We read The Greedy Triangle by Marilyn Burns to learn more about polygons. As I read the story, the children used Popsicle sticks to form each shape. Listening to this story together is a good review of the basic polygons. The theme of the story is being content with the gifts with which God has blessed each of us.
This is a video of volunteers from Atlanta working at the orphanages in Nicaragua. Our class will pray for the volunteers visiting this February and collect contributions to help them rebuild the children’s dilapidated dorm.
