Circus of Colors and Shapes

This week was our Circus of Colors and Shapes!  The students rotate through a series of centers and reinforce their knowledge of colors and shapes...We had one of our teachers dress up like a clown and take pictures.
Bean Bag Toss Center!  The students throw a bean bag and then tell what shape it landed on.
Tightrope Center!  The students pull a shape card and then walk on the tight rope!

I Spy Center!  The Students match the circus pictures to the correct plate
This is their sticker chart for each center.  Once they complete an area they put a sticker on their chart.  I bring in parents to help run my centers but if you don't want to do that you could do a couple of centers each day and make the unit a week long.
Face Painting Center!  I paint shapes on their face with washable paint and then take their picture.

Having fun on the tight rope!  Don't fall off....

We end our circus with popcorn and ice cream that make into clowns with m&ms!  Sedley says the circus of shapes and colors was super fun and she loved the snack the best!
