This lesson is optional because it is an opportunity for extra practice that not all classes may need. In Activity 1, students revisit stage 3 of the Picture Books center. This center was first introduced in Kindergarten, and this stage in grade 1. In this stage, called Find Shapes, students describe, draw, and name shapes. As students learn more ways to describe shapes and their attributes, the shapes they notice and how they describe and name them may change. In Activity 2, students choose to continue working on Picture Books, or choose between two previously introduced centers focused on adding and subtracting within 100.
- Practice addition and subtraction within 100.
- Recognize and describe shapes seen in picture books.
- Let’s notice shapes in books and practice adding and subtracting.
Each group of 2–4 needs at least one picture book that shows a variety of shapes throughout the book.
Gather materials from:
- Capture Squares, Stages 3–4
- Number Puzzles, Stages 2–4
- Picture Books, Stage 3
