  • define parts or attributes of two and three dimensional shapes
  • explore, create, and name shapes
  • recognize trapezoid, rhombus, cone, and rectangular prism
  • combine shapes to make a whole: composite shape
  • relate geometric figures to equal parts and name the parts as halves and fourths
  • compose and decompose shapes
  • tell time to the hour and half hour - both digital and analog
  • continue practicing daily fluency with addition and subtraction
