Allow your students to have loads of fun practicing using quotation marks while describing attributes of quadrilaterals and showing off their creative talents.
Students can create their own quadrilateral creatures and use quotation bubbles to describe their shape either as a whole group lesson or independently at a center.
You can also use the quotes that are provided to introduce the topic and match up with the quadrilaterals.
These work for 2nd to 5th grade. Just have students describe their shape based on your grade level standard expectations. (I have included other 2D shapes as well- not just quadrilaterals) There are also colored and black and white versions of all shapes for you to choose from.
These are wonderful to display around the room or on a bulletin board. I have them on my door right now and everyone walking by comments on how great they are!

Texas: 2.8(C) classify and sort polygons with 12 or fewer sides according to attributes, including identifying the number of sides and number of vertices
3.6(A) classify and sort two and three dimensional figures, including cones, cylinders, spheres, triangular and rectangular prisms, and cubes, based on attributes using formal geometric language
4.6(D) classify two dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size
Common Core:2.G.A.1 Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces.5 Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
3.G.A.1 Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
4.G.A.2 Classify two-dimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines, or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles.
5.G.B.3 Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
