-Apply transformations and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations. -Use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems. Teaching shapes through various *FREE* activities such as geoboards and shape hunts!
A Place Called Kindergarten: math.love this as a center for sorting shapes! (Could also make shape mats all white or black so the children are only using the shape without the color cues after they master it with colors)
Sorting activity for pattern/shape blocks. From Playfully Learning: Our Sticky Easel . I like the set up of the materials - sorting the pattern blocks into individual cups and the other side has yarn pieces sorted by color.
