Last week we learned about 2D (Flat) and 3D (Solid) figures in my classroom. I am teaching the new Common Core Math this year and loving it!!! All week we did hands on activities to learn how to identify flat and solid figures. Monday we did a paper bag activity. I put flat and solid figures into a paper bag and each child had to reach into the bag, feel the figure and identify the figure as a flat or solid. After the figure was identified the student pulled the figure out of the bag for the…

My kids love 3-D shapes even more than they love 2-D shapes! They are super excited to learn everything they can about them, so that makes my job very easy. As always, hands-on exploration is essential in order for students to develop a solid understanding of 3-D shapes. So we play and explore a lot! I let the kids explore 3-D shapes by building, stacking, rolling, etc. Then, together, we create an achor chart. We describe the shapes using both formal and informal language (so the kids can…

We have had lots of fun exploring 3D shapes in our classroom over the past weeks. First we reviewed 2D shapes and we recreated this great anchor chart. If you know the original source of this anchor chart, please share it with me so I can give credit to the creator! I love this chart! (This is not my version, I forgot to snap a picture of mine!) The children made great connections between 2D and 3D shapes when they were on one anchor chart. We also sang this song PLENTY of times! We learned…

Do your students know their shapes? Can they identify and name each shape? If not, download these FREE Geometry Posters! These free posters include 2-D and 3-D Shapes of squares, rectangles, triangles, circles, trapezoids, cones, cubes, half-circles, quarter circles, triangular prisms, rectangular prisms, and cylinders. Hang these posters on your math wall to remind students about the shapes. It's important for students to recognize and name each shape in these posters. Click the pictures…

Thanks so much to each of you who commented on my last post about needing help with ideas for 3D shapes. I am going to try to implement lots of them this week. I also found a poem and made it a little more kinder friendly. I'll probably add it to our Reading Binders and try to recite it the rest of the week. Click on the picture below to download a copy for yourself. WARNING--Do not read the following statement if we're teetering on the edge of friendship, because I promise this will…

I have been so bad with updating my blog this year, so sorry. Here are a few pictures of what we have been up to. We studied three dimensi...

Sylvia Rodriguez from Decker Elementary came up with this3 D shape matching game.She used wooden 3 D shapes from the OWL curriculum and real items! You’ll need some prompts to use this activity to gather data about children's use of descriptive vocabulary. Here’s a few you might use: Why did you match this (cylinder) with this (play dough container)? Why are these the same? Why didn’t this (kleenex box) get matched with this (cube)?

Describing 3D shapes in kindergarten is now an expectation as it is a key geometry standard. This standard focuses on four main 3D shapes: cylinderspherecubecone Students should be able to describe the faces, vertices, and edges of each shape. So, what are some 3D shapes activities for kindergarten and resources for practicing this standard? Let's dive in! 3D shapes in kindergarten Look at the sequence of how we've taught shapes so far: First quarter we had to master the name of 2D shapes…
