My teacher set the colored tape, black construction paper, scissors, and chalk on the table.

All I needed was a little time and the chance to do something all by myself.

I concentrated on my work.

The tape was sticky and I had to use my hands and my mind to figure out how to keep the tape from sticking together.

I made lines on my paper.

My lines began to form shapes

I had plenty of time to create more lines and more shapes.

My cutting skills were improving as I worked to cut the tape but I didn’t notice.

Some of my friends created their own shapes too! What shapes do you see?

This was fun and my confidence grew as I made my own decisions...

I am glad my teacher gave us time to create!
