What Are We Working On?

So if you are using Open Court Reading you will be able to relate to this post on Shadows. This is a topic that is hard to do with five year olds. Here are a few simple maps we made with the kids that were right at their level. The one on Bear Shadow is to help them understand different settings. A parent came in to do the silhouettes you see. The kids loved guessing who each student was and we filled our room and office with these. What a beautiful way to decorate.

I love your blog! Could you tell me a little more about how you (a parent) made the silhouettes? I am looking forward to do this in the up coming months. :)

She used an overhead projector and had them sit next to a wall which projected their shadow. Then she traced the image on black paper. They are so precious!
