Geometry is a hands on math unit that kids find engaging. I have been creating new products for beginning geometry and I can't seem to get enough of it. The more I create, the more ideas I get. I guess it is just as engaging for teachers as it is for students.
When I was teaching grade 2/3, I created several geometry products that I used in my classroom. I didn't realize that they were too advanced for younger students until my daughter-in-law started her practicum in a grade 1/2 class. She needed to introduce geometry for the first time to her students.
I decided to create some task cards for her to use. The focus was on recognizing 2D shapes and being able to identify them in our environment as well. I also decided to create a 2D and 3D bingo set to make the transition from working with 2D shapes to 3D solids.
