In this standard, students will learn the names of shapes and use them to describe objects in their surrounding environment.
Over, Under, On
Next, students will start to describe different shapes and their relative positions in their environment (e.g., above them, below them, next to, etc.)
Students will practice identifying and naming different-sized shapes correctly.
Which Way Do Shapes Point?
Kindergarten students will continue to name shapes of different orientations and sizes.
Flat or Solid?
In this standard, students will begin to identify shapes as two- or three-dimensional.
Square or Cube?
Building upon that knowledge, students will start to compare and contrast flat and solid shapes by counting their sides, points, and other qualities.
It’s time to practice with their hands! Students will begin building and drawing shapes, using their environment as inspiration.
Make Bigger Shapes
Finally, students will learn how to form larger shapes from the simple shapes they’ve familiarized themselves with.
