This week, I modeled a lesson on shapes in a kindergarten classroom. We read the book Shapes that Roll. We focused on the circle and its attributes. We created a Venn diagram to compare the similarities and differences between a circle and a square. Then students did a sort - circles and not circles. As they sorted, I walked around and asked them why they sorted their shapes the way they did.
