Question for you....

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!!

  1. What a heck of a unit!!!! I don't really think you need an assessment because any of the activities you created can be used as an authentic assessment. Voacab cards however will be usefull.
    Do your kids take a state exam?

  2. That sounds great! We also just finished our geometry unit. It is one of my favorites to teach. I agree that you should add an assessment! Those are always important! ;)

  3. First, let me say that it looks awesome! I can't wait to see the finished product! For 4th grade in Virginia, we need to be able to recognize the different types of lines in real life examples (railroads = parallel, four-way stops = interescting/perpendicular). Maybe you could include some real life picture activities?
