Taping off shapes
Old 04-06-2008, 05:23 AM
 

A second grade teacher in my school tapes off shapes all over the room. They start with meauring the perimeter. Then the next day she fills in the shapes with tissue paper, and they talk about area (they invite their 5th grade buddies to help with this). Then they have the visualize of the outline and the whole things colored in.
