Student Learning Objectives:
· Students will be able to count to 100 by ones and tens.
· Students will be able to describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to.
· Students will be able to correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
· Students will be able to identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, “flat”) or three-dimensional (“solid”).
· Students will be able to model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g., sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.
· Students will be able to compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. For example, “Can you join these two triangles with full sides touching to make a rectangle?”
Activities To Do At Home:
· Count, count, count! Count mailboxes when you take walks. Count plates when you set the table. Count cars passing by. Count anything and everything! Make sure you are practicing counting by both ones and tens.
· Practice number formation (1-20) EVERYDAY! Be sure to correct number reversals when you see them. Make it fun! Use shaving cream during bath time, pudding, playdough, markers, crayons, pencils, etc.
· Encourage students to explore addition and subtraction using manipulatives (i.e. matchbox cars, m&m's, unifix cubes, etc). Create a number story and have them solve.
· Use addition and subtraction flashcards as a "secret password" to enter different rooms in your house. Before they are allowed in, they must answer the addition fact correctly.
· Give your child a group of 2D and 3D shapes. Have them sort them by dimension and name each shape.
· Practice describing positions of shapes with your child using positional words (above, below, beside, in front of, behind, etc).
·Provide different materials for building shapes (clay, toothpicks, paper, etc.) Name a 2D or 3D shape and have your child build it.
