Episode Summary

Hey teacher friends! In today’s episode we are talking all about teaching shapes, specifically 2D shapes with students early on in the year. This is one of the first units that I do with my students, and it’s something that a lot of them come in knowing a good amount about. We can take what they already know and extend it to some deeper understanding. So we’ll get into some of my favorite ways to teach and explore shapes in kindergarten.

In this episode I share:

  • Kindergarten shape activities
  • Exploring shapes and building knowledge
  • Explicit teaching of shape names and characteristics
  • Extending shape exploration with play-doh and sorting activities
  • Using pattern blocks and geoboards to explore shapes
