V.A.1, V.A.2, V.A.3, V.A.4, V.A.5
TLW identify the characteristics of circles, squares, and triangles.
TLW give examples of these shapes found in the classroom and mark findings on tally sheet.
TLW construct a bar graph showing the amount of various shapes around the classroom.
Differentiation strategies to meet diverse learner needs: Teacher can draw height of each bar graph that matches tally amount so learner can simply color in or match his/her shapes to the correct height.
