indergarten Math Lesson - Classifying Objects by Shape

Help your kindergarten students grow their confidence and math abilities as they practice classifying objects by shape in this digital math game. Students will put their geometry skills to the test in this interactive math activity from as they work on the following learning objectives:

  • Identify a variety of flat shapes, including rectangles, triangles, diamonds, ovals, stars, hearts, and more.
  • Choose the two-dimensional shape that matches the given shape name.
  • Decide which shape belongs to the group.

Questions in this kindergarten geometry activity are presented in multiple-choice format and drag-and-drop format.

As children work through this online geometry game, they will have access to a variety of handy features built into the math lesson that will help them make the most out of their math practice session:

  • A speaker icon indicates the program's read aloud feature. Students can click this button to have the question read out loud to them in a clear voice. The read aloud feature is a great option for ESL/ELL students and children who are auditory processors.
  • A hint button is available for when students need a little extra help solving a math problem. Students can click the hint button to view a written or pictorial clue that will point them in the right direction without giving away the answer.
  • A detailed explanation page will appear each time students answer a question incorrectly. The explanation page shows the correct answer accompanied by an easy-to-understand explanation to help children learn from mistakes and improve their accuracy.
  • A score-tracker shows children how many points they have earned for correct responses.
  • A progress-tracker tells students how many questions they have answered so far out of the total number of questions in the math activity.

All of these helpful tools were designed by the I Know It team to help your students achieve success in their math practice sessions.
