Objective: Identify the size and shape of objects in the story.
TEKS: Math– Kindergarten – Knowledge and Skills – Geometry and Measurement – identify attributes of two dimensional shapes; Grade 1 -Knowledge and Skills – Geometry and Measurement – classify and sort regular and irregular shapes based on attributes; Grade 2 – Knowledge and Skills – Geometry and Measurement – classify and sort three dimensional objects.
Modifications: Depending on grade level and ability of students have students work in small groups or one on one.
Materials: book This is Not My Hat, shapes for students to sort
Introduction: read This is Not My Hat to students
Body: While reading book discuss the size and shape of the fish and the hat. Do the students think the small hat should go with the small fish? Why or why not?
Conclusion: Have students sort three dimensional shapes in different groups (small, medium, large), (number of sides), (color).
Assessment: Were students able to correctly sort shapes?
