Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); for a wide variety of shapes; build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.
Standard TypeMichigan State Math Standards
Join Mrs. Markavich for a number talk with Abracus as we work on compensation. We'll sort, describe and create solid shapes.
Sort Flat Shapes
Join Mrs. Markavich for a number talk with Abracus as we work on compensation. We'll sort flat shapes and create a data display to represent our sort.
Triangles, Rectangles and Squares
Join Mrs. Markavich for a number talk with D.C. as we work on decomposing and composing to make a 10. We'll also explore what makes a shape a triangle, a rectangle, or a square.
Sort and Name Shapes
Join Mrs. McCartney for some fun with Professor Barble doing a tricky comparison word problem. Next, we are going to explore triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons by sorting and naming a variety of shapes.
