Lesson Objectives Students will be able to identify and describe shapes 100% of the time. Students will be able to identify the differences between two shapes 100% of the time.
Introduction to Activities I will ask the students what shapes they know. We will sit on the carpet and use blocks of different shapes to see what shapes the students already know.
