We were *supposed* to finish our geometry unit in December. Ahem. However, we were rushed and SO many of my students are language impaired that I felt they could REALLY use more time with the vocabulary (since that is all that third grade geometry is). I am in the middle of creating a geometry supplemental unit for math. So far I have created:
- a dictionary
- a concentration game
- a Kaboom! game
- a Quick Draw game (kinda like Pictionary)
- create a snowman
- create a robot
I am thinking of adding an assessment and maybe picture vocabulary cards?
What concepts/ideas are most important to you when teaching geometry? Is there anything else you wish I would add? If there is, please let me know in a comment below. Even though my focus is on my own students, I would love to adapt this to your classroom needs as well! Thanks for you input/comments!
Please don’t forget to enter the AWESOME GIVEAWAY that my blog, along with 11 others are participating in!!
