Worksheets for Kindergarten, module 2, lesson 5

Worksheets, solutions, and videos to help Kindergarten students learn how to describe and communicate positions of all flat shapes using the words above, below, beside, in front of, next to, and behind.

Topic A. Two-Dimensional Flat Shapes

Lesson 5 Concept Development

Cut out all of the shapes and put them next to your paper with the duck. Listen to the directions and glue the objects onto your paper.

1. What new (or significant) math vocabulary did we use today to communicate precisely?
2. How did you place each object on your paper? Go through each direction (above, below, in front of, next to, and behind) and compare where students put their objects on their paper.
3. Compare with your partner. Did you put your shapes in the same place as your partner?
4. What shapes do you see on your paper? How did you know they were those shapes?
5. How did the Application Problem connect to today’s lesson?

Learning Goals: I can describe a flat shape's position, using next to, below, above, behind, in front of, and beside.
