Teach all the kindergarten geometry visually with explicit instruction and differentiation. Includes teacher progress reporting charts by standard, student self-tracking logs, teaching activities, and applications to life.
• Teacher Progress Reporting Charts by common core standard
• Student Self-Tracking Logs by common core standard
• Teaching Activities by common core standard
• Application of standard to life
Suggestions for Use:
• Build a folder for each student. Include one sheet each of the teacher tracking and student self-regulation charts for standards.
• When you meet with students to assess their learning, let them record their progress at the same time.
• Use the learning activities in Part Two to teach and assess the student’s skill level.
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?"
