This Kindergarten unit kit contains detailed and differentiated lesson plans, activities, games, and cards for your Guided Math whole group and small group lessons! This is Unit 6 out of 9 units for Kindergarten. It includes 19 detailed whole group lessons, small group lessons with activities, as well as an end-of-unit assessment.
The standards covered in Unit 6 are: describe objects in the environment and the relative positions of these objects as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to, classify and sort, correctly name shapes, identify shapes as 2D or 3D (flat/plane or solid), analyze and compare two and three dimensional shapes, model shapes in the world by building shapes from components, and compose simple shapes to form larger shapes.
