Provide students with visual representations of the words and help them create group definitions. These students should be allowed to keep the pictures and definitions they create to assist them while they work with their teams. ) Standard • understands basic properties and similarities and differences between simple geometric shapes Grades K–2 Sample Lesson Vocabulary Words triangle vertex (corner) square side circle curved hexagon straight rhombus two-dimensional Procedure Differentiation suggestions for this strategy are provided on page 42.

Differentiation 54 Above-Level Learners Below-Level Learners Challenge students to use more than one word in each sentence. If they can do this correctly, allow them to give away two counters during that turn. Provide students with a list of the vocabulary words. Allow students to draw their own picture or symbol next to the words that are difficult for them. As the students use the words in sentences, instruct them to cross the words off their lists. Circulate around the room to help struggling students with their sentences.

Explain to students that over the next week they will be searching for things that represent each of the words on the list. Provide them with several examples until students grasp the concept of the activity. 4. Provide students with a point system to use when thinking about the objects they would like to collect. For example, 4 points for building a model or collage of the word, 3 points for bringing in a picture of the word, 2 points for finding a book or magazine about the word, and 1 point for drawing a picture of the word or writing a sentence using the word.
