This is a MS Word file (fully editable) that I used to do a quick check-in with my kindergarten students on how well they are doing identifying shapes both 2D & 3D. It's a verbal assessment where I ask questions like "Point to all the triangles" or "What shape is to the left of the small triangle?"
How can I use this product?
You can use this resource for a quick way to check understanding.
What is included?
1 MS Word file with 5 pages
* 2 pages of cover/copyright info/and teacher notes
* 1 page of basic 2D shape questions
* 1 page with a grid of shapes to use for the 2D shape questions
* 1 page with 3D shape questions. You will need to provide a collection of 2D and 3D shapes for your students to sort. The file is completely editable if you choose to remove that question.

What standards are addressed?
Common Core Standards:
Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to.
Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, "flat") or three-dimensional ("solid").
Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/"corners") and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length).
Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.
Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. For example, "Can you join these two triangles with full sides touching to make a rectangle?"
