Product Description
First graders make sense of their math world and numbers by talking about it! This packet gives your kids ways to talk purposefully about shapes and the geometry standards for K-2. Get your students comfortable with identifying properties of shapes, recognizing shapes partitioned in halves or fourths, and using defining and non-defining attributes to tell whether or not a figure is a triangle, rectangle or square.

Save 20% by getting the BUNDLE of Math Talks for 8 areas in math!

Visit my blog for ideas on how I used this in my classroom.

Included in this packet are slides with purposefully planned figures to get K-2 kids talking about shapes and their properties. There are 4 figures for each "talk" and 20 total talks (that's 80 figures to talk about altogether!). There are 4 planned talks for each of the following categories:
-What is a shape? (properties of shapes)
-Is it a triangle?
-Is it a rectangle?
-Is it a square?
-Which figure is divided in half/fourths? (2 talks for halves and 2 talks for fourths)

This product is available as an interactive powerpoint or pdf file. Plus, a main menu for easy navigation on each page! (Note: navigation links are only available in the PowerPoint file.)
