Spooky Shapes

Teacher and 5 Strands of Proficiency (1)

Grade Level 1st Strand- Conceptual Understanding; comprehending

mathematical concepts. Students must think about the attributes of

1st Grade -I can use math tools and tell why I chose them.

Mathematics KCCSSM Standard(s) Be sure to have the code and key words

Domain/ Cluster CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.G.A.1

Geometry Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and

three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation,

overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.

Purpose: Students will be able to distinguish the different shapes by the total number of

sides they have. Students will also be able to identify specific shapes by their correct

name/label.

Lesson Topic Question:

How many sides does each shape have?

Engage/Hook/Anticipatory Set:

Our board will have various Halloween themed pictures on it along with two jack

o'lanterns on the table.

Stage 1: Explore/Before

-Student approaches table

-Table has bulletin board and the shape sides column board out

-We share with student(s) they will be learning about shapes today

-Have various objects with similar characteristics, have students state what they see is

similar, and what is different between those objects

-Students will have the shapes spread out on the ground for the students to see

-Students will see the large sheet with 3 different labeled columns

“Hi welcome to Math Night! We are so excited to show you our activity. How old are

you?”

“That’s great! You’ll do great with this. Today we are going to play with shapes. What are

some of the shapes you know?” (Triangle, circle, rectangle, square, etc.)

“On the table we have a lot of shapes laying out. *Picks up a random shape* Do you

think this shape has 0 sides, 3 sides, or 4+ sides?” (Students answers)

“You’re right!”

-Students will observe the different shapes and objects

-Students will place the objects and shapes observed in the column in which the belong,

that is on the large sheet that includes 3 different columns (4+ sides, 3 sides, no sides)

(Example- student has a shape/object that resembles the shape of a triangle, the

student then places the shape/object in the column labeled 3 Sides)

-Students will have shape name labels (in English and Spanish) on the table

-Students will see the different language labels and if preferred could match the shapes

with either the English or Spanish corresponding label.

-Labels also used as a learning piece for English speaking students, allowing them to

see the name of the shape in a different language

-Students will stick the shape name label to the matching shape, that is modeled on the

tri-fold board

“On the table we have a lot of shapes laying out. *Picks up a random shape* Do you

think this shape has 0 sides, 3 sides, or 4+ sides?” (Students answers)

“You’re right! Can you place the shape in the right column on this board for me?”

*Repeats this process with 3 or 4 more shapes*

“Now that I know you can count the number of sides a shape has, let’s talk about shape

names. What is this shape called?” (Have student name a circle, triangle, square, and

rectangle)

“Wow you’re doing great. Which picture on the board resembles a circle? Place the label

on whichever one you think is right.” (Repeat with other three shapes)

When presenting the board and activity to the student(s) there are many things we will

present. The first question we would ask would be What are some of the shapes you

know in your brain already? The student would then answer Square, triangle, rectangle,

circle. After breaking the ice about shapes, we would then ask What are the things that

make a triangle a triangle? The student would respond The number of sides/points it

has. When the student points out sides/points, we would then ask How can you tell if a

shape has sides? The student would think for a moment, then answer by stating They

have straight lines. They have points. They look like a box. The straight sides meet at a

point, etc. Once the student notices these things we will ask the How many sides does a

rectangle have? Student will answer 4. Following asking the question How many sides

does a square have? Student will answer 4. After pointing out that two different shapes

have the same amount of sides, we ask So what makes a rectangle and a square

different from one another if they both have 4 sides and 4 points? (Shows student a

picture on the board of a rectangle and a square). The student will observe the picture

and respond Rectangle is longer. Square sides are the same size. 2 sides of rectangles

are always longer, etc. After this discussion is finished, we will proceed to ask the

student Can you show me a shape that would go in the ‘no sides’ column? The student

*points to the circle. After that we will point out to the student Now, we know circles don’t

have any sides. Looking at these pictures of Halloween objects, which ones looks like a

circle, or doesn’t have any straight sides/points. The student will then *point to the

pumpkin.

Based on which columns the students place the various geometric shapes in and the

columns they place the various Halloween shapes in, we will be able to determine if they

understand the basic geometry concept while also seeing if they can apply the concept

to real-life examples.

Stage 2: Explain/During

1st Step: Students will observe the shapes that are scattered around, and decide which

column (4+ sided, 3 sided, no sides) it belongs in.

-Student will then place the shape in its column (Ex.- student picks up a circle, the

student will take a few seconds to determine its column, and proceed to place the circle

in the column labeled “no sides”).

-Students will then observe the name labels of different shapes that are listed on the

table, the student will proceed to take the labels and velcro them below the shape(s) on

the board in which it corresponds with. (Student picks up the label “triangle,” the student

then notices the candy corn on the tri-fold board, and proceeds to place the “triangle”

label beneath it.

2nd Step: We (Haley and I) will consolidate understanding by asking the students why

they chose to place the shapes in the columns they chose. Depending on the grade

level, we will count the sides with them.

Teacher Questions:

When explaining in Stage 2 we will ask the students Why do you think that shape goes

in that column? The student will respond with It has ___ sides/points. After the student is

familiar with the column chart, ask the student Did you almost put any of these shapes in

a different column but changed your mind? ---Why?. The student will respond by

stating I almost put the pentagon in the no sides column because it looked circular at a

quick glance. Tell the student that is not an uncommon assumption, and ask them Can

you think of another object besides a haunted house that could look square? What about

a circle?. The student will proceed to give more examples of what the real life objects

are similar to a square, as well as real life objects similar to a circle.

