Practice identifying flat shapes in this interactive math lesson for kindergarten. Students will practice basic geometry concepts as they become familiar with two-dimensional shapes, including hexagons, triangles, circles, squares, rectangles, and more. Students will also become familiar with properties of shapes, including how many sides and corners specific shapes have.
Students will be presented with a variety of question types in this kindergarten math game. In some of the questions, students will drag and drop shapes into a T-chart, sorting them according to their kind. In other questions, students will be given multiple choices and be asked to choose the correct answer. In still other questions, students will be expected to fill in the blank with the correct answer. Students may be asked questions like "How many sides does a hexagon have?" and "Drag the shapes into the chart: rectangles and triangles," and "Identify the shape."
'I Know It' is an interactive math practice website geared toward elementary-aged children to help them become confident and proficient in basic math skills, including flat shapes. Teachers enjoy using our math program because of our easy-to-navigate website format, helpful administrative tools, and quality educational content. Students enjoy 'I Know It' because of the bright, colorful graphics, whimsical character animations, and motivating incentives (like earning awards) when they reach milestones in their math practice.
When students practice identifying basic shapes in this 'I Know It' math lesson, several lesson features will help them make the most out of their math practice session. A progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of the practice screen shows students how many questions they've answered so far, and a score-tracker beneath that shows them how many questions they've answered correctly. A hint button shows students a pictorial clue that will help them answer the question. If students answer the question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page shows them where they went wrong so they can learn from their mistakes.
Teachers of ESL/ELL students, as well as students who prefer auditory learning, appreciate our read-aloud option, indicated by the speaker icon in the upper-left corner of the practice screen. When clicked, the question is read aloud to students in a clear voice.
