The Family Letters are intended to be sent home at the beginning and middle of the cluster. They explain big ideas of the cluster using family-friendly language. Families can also find tips for working with their children at home, digital games, videos, and books. This file contains both English and Spanish versions of the Family Letters.

This resource is from Tools4NCTeachers. In this lesson, students explore 3D shapes, such as rectangular prisms and cubes. The students will identify the attributes for each 3D shape and build shapes using sticks, marshmallows, and other materials. Pictures of sample student work and printable recording sheets are provided within this lesson.
This resource is from Tools4NCTeachers.In this lesson, students explore attributes of polygons in order to create 2D shapes using given attributes. Students need some basic background knowledge of the attributes of polygons, including angles, sides, vertices, and right angles. Remix this lesson to include sample student work... Sharing is caring :)
This resource is from Tools4NCTeachers.A Common Formative Assessment (CFA) provides a snapshot of current student understanding. It serves as a checkpoint, and may be used to guide future whole and small group instruction. This CFA addresses 2nd grade, Cluster 9 standards. Answer key is provided.
The intended purpose of this document is to provide teachers with a tool to determine student understanding and suggest instructional moves that may help guide a student forward in their learning. It is not an exhaustive list of strategies.
Many math topics require distributed practice across time. This helps students develop fluency and understanding of number concepts. The Daily Math Routines suggest quick warm-ups for the beginning of the math block, which serve as distributed practice.
This resource is from Tools4NCTeachers.In this lesson, students partition circles into halves, thirds and fourths as they create fraction flowers. Student recording sheets and sample pictures of student work are included within the lesson. Links to virtual tools and extension ideas are also provided. Remix this lesson to include pictures of your students' work!
This resource is from Tools4NCTeachers.Students need distributed practice of newly-learned skills to develop fluency, build proficiency, and deepen understanding. This file contains directions for activities which may be used as Cluster 6 games or math stations.
This resource is from Tools4NCTeachers. This file contains sample anchor charts to create with students. Anchor charts are to be made with students, then displayed as a classroom reference. Parents may also benefit from seeing anchor charts, as they provide a snapshot into the math class.Remix this resource to include pictures of your own anchor charts.
This geometry concentation game is from Tools4NCTeachers.Math games are fun, motivating, and provide opportunities for students to build number concepts, reasoning, and fluency. This game may be used as math stations or as whole group learning opportunity.
This resource is from Tools4NCTeachers.This resource contains a set of two PowerPoints (one for two-dimensional shapes and one for three-dimensional shapes). Each PowerPoint contains several activities and tips for exploring geometry and developing vocabulary. These PowerPoint slides may be used to support the development of lesson plans or provide proessional development to teachers.
This resource is from Tools4NCTeachers. In this lesson students are introduced to the vocabulary associated with partitioning shapes into equal shares. Students will also explore shapes that are partitioned into halves, thirds, and fourths. Student recording sheets and pictures of anchor charts are included within this lesson.
This resource is from Tools4NCTeachers. This file contains a set of 4 tasks (including scoring rubric, recording sheet, printable materials, and student work samples). The tasks may be used for instruction or assessment. The focus of standard G.3 is on partitioning circles and rectangles into 2, 3, and 4 equal shares. Most of this resource focuses on partitioning rectangles. Please remix this resource to add additional circle tasks. Sharing is caring!
This resource is from Tools4NCTeachers. In this lesson, students create polygons on geoboards and record the polygons on geodot paper. They write riddles about the polygons and have classmates guess their shape. Printable Geodot paper and student work pages are included within this lesson. Remix this lesson to include related math centers and pictures of student work.
This resource is from Tools4NCTeachers. This file contains a set of 3 tasks (including scoring rubric and recording sheets). The tasks may be used for instruction or assessment.The focus of standard G.1 is on recognizing/drawing 2D shapes and recognizing/describing 3D shapes. Please remix this resource to help create additional tasks - especially for 3D shapes!
This resource is from Tools4NCTeachers. In this lesson students will sort polygons, paying attention to their attributes. They will use geometric vocabulary and identify their sorting rules. Sorting cards, activity sheets, and sample student solutions are included within this lesson.
This resource is from Tools4NCTeachers. In this lesson, students will determine ways to partition a sandwich into two equal parts and determine if the halves are the same size. Then students will work with partners to determine different ways to partition a sandwich into fourths and prove that the fourths are equal shares. Sample student work and recording sheets are provided within this lesson.Remix this lesson to share extension activities and related math centers.
This resource is from Tools4NCTeachers.In this lesson, students are given boxes to cut apart. As they decompose the boxes, students notice the 2-dimensional shapes used to construct their 3-dimensional boxes. A printable student recording sheet is provided within this lesson.Remix to include pictures of student work samples.
