Look! It's a Desk! It's a Table! It's a Shape!

My students need a geometry skill builder set, a shape sorting board, a hands-on matching center, a set of shapes beanbags, a magnetic shapes maze and other hands-on activities.

My Students

Quick! Take a look around you. How many squares do you see? How many circles? Triangles? Rectangles? My Kindergartners are busy exploring shapes around us.

I teach Kindergarten at a Title 1 Elementary School.

We educate children who come from a primarily low income, single parent background. Majority of our students receive free or reduced lunch. However, our students make the best of what they have. In addition, they strive to do their personal best each and every day. Our mission is "to provide a quality education in a safe environment where all children can succeed."

My Project

My students have limited examples of shapes to use for comparison and to explore with. I want to provide my students with a wide variety of examples and many opportunities to observe shapes. These materials are a much needed boost to our math supplies. It is extremely difficult for my students to find a certain shape if they do not have an example to go by. With these additional shapes, I can show my students an example of every shape we teach. The sorting activities and shape maze will assist my students in identifying various shapes. They will find the hidden shape in everyday objects. Shape beanbags enable my students to be active while learning their different shapes. My students and I can toss the beanbags back and forth while describing each shape. The remaining materials will provide my students with plenty of shapes to build with and sort. This will come in handy when we investigate how shapes can be put together to make new shapes.

My Kindergartners are learning all about shapes.

They are investigating shapes in the world around them. These materials will be a great addition to our unit. My students have a limited number of examples to work with right now. By providing my students with these hands-on activities and sorting centers, I will be exposing them to a variety of shapes. Come along on the shape journey with us.
