Name: Laura Hageman Lesson Focus: Describing, comparing, and naming 2-D shapes. Subject: Math Grade Students !n"o#"ed: $st grade Date %ritten: & '( $' Date )aught: $( 2 $' )ime Needed *or Lesson: $ hour Academic Standards: $.'.$.$ - Describe characteristics o* t+o- and three-dimensiona# objects, such as triang#es, s,uares, rectang#es, circ#es, rectangu#ar prisms, c-#inders, cones and spheres. Learning Objectives: .. /ontent: Students +i## be ab#e to describe, compare, and name 2-D shapes. 0. .cademic Language Needs: Students +i## be ab#e to use mathematica# "ocabu#ar- such as triang#e, rectang#e, s,uare, and circ#e, +hen describing di**erent 2-D shapes.

Provisions for Individual Differences: Students +i## be pro"ided both +ith '-D pattern b#oc3s to use to *i## in their shape and then trace the shapes, or students can use paper pattern b#oc3s to g#ue do+n instead o* tracing the pattern b#oc3s.

"od# of Lesson: - Sho+ students the triang#e poster. - .s3 students ho+ the- +ou#d describe this shape. o %rite students responses on the shape poster. - /ontinue this +ith rectang#e, s,uare, and circ#e posters. - .*ter a## o* the shape posters ha"e been described, as3 students to #oo3 around the room, do the- see and o* these shapes in the room. - !ntroduce Student .cti"it- 0oo3 p.$ - 95p#ain to students the- +i## use the pattern b#oc3s to *i## in this shape. <nce the- ha"e *i##ed in the shape, the- +i## record the di**erent shapes the- used on the bottom o* their +or3sheet. .*ter the- ha"e recorded the shapes the- used, the- +i## trace around each o* the shapes +ith their penci#. - 2ass out papers and ha"e students begin +or3ing. - %hi#e students are +or3ing, circu#ate the room and remind students to record the shapes the- use, and then trace the shapes. o 9ncourage students to *ind a di**erent +a- to *i## in the shape. $losure: - Ha"e students gather on the carpet and share some o* the +a-s the- *i##ed in the shape. - .s3 i* an-one +ants to add an-thing e#se to our shape posters no+ that theha"e had a chance to e5p#ore these di**erent shapes.
