can teach Colors and Shapes at the same time. by alberta

So first, students draw some random shapes on a sheet of paper- I encourage them to be geometric, as it's just easier in the end.  Encourage a variety of shapes and sizes. by natalie-w

They are a PERFECT mini-whiteboard for students that can easily fit in their desk or cubbies! I like the idea of storing the glove/sock/eraser in the case, and that it is so portable. Students can also use the case to store math facts that they might be working on or other task cards! by nichole

Sponge Crabs (Dromidiopsis dormia) are all about fashion. They cut off pieces of sponge and trim them down to the perfect shape & fit using their claws, then they place the chic accessory square on top of their head. The sponge, besides making the crab look dazzling, serves as a permanent shelter and as protection for the crab. by diane.smith

After reading a wintry book, allow your students to make snow paint. Snow paint is inexpensive, easy to make, and tons of fun. To make snow paint simply mix equal amounts of white glue and shaving cream together. Cut out various winter shapes such as snowmen and snowflakes from cardstock. Allow your little ones to spread their snow all over their shapes. When the snow paint dries, it will become puffy. Your students will have a blast with this by nannie
