Belle really knows her shapes. She is an old pro with them so I decided to have some fun with our shapes by making a dinosaur from some of our favorites. I had precut a circle, oval, 4 rectangles, 4 squares, a green triangle, and 4 yellow triangles. I completely forgot to take pictures of Belle making this dino, but it is really simple.
We then moved on to his legs and feet. I asked Belle where her legs were and how many she had. She showed me her legs, and then told me she had three. Hmm…I corrected her and we counted her legs, yup only 2 there. We counted our dino’s legs and she decided that they were rectangles and showed me where the dino’s legs go. We did the same for the dino’s feet, he has 4 square feet.
Belle did great with the gluing and knowing where all the body parts go. I had to help her with his legs as she wanted to put them on his back. I would normally be fine with it, but we still had spikes to go up there. We talked about where her legs were and we decided they were below her belly. She showed me the dino’s belly and decided his legs went below it.
We then moved on to the dino’s tail. I decided to cut a triangle for his tail to keep it all shapes. After Belle glued on his tail we counted out his triangle spikes as she glued them on.
