My friends, after an entire 12 months of blogging, I have FINALLY figured out that I too can put video directly on my WordPress blog. To celebrate, I have some You-tube videos for you that Noah (6 with Down syndrome) and I watched last week. Just click on the arrow in the center of each screen shot. Short descriptions of each video are below the screen shot. If you’d like to view the video in full screen, click on the rectanglular box in the bottom right corner of the screen shot. Enjoy!
More shapes to a Beatle-ish tune with pictures made out of shapes.
A mellow, dreamy song with simple cartoon shapes that morph. The video and lyrics highlight the number and placement of sides each shape has.
A run-down of the 2-D shapes to a rap/soul beat. This video also points out things in our environment that are examples of shapes. The number of sides of each shape are highlighted and counted.
A Sesame Street-ish video and song pointing out shapes in our environment. Nicely done with shapes being outlined in highlighting.
You can find all these videos and more ideas for working with shapes on my Shaping Up Pinterest Board: http://pinterest.com/mamajoyx9/shaping-up-preschool/.
