Grades

According to a 2013 survey* of K–5 teachers, writing on paper happens during a major part of the elementary school day. Handwriting still plays a significant role in today’s elementary classrooms. The percentage of time that students spend writing on paper increases as students progress through elementary grades.

Only 20% of instruction time is spent on lessons that use technology. In a successful classroom, handwriting and technology must work together in the classroom to create an engaged and balanced learning environment.

Majority of elementary ed teachers felt that training to teach handwriting would have been helpful. Despite its importance in the school day, a majority of elementary education teachers surveyed did not receive formal training to teach handwriting. However, 86% felt that training to teach handwriting would have been helpful.**

Shapes can be similar even when they are different sizes. A shape with three sides and three corners is a triangle no matter what size it is. Your children are ready to learn this by matching shapes of different sizes. This activity helps them learn the characteristics to notice (sides and corners) and the characteristics to ignore (size and color) when they sort by shape.

Grouping: Small group or whole class

English Language Learners: Practice the pattern of question and answer with this activity. Model how to rephrase the question into an answer. Are you my shape? No, you are not my shape.

Objective

Children find similar shapes of different sizes.

Activity

The little shapes want to find something big that is the same shape. Can you help? 1. Ask three students to stand in a line. Give each child a big shape. 2. Hand out small shapes to the other children in the group. Keep a rectangle for yourself. 3. Show how to check for a match. Are you my shape? No! My shape has four corners. Your shape doesn’t have corners. Continue until you find the big rectangle. 4. Give each child a chance to find a big shape of the same kind. Encourage them to talk about why their shapes are the same or different.

Check for Understanding Post the big shapes in different corners of the room. Give children a small shape. Ask them to move to the big shape that matches their shape. Are they able to make a match?

Support: Start with the circle and triangle. Talk about corners and sides to explain why shapes match.
