Math Class
In math this week, one of our activities is identifying shapes. Students need to identify 2D shapes (square, circle, triangle, rhombus, etc.), and describe them. For example, students area learning that a square has four straight sides that are all equal length. It also has 4 corners. At home, identify shapes you see in pictures or objects around the house. Practice square, circle, triangle, rectangle, rhombus, oval, trapezoid. Can you find other shapes as well?
