My students always enjoy learning about shapes and we usually spend about 1½-2 weeks exploring 2D shapes, 3D shapes, and positional words (for some reason these concepts are taught together!). In this unit of study you will find useful and engaging lessons, activities, and worksheets that will help your students with these concepts. Included in this unit:
-Unit Plan & Lesson Plans: The 8-day unit plan includes a detailed description of what will be taught each day. Within each lesson there is a materials list, an objective, and step-by-step lesson instructions. The 8-day unit plan has also been broken down into daily lesson plans. These come in both color and printable (ink friendly) versions.
-Read Alouds: I’m a big believer in using quality read alouds to engage my students’ interest, and so within each lesson there is a great book (fiction or nonfiction) that will help my students’ understanding of the concepts being taught. There is also a list of these read alouds to help when you are getting books from the library (or Amazon).
-Guided Practice: Each days students will learn more about the concepts being taught by playing a game, creating a booklet, or making a craft. These activities are hands-on and fun but also purposeful!
-Independent Practice: Each day there are follow-up worksheets that allow you to extend the learning beyond the guided practice. There are answer keys included for each worksheet.
