To kick-off the unit, we analyze 2D shapes, describe their attributes, compare and contrast them, and practice drawing them. As a whole-group, we create anchor charts to list attributes as we examine the different shapes.
At math small-groups, I help the students examine the shapes further, and they summarize about each of them on recording pages. This is a great informal way to assess if they have a foundational understanding of 2D shapes and related concepts.

I just love this snowman made of circles - look at the mouth! :-O
Adorable square robot!
You can buy my packet of 2D Shape Summary Pages over on TPT!
