Shape Science Fun With Boca Beth:
To bring shapes and science together cut out several of your desired shapes from cardboard or heavy paper (for instance 3 circles, 3 ovals, 3 hearts). On each one add different textures to them. Put sand on one circle, cotton on another and aluminum foil on the next. The children learn about the shapes while feeling different textures. Refer to the shapes in English & Spanish.

Boca Beth brings you Shape Snack Time:
Make a Shape House for Snack! Here is what's needed:
• A piece of bread for the square house
• A half piece of sliced sandwich cheese cut into a triangle shape for the
roof
• A rectangle piece of lunchmeat for the door (ham, bologna, ...)
• Circle shaped pickles for the windows

This is fun to make and good to eat! We play our shapes songs from the "More Boca Beth" music CD while fixing our yummy shape snacks!
