We have begun to talk about shapes in our class. Yesterday we brainstormed different shapes we knew (i.e., oval, square, circle, rectangle, octagon, pentagon etc). We discussed their characteristics and things similar and different about various shapes (i.e., squares have 4 equal sides while rectangles also have 4 sides, but they are not all equal).
Today we went on a shape scavenger hunt in the school. Students took their clipboards and recorded shapes they recognized. Here are some shapes the students saw:
Show your child these pictures and see if they can identify the shapes they see.
