This week and last week we are in the middle of a geometry unit. We've labeled and listed characteristics of plane shapes and solid figures. The kids did a great job learning terms like sides and corners for plane shapes, and faces, edges, and vertices for solid figures.
They used tangrams to make pictures using shapes. They also learned the names of the shapes and figures: circle, square, rectangle, rectangular prism, sphere, cylinder, cube, and cone.
We are mathematicians, readers, writers, scientists, teammates, and first graders. We spend our days exploring, listening, and learning. We know that learning can feel uncomfortable sometimes, but as a team, we support each other and help each other reach our goals. Join us on our journey!
