Description

This lesson is about shapes and personalizing them so that students can learn the shapes. For example, you can write a sentence or two about each shape. These sentences can be in first person point of view as if the shape was talking.

Learn about the sides of shapes

Materials Needed

Shapes - Circle, square, rectangle, triangle, oval, hexagon, octagon, and others with different sizes.
