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.

Procedure

First, you will introduce the basic shapes such as circle, triangle, square, and rectangle. Talk about the shapes and how many sides each shape has. You can make up a shape and personalize each shape as if the shape spoke about itself. This would help students learn. Once the students have learned these shapes, you can add the others.

Grading
