Hey y’all! I am excited to start a new weekly post titled “Teacher Tuesday”. I will try my best to keep up with posting something that we are doing in the classroom each week!
This week my class is reading this book:
I love to turn the dramatic play center into a pizzeria on this week. The kiddos love it each year! Here is a look at what the pizzeria looks like.
I use this set by Melissa & Doug. It is amazing. Felt food is seriously the BEST in a classroom environment. You could also easily recreate this set using felt!
My student also created their own shape pizzas in my small group activity!
For this activity, you will need construction paper shapes, glue (preferably glue sticks) and a list of ingredients.
Here is my list:
I chose to focus on some of the basic shapes: circle (obviously), square, triangle, rectangle and rhombus. My students are very young and still working on identifying their shapes. This activity also allows the students to work on counting using one-to-one correspondence.
This is a great hands-on activity. My small groups consist of 5 to 6 students, depending on the day. I make sure to get through all small groups by the end of Thursday (we have 4 small groups total in my class).
Here are some of the outcomes.
I love how different they each turned out!
I hope you all enjoyed getting a glimpse into my classroom! I look forward to sharing more classroom activities throughout the year. Tune in tomorrow for What I Wore [to Work] Wednesday.
