Shapes in art, shapes in stories, shapes in the environment, shapes all around. A multi-part lesson that includes looking at the artist Paul Klee's work, reading books about shapes, taking a walk in the neighborhood and identifying shapes, and maybe even writing some poems together.
I Know My ShapesShapes are here, there, and everywhere! The collection is organized in such a way that the beginning resources introduce youngsters to various 2-D shapes. They identify, name, and draw these shapes before recognizing shapes in the real world. Use the included images and lessons to make classifying shapes relevant to real life. The hands-on activities allow for manipulating tangrams and discovering new ways to make larger shapes. The last resources in the collection briefly introduce 3-D figures and their characteristics. *Take a look at the attached notes to each resource in the collection for ideas and suggested ways to use themPre-K - 2nd Math
