Exploring Shapes with Spielgaben

 

Exploring Shapes

We have been using our Spielgaben set to explore shapes this month. As we continue on with a very loose 1st grade math plan, I choose concepts I want to expose her to before beginning a more formal math program in 2nd grade.

Math Manual, Part 3, Chapter 1 ~ Play 28: Let’s Make Shapes

We have obviously worked with shapes before, so this was an extension of what she already knew.  For this lesson she learned the word vertex and we made vocabulary cards to go along to reinforce our new words.

Her other new word was quadrilateral, and we had fun making quadrilaterals together both with the balls and also the sticks.

This was a neat lesson built into a fun game.  We used 3 dice each with 1-6 on them.  We organized the sticks in groups as shown below.

We took turns rolling the dice and using the corresponding stick to build {or not build} a triangle, learning different things along the way – like the fact that you can’t build a triangle every time!

As we moved along she learned about an isosceles triangle!

We also learned about an equilateral triangle!
