Here are a set of lesson plans for teaching your kinders to descride, construct and draw the six basic shapes. Activities are all common core and are aligned to the standards for kindergarten!
1. Detailed, step by step lesson plans for drawing and constructing shapes. Gives great practice in describing shapes. K.G.1 K.G.2 K.G.5 You can teach a lesson on constructing a shape, then teach your learners to draw it using the lesson plan and guided practice pages all in one day, or do each part of the lesson separately, depending on your time allowance. You will need yarn and drinking straws (or other "sticks" that can be cut in half.
2. "I Can Draw Shapes" a 12 page workbook (or collection of practice sheets) for drawing flat shapes. Includes describing shapes inthe environment K.G.2 K.G.5 The pages from this book go with the lesson plans above for drawing. Students have opportunity to draw the shape with scaffolded guidance. The "Bonus" is to draw something that is that shape and to describe it.
3. "Shapes in My World" student response. After completeing these lesson, follow-up with completing this book. Students will draw an object in their enviroment for each of the four basic shapes and describe it.
All of these materials (and much more) are included in my Kindergarten Common Core Geometry Mega Pack which is a steal at $6.99. But don't purchase both as there is overlap!
Great news in my store! I have materials available to help you meet ALL of the Kindergarten Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics!! Tons of ELA stuff, too! Check it out!
