Thanks so much to each of you who commented on my last post about needing help with ideas for 3D shapes. I am going to try to implement lots of them this week. I also found a poem and made it a little more kinder friendly. I'll probably add it to our Reading Binders and try to recite it the rest of the week.

On a somewhat unrelated note, several people mentioned using toilet paper tubes as a match for cylinders and I can't get a little scenario out of my head.
I can't remember who said this, but I was in a workshop and the presenter mentioned not asking for students to bring in toilet paper rolls anymore. She suggested asking for paper towel tubes and then cutting them to size. The reason: most people change the roll while still on the, ahem...'pot', before they've washed their hands. Then, you put them up to your eyes for binoculars and make cute crafts out of them and you know for a fact where a person's hands have been. EEEWWW! I've never looked at toilet paper tube activities the same again.
I know you wish I wouldn't have mentioned that, but now you'll have the same visual so now I can get it out of my head and put it into yours. Ha!
Are we still friends?
