Geometry

We've been working on geometry in our classroom this week.

Since we've not had math books in several years, I have become very adept at making my own things.

In fact, I have always enjoyed making activities for my classroom.

So, when Common Core came out this year, I started making LOTS of my own stuff.

The geometry standards are no exception.

 We've been making Shape Monsters.

 This is only part of the Grandma's Quilt activity.  We've been working on manipulating the squares to form different versions of a quilt to demonstrate rows and columns.


 We've been leaving teasers of "What Shape Am I?" in the hallway for other students to enjoy also.
 The mystery is revealed!
 I just posted this Geometry unit  in my TPT store. 



  This 72 page comprehensive unit has I Can posters of the Common Core Standards, Anchor Charts of the shapes and their attributes, Vocabulary cards of important words used in the standards and Essential Questions cards to post.

Lots of fun activities are included to cover each standard throughout the unit.

EXPLICIT directions are included in the Lesson Plans section and gives differentiation for the activities for high and low students as well as additional ideas beyond the printables.
There are ASSESSMENTS to use for pre-tests, post-tests, or other evidence.  (We use standards-based report cards, so these are great for those evidence grades!)
I've also included books and websites for you to use in the Resources.


I've tried to include EVERYTHING that I need in my own classroom and yours as well.  I think this unit will make teaching this unit a breeze whether you teach it for a week or for a month like we do.
You can find it in my store on an INTRODUCTORY SPECIAL at 50% off until 10:00 Thursday night (EST), so hurry over and get yours!

You know I can't leave you without giving you a FREEBIE!  This sort is not included in my Geometry unit, so you'll want to be sure to get this in addition to my unit!
