Lesson seeds are ideas that can be used to build a lesson aligned to the CCSS. Lesson seeds are not meant to be all-inclusive, nor are they substitutes for instruction. When developing lessons from these seeds, teachers must consider the needs of all learners. It is also important to build checkpoints into the lessons where appropriate formative assessment will inform a teachers instructional pacing and delivery.
Unit/Cluster: Unit PK.G.A.1-2, Identify and describe two-dimensional shapes (circles, triangles; including square, which is a rectangle.
Standards Addressed in This Lesson:It is critical that the Standards for Mathematical Practice are incorporated in ALL lesson activities throughout the unit as appropriate. It is not the expectation that all eight Mathematical Practice will be evident in every lesson. The Standards for Mathematical Practice make an excellent framework on which to plan your instruction. Look for the infusion of the Mathematical Practices throughout this unit.
Lesson Topic:Exploration of Shapes.
The student will:
Method for determining student readiness for the lesson:
All students will participate. Lesson activities can be differentiated based on students’ understanding of two-dimensional shapes.
