If you struggle to squeeze everything in before testing, this resource is for you!
The geometry word of the week will allow you to preteach essential geometry terms before your geometry unit.
This is designed to supplement, not replace, your geometry unit. Students will learn essential vocabulary slowly, throughout the year. This will allow your geometry instruction to focus on problem solving and application, rather than isolated memorization. You can use these activities as part of your math warm-up, centers, or any part of your math instruction!
Geometry Booklet. Introduce one word a week. Each day includes a quick task for students.
- Monday-write the definition and draw a picture of the word
- Tuesday-timed drawing-Give students two or three minutes to finish the drawing in that section. Students MUST incorporate the included graphic in their picture.
- Wednesday-Same but Different-students look at two images and describe how they are the same and how they are different.
- Thursday-Always/Sometimes/Never-Students should write a sometimes statement, then always statement, and then never statement. For example, a square always has 4 equal sides, or a square never has right angles.
- Friday-This day varies between a true or false question, would you rather question, or a which one doesn’t belong question. In the which one doesn’t belong question, there is no right or wrong answer. Instead, use this time to encourage conversation using the vocabulary words.
