Materials Needed

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


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.


You can grade the students on how well they know the shapes.
