Circles Go ‘Round and ‘Round

Teaching Tips:

Create a class book describing geometric shapes. Expand on concepts by encouraging children to write about other geometric shapes.

Play “I Spy.” Children should choose an object in the room. Describe it in terms of shape, color, etc. “I spy an object that is large, round, and white…” Other students should then guess the mystery object.

Go on a “Shape Walk.” Tell children to find all the circles they see in nature. Give them time to draw various objects in a circle-shaped book. Repeat the activity using other shapes.
