After the introduction to shapes in my first shape unit:
Super Shapes Unit 1
this unit delves into the first Kindergarten CCSS Geometry standard: KG.A.1. KG.A.1. says that students will: Describe objects in their 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. My unit breaks this standard down and addresses it as fully as possible.
This unit will be perfect to help your PreK-1st students identify shapes in their environment and use position words to describe their location. Both 2D and 3D shapes are included in this unit: squares, triangles, circles, rectangles, hexagons, cones, spheres, cubes, and cylinders. In this 58-page unit, you will find student and class books, no prep worksheets, classroom activities, posters, and assessment options. More specifically you will find:
- Shape Hunt, including directions, a worksheet, and shape templates
- Find a Shape no prep worksheets, 2D and 3D versions
- Individual "Shapes All Around Us" printable books and photo sample, 2D and 3D versions
- "We Found Shapes" Class Book template with directions and parent letter, 2D and 3D versions
- Full color Positional Word Posters
- Superhero Star Game with directions and two types of card directions
- Positional Drawing no-prep worksheet
- Literature Link based off "The Greedy Triangle" with no-prep writing prompt
- Assessment Suggestions with 2D and 3D tests
The entire product has a maroon, gold, and purple color scheme and a superhero theme.
Along with CCSS KG.A.1., this unit aligns to the Virginia SOL standard K.12: Describe location of one object relative to another (above, below, next to)...
