Outside Learning

It was finally nice enough to be outside without multiple layers on and without our hands freezing! This was the perfect opportunity to practice some shapes while getting to play outside.

I grabbed some rocks laying around and drew shapes on them with a sharpie (we did heart, circle, rectangle, and triangle.)

I drew the same shapes fairly large on the sidewalk with chalk. Brooklynn had to sort the  rocks by shape. She had a friend over while we did this, so they took turns and had to say which shape they picked up. This took me maybe 10 minutes to set up. It took me longer to find the rocks than it did to actually draw all the shapes.

Obviously you can add more shapes, which we will do once we collect more rocks(now I need to master drawing a hexagon).

Tip: Look for smooth rocks, they were much easier to draw on and the shape showed up better.
