Theme Ideas

Six Sided Shapes

In a large box, place an assortment of six sided blocks. (Alphabet cubes, unit blocks and duplos are just a few of the possibilities). Close the box and then show it to your children. Count the six sides of the box. Shake the box. Can children guess what’s inside? More six sided shapes! Open the box and pass it around the circle, allowing each child to remove one item. Have the children examine their choice and count the six sides. Let them trade with a child sitting nearby, and count the six sides of their new block.

Sets of Six

In separate book bags (borrowed from the children if necessary) collect six each of several classroom items such as crayons, puppets, or wooden cubes. Tape the numeral six on each bag. At circle time, display the bags and reveal the contents. Help your children discover that there are six items in each bag. Have them think of other things in the room from which they could select a set of six items. Encourage them to collect and count the items.
