The student will demonstrate through the mathematical processes an emerging sense of two- and three- dimensional geometric shapes and relative positions in space (Standards, 2012).
Instructional Goal 1
Identify two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional shapes. Learning Objective 1: Students will take and identify foam two-dimensional shapes square, circle, triangle, and rectangle from a mystery bag with 80% accuracy. Justification: The mystery bag is used to cover the foam shapes from view. Students will need to use their sense of touch and their knowledge of the properties of the solids to identify them. Students are able to explore different orientations, sizes, and types to recognize that each shape has distinguishable characteristics. Learning Objective 2: Students will identify and record on paper three-dimensional shapes cube, sphere, and cylinder using real-world examples of the solids with 80% accuracy. Justification: Students explore these shapes using concrete models, pictures, and real world examples to generalize connections among mathematics, the environment, and other subjects. Learning Objective 3: Students will identify two out of three attributes (color, sides, size) from two-dimensional shapes square, circle, triangle, and rectangle. Justification: Students will use memorization and recognition skills to tackle these mathematical ideas. As students identify shapes and their attributes, they discuss and justify their answers to their teacher. Students understand the attributes of each shape through recognition.
Instructional Goal 2
Represent two dimensional geometric shapes.
Learning objective 1: Students will use streamers to make large size shapes in the air with 90% accuracy. Justification: Reinforcing the properties of two-dimensional geometric shapes while supporting gross motor development. The activity adds to the kinesthetic support young children need as they reinforce...
