# Shapes/Area Unit 6/Ch.19

## Materials:

Pattern Blocks, Unifx Cubes, Geo Boards, GEO KITS, Solid Shapes, grid paper,tech integration (see below) IPAD Pattern App

## How many more sides does the hexagon have than the trapezoid?

## Area-the number of square units needed to cover a surface

In your unit folder there is a hard copy of the third grade practice for area. Our students will work on the workbook practice 211-212 for this skill.

## VOCABULARY-create anchor charts for plane and solid shapes as well as area with the words, definition and drawing.

Plane/2D/Flat -solid/3D- faces, edges, vertices, circle, triangle, square, rectangle, trapezoid, pentagon, hexagon, quadrilaterals, sphere, cylinder, cube, cone, rectangular prism, , area

## Plane Shapes

Whole and Small Group

disregard: heptagon, nonagon, decagon and dodecagon

## Solids

Example of an anchor chart you can create ...

* pyramid is not a second grade geometry standard

## Small Group Activities-I have included several for plane, solid shapes and area.

There is a hard copy in your unit folder

* make as many copies as you need or you may laminate a few to have for small group

## SHOW ME! Use the geoboards....

Have students show you..example...

• a hexagon
• a trapezoid
• a triangle
• a plane shape with four equal sides
• a plane shape with four vertices
• a plane shape with more than four vertices

## AREA-a great activity for area and a nice transition to multiplication (next unit)

SENTENCE STEM: The area of rectangle A is _______.

## Tech Integration-use the Pattern Shapes app on the iPAD to combine shapes as well as Explain Everything and Chatterpix.

Scavenger Hunt- we did this two years ago for our measurement unit, the students loved walking around the school and reporting their results back to the class. Send a group of 2-3 students at a time with a stopwatch for 10 minutes...

(F) compose two-dimensional shapes by joining two, three, or four figures to produce a target shape in more than one way if possible;

Making new shapes into other shapes… Vocabulary is important; Students will need to understand what compose and decompose mean; Have students start with composing (putting together) shapes using pattern blocks and then decompose the shapes.

## SMART EXCHANGE Interactive lessons

This one is perfect to teach/review plane (polygons) and solid shapes. Note: Use the first few slides that focus on polygons and solids....

This one goes with the book Greedy Triangle

## Create a KAHOOT or use one that has been made!

HOW TO PLAY A GAME OF KAHOOT!

## FLASHCARDS

Flashcards are here

* attach to backpack to take home and practice 5 minutes a day

*recording sheet/planner parents signature (daily/weekly)-send reminders via Class Dojo

Monthly 5 minute fact fluency test-set a date

## Continue teaching time at EDC and whenever possible...

Here is a great idea to Integrate attributes for plane and solid shapes in EDC-focus on a type of plane shape or solid every week, include the term quadrilateral...

If you need one....We have this star organizer in the language arts lab!

## Time TEKS and games

2.9 (G) read and write time to the nearest one-minute increment using analog and digital clocks and distinguish between a.m. and p.m.

Learning to tell time is challenging for children. In order to read an analog clock, they must be able to read a dial-type instrument. Furthermore, they must realize that the hour hand indicates broad, approximate time while the minute hand indicates the minutes in between each hour. As students experience clocks with only hour hands, they begin to realize that when the time is two o’clock, twofifteen, or two forty-five, the hour hand looks different- but is still considered “two”. Discussing time as “about 2 o’clock”, “a little past 2 o’clock”, and “almost 3 o’clock” helps build vocabulary to use when introducing time to the nearest minute.

Try: Bang on Time and Teaching Clock-include this link on your website and send the link to parents

## PLC-Tuesday, January 2 from 10-12

Bring:

Laptops

Bring 1-2 Make & Take for a skill previously taught and/or an upcoming skill (multiplication, Measurement, etc)

I will print out your DMAC data.

Our goal is to identify the weaknesses/strengths of the students and have a plan of action to address their needs.
