****9-9-14 UPDATE: Thank you so much for all the wonderful feedback!! I have changed the circle page to read 'A circle as zero straight sides.' I hope this allows you to better meet the needs of your kiddos, wherever you teach!! :-) *********
Hello all!! This upcoming week our kindergarten team will be starting to introduce shapes to our kiddos. We have decided to start SLOWLY and only introduce a few of the very basic 2D shapes of circle, oval, triangle, square, rectangle, and rhombus. In order to help us, I created a simple easy reader that introduces these shapes, as well as uses several color words, some number words (for the number of sides the shapes have), and some simple sight words. We are going to work with this book all week long, and help them to understand that a shape doesn't change no matter what size it is or how it is turned around on a page.
I would love to hear how you used this resource, so please leave me some feedback!! Please come follow my blog at www.kinderdragons.blogspot.com and my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/kinderdragons.
