Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction

  1. Begin by explaining to the students that shapes are what make up the world around us. There are many different types of shapes, and each one has different characteristics.
  2. While reading the content pages, give the students additional examples of attributes. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding.
  3. Introduce the notes on recognizing shapes. Have the students practice using different shapes. Instructors can draw them on the board, or have paper cut-outs of shapes premade.
  4. While reading the content pages on composite shapes, give students additional examples to help them understand how putting shapes together create new shapes. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding of shapes.
  5. While reading the content pages on partitioning shapes, give the students shapes that they can cut or draw on to partition into equal parts.
  6. Distribute the activity page to students. Hand out crayons or markers to students. Have students share their pictures with the class.
  7. Distribute the practice page. Check and review the students’ responses. Have students work together, and check their work with a partner.
  8. Distribute the homework page.
  9. Ask students what shapes they can see in around them in the classroom.
  10. Allow for responses and discussion.
