Children learn about cones, cylinders, spheres, and cubes in this video, which supports the following Common Core State Standards:
Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, "flat") or three-dimensional ("solid").
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).
Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces.1 Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
Along with the video that streams from TpT, you'll get:
1. An illustrated lyrics page--Great for poetry or math notebooks.
2. A private link to the video on Vimeo--ONLY accessible to people who purchase the product on TpT. From Vimeo, you can stream, download, and embed the video--for classroom use only, please!
Encourage kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students to...
1. Read as they sing.
2. Find shapes during musical interludes.
3. Follow up by finding and describing shapes as a class.
You may also want to ask students to hold one of the shapes. When the shape is described in the song, they can stand in front of the class.
