I had so much fun developing this unit and it filled a need in my class for shape curriculum. This unit includes everything you will need for 1 week of math instruction, what time saver! This unit is awesome on it's own and can be a great supplement for many other math programs. This unit is part of my year long first grade math bundle. You can check it out here.
•These lessons are designed to introduce first graders to 2-d shapes, defining and nondefining attributes and composing something new with shapes. Students will work with different 2-d shapes in a variety of ways. They will discover attributes of each shape and sort attributes based on defining and nondefining characteristics. Students will draw shapes and solve word problems with shapes. Students will also create a picture and a monkey craft using different shapes.
