**Kindergarten Math Domain: Geometry**

In this domain, Kindergarten students will be introduced to different shapes all around them. Through eSpark Learning’s standards-aligned activities, students can practice and fine-tune their brand-new skills by playing games, watching interactive videos, and taking practice assessments. Teachers will be able to monitor students’ progress the entire time, ensuring their classroom is meeting the goals and expectations outlined in the Common Core Standards. Here’s a closer look at each standard within the Kindergarten Geometry domain:

**Shape Names**

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.)

**Different Shapes**

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.

**Draw Shapes**

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.

**Geometry **is one of five domains included in the Kindergarten math standards. During this phase of learning, students can expect to grow and develop their skills in:

- Describing objects and shapes in their surrounding environments
- Learning shape names
- Using terms like ‘above, below, next to, and behind’ to describe shapes in their environment
- Correctly identifying shapes regardless of their orientation or size
- Comparing and contrasting two- and three-dimensional figures
- Using different objects to create or draw shapes

With the help of eSpark Learning’s curriculum, teachers can help students become more proficient in each of these standards and learn 1.5 times faster than their peers. Teachers will also be able to closely monitor their students’ progress in each standard, tracking the success of each online game, learning song, interactive video, and practice assessment.

Below are examples of how eSpark Learning resources are aligned to each Common Core standard within the Geometry domain:

**Shape Names**

Describe objects in the 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.

In one of several eSpark Learning activities, students will learn the names of shapes all around them through a fun, catchy, and engaging sing-a-long video.

**Over, Under, On**

Describe objects in the 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.

Cat and Peg are back to help students describe objects through a magical shape hunt!

**Different Shapes**

Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.

**Which Way Do Shapes Point?**

Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.

With the help of The Singing Walrus, students will continue to learn about different shapes and how to identify them in different sizes and orientations (e.g., Identifying circles that make up a snowman or a triangle as part of a house).

**Flat or Solid?**

Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, "flat") or three-dimensional ("solid").

**Square or Cube?**

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).

Through a visual practice assessment, students will identify several different flat and solid shapes.

**Draw Shapes**

Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.

With the help of Scribbles and Ink, students can draw and color all sorts of shapes and sizes to help create a colorful story.

**Make Bigger Shapes**

Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes.

Students will use familiar shapes (like triangles, squares, and diamonds) to form larger shapes and pattern blocks in this final standard.
