First graders make sense of their math world and numbers by talking about it! This packet gives your kids ways to talk purposefully about shapes and the geometry standards for K-2. Get your students comfortable with identifying properties of shapes, recognizing shapes partitioned in halves or fourths, and using defining and non-defining attributes to tell whether or not a figure is a triangle, rectangle or square.
Visit my blog for ideas
on how I used this in my classroom.
Included in this packet
are slides with purposefully planned figures to get K-2 kids talking about shapes and their properties. There are 4 figures for each "talk" and 20 total talks (that's 80 figures to talk about altogether!). There are 4 planned talks for each of the following categories:
• What is a shape? (properties of shapes)
• Is it a triangle?
• Is it a rectangle?
• Is it a square?
• Which figure is divided in half/fourths? (2 talks for halves and 2 talks for fourths)
This product is available as an interactive powerpoint or pdf file. Plus, a main menu for easy navigation on each page! (Note: navigation links are only available in the PowerPoint file.)
