|Celeste Peel's class discussed and examined three dimensional objects that were shaped like cones, spheres, cubes and cylinder's. The kids drew pictures that represented those shapes and used interactive writing to label them.|
|Laura Sorum worked on the words "I" and "see" during this shared reading. It could later be used to teach the word, "the."|
The activity to the left can be done as an interactive writing project
or shared writing. Children take turns pulling a shape out of a bag and
naming it. After the colors have been written, the piece can be
used for shared reading and for reading around the room at center time.

Hillary Gnener and Jami Holton used interactive writing to label the shapes in their room. They can now use them as a shared reading.
