Module 8
Recognizing Angles, Faces, and Vertices of Shapes,
Fractions of Shapes, Time

Throughout this module, students will: 
  • tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m.

  • recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.

  • partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares and describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc. 

  • describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
