Today your child took home shape flash cards. On the ring there are the 5 2d/flat shapes and the 4 3d/solid shapes your child will be accounted for. Not only is it important to name the shapes, but to also describe them and compare them. It is important to compare a 2d shape to another 2d shape, but also a 2d shape to a 3d shape. For the next two weeks we will only be focusing on the 2d shapes (circle, square, rectangle, hexagon and triangle). We will continue 3d shapes during the 3rd quarter.
Some vocabulary you can use while describing the 2d shapes may include: 2d, flat, corners, sides, straight line, curved, round
Thanks for continuing the learning at home!!!
