1 Kindergarten: “When a Line Bends…A Shape Begins” by Rhonda Gowler Greene Main Idea: The students will develop an understanding of shapes and their properties as well as where they would be found in real life.
2 Summary of Lesson: After we have discussed various shapes as a class, we will read the book When a Line Bends…A Shape Begins by Rhonda Gowler Greene. We will bring in pictures of shapes found in everyday life and then discuss what other shapes are found in our room as well as outside the classroom on the playground. We will go outside and look at the shapes on the playground. We will let the students explore the playground and have students share what shapes they found. Then we will come back to the classroom and the teacher will explain that the students should think about one shape that they saw today and draw a picture showing where they saw that shape. The students will then share their pictures with the class and tell what shape they used.