Based on the columns the students place the shapes in and the labels the students

place on the shapes, we will be able to measure whether the students understand the

basic concepts of shapes.

Stage 3: Extend/After/Expansion

-Students will take their observations from what they learned from placing the different

shapes in the columns on the sheet in which they belonged, and apply it to placing the

name labels of different shapes to their corresponding Halloween shape.

-Students will velcro the name(in English or Spanish) label to where it belongs on the tri-

fold board (Example- name label triangle velcroed beneath the candy corn shape that is

on the tri-fold board)

-Have the students perform the task of placing the different shape names to the different

shapes until they have applied their knowledge to the different shapes that are on the tri-

fold board

“Shapes are all around us. Everything has a shape. This table is a rectangle, for

example. Look at these halloween shapes we have on the board for a minute. Think

about their shapes and what you know about them.” *Gives time to think*

*Points to candy corn picture* “Let’s look at this one. What did you notice about this?” (it

has three sides, it’s a triangle, etc.)

“Great job! You counted the sides and it has three. Which shape did we say has three

sides?” (Triangle)

“Go ahead and place this velcro label next to the candy corn.”

*Repeat with three other shapes*

Teacher Questions:

When extending on the activity we would ask Why did you place the candy corn picture

in the triangle column? Once we ask this the students will support their action by saying

Because it has three sides and triangles only have three sides also. The student

proceeds to ponder on his/her thoughts, and we ask Why do you think the haunted

house is a pentagon? The student supports his/her answer by stating The haunted

house outline had five sides and so does a pentagon. The student shares that thought

and we decide to dive deeper into their head to see if they can relate what they just

learned to real-life examples by asking Can you use your brain to try and think of other

objects we see everyday that have the same basic shape as one of these? In hope, the

student replies Soccer ball is a circle, birdhouse is a pentagon, front of the school is a

rectangle/square.

What shape the student places in which column / label

Sees student making connections between rectangle/frankenstein, triangle/candy

corn, square/haunted house, circle/piece of candy

Student makes the connection between everyday items and the shapes they

belong to

Closure

After the students have finished labeling the halloween shapes with the correct name,

we will have them explain to us why they labeled each object the way they did. We will

then ask questions such as:

What made you think those were similar?

Are there some shapes that might have caused some confusion in which one

they were? Maybe a square and a rectangle?

Is there something new you learned about shapes?

Evaluation

-Based on how which columns the students sort the shapes into, we will be able to

measure whether or not they mastered the concept of comparing similar objects’

shapes.

-Based on which shape the student compares to the halloween objects, we will be able

to measure whether or not they understand applying 2-D shapes into real-world

situations.

Differentiation:

Autism (Low Functioning) Top 5 Characteristics

1. Reasoning and Proof (Wilkins, 2006)

2. Communication (Wilkins, 2006)

3. Connections (Wilkins, 2006)

4. Concrete and Visual Representations of Problems (Van de Walle, 2016)

5. Think-alouds (Van de Walle, 2016)

There are a few areas in our lesson that would not work well for a student with low

functioning autism. First, they sometimes only focus on one minute detail instead of

focusing on the the object as a whole (Wilkins, 2006). Our Halloween shapes are

pictures of popular Halloween objects. The barrier in this would be that the student might

not be able to focus on the shape of the object if they’re focused on what the picture is

instead. Another barrier would be the atmosphere of Math Night. Many students with

autism become over-stimulated when put in loud/chaotic environments (Wilkins, 2006),

such as Math Night. Lastly, many students with autism become hyperfocused on one

activity. Our activity involves two separate activities that relate to one another. The

barrier in this is that the student could potentially become hyperfocused on the first

activity and won’t move on to the expansion portion.

With all of that being said, there are various ways we can adjust our activity to fit their

needs. When it comes to only being able to focus on one characteristic of an object

instead of as a whole, a modification we could make is allowing the student to take the

object off the board and flip it over to the blank, white side of the picture. This would help

the student to only focus on the shape instead of the object itself. As stated above, they

can also become over-stimulated in loud, chaotic environments. An accommodation we

could provide to help avoid this would be to provide noise cancelling headphones for the

student to wear while sorting the shapes and placing the labels. This would allow the

student to focus on the activity and not become overwhelmed by everything else

happening. If the student began to hyperfocus on the first part of the activity, we could

remove the materials needed for the first activity so they are out of sight after the student

had sorted a few. This is following an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ method. The student

would be able to engage more easily in the second activity because the first activity is

not on the table to distract them.

These accommodations are said to be extremely helpful and beneficial in the success of

a student with Autism. By flipping the picture shape over it will reduce the distraction

from what is going on in the photo, allowing the student to focus on the actual frame and

shaping of the object. A second accommodation to provide more of an equitable learning

experience would be to provide the the noise cancelling headphones. The Job

Accommodation Network states that “Individuals with ASD may experience decreased

concentration and may not be able to tolerate distractions such as office traffic,

employee chatter, and common office noises such as fax tones and photocopying”

(Team, 2013). By using the noise cancelling headphones it will promote a more positive

learning environment for the student, enabling his/her focus level to exceed

tremendously. An accommodation that is very common for those with Autism is to

eliminate the amount of items around them. The Job Accommodation Network shares

how “Individuals with ASD may experience difficulty performing many tasks at one time.

This difficulty could occur regardless of the similarity of tasks, the ease or complexity of

the tasks, or the frequency of performing the tasks” (Team, 2013). Therefore, reducing

the amount of materials/tasks would be a positive accommodation for our student(s).
