PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Geometry activities just for Kinder! PLEASE NOTE: do NOT purchase if you've already bought my Geometry Printables for K-2 Math Journals! This pack is the kinder activities from that pack so there could be a kinder-only unit available.

Students LOVE having their journal/notebook to reflect on all the amazing work they've done. Help students to take charge of their learning by using notebooks!!


I stumbled across this concept in 2005 when I started teaching in England. It took awhile (because I didn’t know what I was doing at first), but once I got going, I LOVED IT AND WON’T TEACH WITHOUT IT NOW! I only wish someone would have explained it to me and given me more resources.

So..... what is it?

All independent work is recorded directly into notebooks, or if done on a worksheet, work is glued into the notebooks.

WHAT?!

For more about the ‘How to’, check out my manual *How to Use K-2 Journals here*

So what is in these resources?

Exactly what you need to PRINT & GO.

The objective and brief directions are at the top of each page and then printables that will save you so much time and paper. These ARE NOT worksheets. These resources are graphic organizer titles, activities that children will cut/mix up/use dice with/glue/etc and ideas for you! These are designed for notebooks that are 8 1/2 x 11 journals....if yours are smaller you will need to reduce when copying to fit your books.

What I hope you will enjoy most is the DIFFERENTIATION I’ve included for you. I know that we have students that are behind, on-level or advanced. My resources are layered as much as possible (that’s why there’s so many pages!!) so that you have choices for your students. There is no reason they should all be doing the same thing when they are at different levels. Gotta love differentiated activities!

PICTURE EXAMPLES.

I’ve included pictures of many of the actual journal pages completed at the end of each pack (I’ve noticed that some of my early packs don’t have this, so I’m trying to go back and add this). I know I’m a visual person, and I love seeing picture examples rather than reading about it.

I also update my resources as time goes by, so you will probably get TPT emails now and then that say to redownload something because I’ve updated it.

Well that’s about it. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to email me at thesimplenotebook@gmail.com. I LOVE talking about journals and will talk about it with anyone and everyone....so basically there is no question too big or too small. It changed my teaching practices tremendously and I would love it to change yours too!!

Fonts are not too funky for young children : )

Aligned with Common Core:
K.G.1 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.

K.G.2 Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.

K.G.3 Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, "flat") or three-dimensional ("solid").

K.G.4 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).

K.G.5 Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes

K.G.6 Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes.
