We will write our own "Tale of a Big Chicken" this week--using this fun idiom.

Students will identify and classify 3D shapes by their attributes.

Please bring in a small (non-valuable) trinket on Monday. It should be no bigger than their hand and fit into a small Ziplock bag. Ideas are things like an old key, a rock, a bottle cap, or an old piece of jewelry.
