TEKS
•   (6) Geometry and spatial reasoning. The student uses attributes to
identify two- and three-dimensional geometric figures. The student
compares and contrasts two- and three-dimensional geometric figures
or both. The student is expected to:
•   (A) describe and identify two-dimensional geometric figures, including
circles, triangles, rectangles, and squares (a special type of rectangle)
•   (B) describe and identify three-dimensional geometric figures,
including spheres, rectangular prisms (including cubes), cylinders, and
cones
•   (C) describe and identify two- and three-dimensional geometric figures
in order to sort them according to a given attribute using informal and
formal language
•   (D) use concrete models to combine two-dimensional geometric
figures to make new geometric figures.
Describe and identify two-dimensional geometric figures,
including circles, triangles, rectangles, and squares (a
special type of rectangle)

• -Start out with a book entitled Circle Dogs by: Kevin Henkes to
get the students excited about the concept of shapes.
• -Hand out a coloring sheet to get the students looking at and
• -Create a chart of different shapes that are labeled.
• -Have the students recite what each shape is and count the
sides and corners.
Describe and identify three-dimensional geometric
figures, including spheres, rectangular prisms
(including cubes), cylinders, and cones

• -Bring some models of spheres, rectangular
prisms, cylinders, and cones and let the students
use them to describe to me the differences in the
shapes.
• -Count sides and edges
Describe and identify two- and three-
dimensional geometric figures in order to sort
them according to a given attribute using
informal and formal language
• -That the teacher has provided and are
instructed to cut out 2 dimensional and 3
dimensional shapes.
• -Then paste and label the 2 dimensional
shapes on one side and the 3 dimensional
shapes on the other side -The children will go
through magazines that they all brought and
some
Use concrete models to combine two-
dimensional geometric figures to make new
geometric figures.
• -Bring in some little plastic shape toys and let the
students use their creativity to create new
shapes.
• -Identify sides and corners, naming any shapes
they have never seen before whatever they
would like to call it
