A Geometry Lesson with First Graders

Marilyn Burns

Abstract


The geometry lessons traditionally included in first-grade textbooks focus children on learning to recognize shapes - squares, triangles, circles, rectangles. Textbook pages typically show a collection of shapes and ask children to identify all that match a given figure. Learning the proper names of the shapes is always an objective for first graders.
