We read the book Squares Are Not Bad. It's a book about shapes but also about treating others well and acceptance.  It goes with our character trait for the month and our discussions of Dr.  M L King.  One of the kids even said the shapes in the story were "boasting"--our word of the week.  Perfect!  Each child used shapes to make a picture then counted how manyof each shape used.
