This book would be great to use as an interactive read aloud because you will be able to help students identify and practice using shapes such as square, circle, rectangle, and triangle. I also allows students to identify colors and discuss different types of farm animals, along with the sounds they make or features they have. It also allows teachers to use interactive activities with shapes to see what the students can come up with. This book would be used in elementary grades such as K-1 because this is when they begin learning colors, shapes, and animals. The standards also state that children in these grade levels needs to be able to identify and describe the relationship between illustrations, which will be completed when they recognize that all of the animals are related because they are farm animals. This book for students to realize the importance of creativity as the theme and express their creativity by using their imagination to see what they can come up with. ( )

This is a good book to use for a very young child that may be in preschool or to have in your library in a Kindergarten classroom. This book does not have a plot to follow and cannot be used for teaching many literary lessons. This book is good for teaching children about different shapes. It is fun to see what the book is going to change into next depending on what shapes you add and what you take away. You can have students look and tell you what shapes they see making up different parts of the animals to help them learn or practice their shapes. You can also have them tell you the different colors of the shapes and then tell you what color that part of the animal would be if it were real. This is also good to teach young children about different animals and about what those animals may say. You can talk to your students about perception and how if you look at it a different way, you may see it a little differently or how they may see it differently than their neighbor. For an activity, you can have students find 10 different shapes in the room that different objects are made out of so they can see how everything is made out of different shapes.

A great book for shapes and vocabulary words, learning animals as well as shapes and colors

Very interesting book. Lots of colors and cool animal shapes, each made with several shapes. When the page is turned you only see one shape with the word . Each page has a single word telling which animal or shape(s). Good book.
