Procedure for Day Two:
Read the book Mouse Shapes. The three mice in the book put shapes together to hide from the cat that is chasing them. Explain to the children that they will be doing an activity just like the mice in the book so they should pay close attention.
After reading, distribute a variety of shapes and colors to students and a piece of white construction paper. The task is for the students to create a picture similar to what the mice did in the book.
Each child should point to the shapes used in his or her picture and be able to name the shape.
