Consider reviewing your daily Calendar activities and updating them to reflect the new Kindergarten Common Core Standards.
Use this set of flashcards of the 2-dimensional shapes-square, rectangle, circle, hexagon and triangle to develop an anchor chart that lists “What Our Class Noticed About These Flat Shapes”.
The anchor chart would then grow with student information about what they are noticing about the shapes as they do activities during center, calendar, or math instructional time.
The “math talk” card (suggested by Debbie Diller in her book “Math Work Stations”) could be used while the students play the game to ensure that a rich vocabulary is being used while playing the game.
The dominoes, which use the same images as the flashcards, could then be used as a follow-up practice activity at the end of the month as a summarizing activity.
The domino game could be played in whole group with groups of 2 or 4 students, OR be placed in a math center for small groups of two or four children. There are 5 pages or dominoes or 40 dominoes.
