Geometry Flip Cards for Kindergarten are a combination of concept cards and task cards that cover all common core standards for the Geometry domain for Kindergarten.
Geometry Flip Cards contain 48 different cards for Grade K based on the Common Core State Standards for the Geometry domain.
Geometry Flip Cards help with understanding of the names of shapes with images (squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, hexagons, cubes, cones, cylinders, and spheres). Students are introduced to the meanings of terms for relative positions (above, below, beside, in front of, behind, next to, inside/outside, left/middle/right, and top/middle/bottom). Students are shown and then asked to identify the difference between two- and three-dimensional figures. Students are asked to identify the number of vertices and sides for various given figures. Students are asked to identify similarities and differences between sets of two different figures. Finally, students are asked what joining a number of smaller figures will create in terms of a larger figure. A blank set of cards is included for the teacher to add any other concepts or tasks.
Math flip cards are a cross between task cards and concept cards that can be part of an interactive notebook. Some cards explain concepts, and other cards ask students to complete a certain task in order to understand a concept. These flip cards are designed to be copied, laminated, and taped in a stack as shown on either a heavy piece of cardstock or on different sides of a file folder. Lamination is needed so that students can practice the skills of each objective, erase, and then practice again at a later time. Two stacks can be made on each side for a total of up to eight different stacks with one file folder. The titles at the bottom of each card should show as they are taped down, one on top of the other. Answers can also be written on the back of cards for students to check.
Flip cards can be used for class instruction, in learning centers, for independent review, or in a game setting. Answers and/or additional problems can be written on the reverse side of the card if the teacher chooses to do so. The cards can be printed in color or grayscale. For long term use, you will want to laminate the cards first so that students can write and erase on each card using a dry-erase marker.
The following Common Core standards are covered:
Identify and describe shapes.
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, compare, create, and compose shapes.
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?"
