“Camioncito Azul” is a great story and we can review couple of Math concepts like colors; Camioncito Azul/blue truck, rana verde/green frog, árbol rojo/red tree, camión de carga amarillo/yellow dump truck, ruedas negras/black tires, vaca marrón o café/brown cow, oveja blanca/white sheep and cerdito rosa/pink pig. Also is good for counting how many animals were in the story like Sr.Axel did during the read aloud.
Now let’s talk about two dimensional shapes. In geometry, a two-dimensional shape can be defined as a flat plane figure or a shape that has two dimensions – length and width.
Two-dimensional or 2-D shapes do not have any thickness and can be measured in only two faces. A circle (círculo), triangle (triángulo), square (cuadrado), rectangle (rectángulo) are examples of two–dimensional shapes.
Please choose any of these activities to support your child’s learning on 2-D shapes during this week.
