ASSESSMENT 5 Day two – Mixed Up Animal Collage. During circle time, teacher will read the book Shape by Shape by Suse MacDonald. Follow book with class discussion on other animals/creatures that could be made with shapes. Ask each student to use pre-cut felt shapes to show the class their ideas of how to make their animals/creatures on a felt board. After discussion and each student has a turn with felt shapes, students will individually create a mixed up animal collage with precut shapes. When the project is complete, bring class back together and have the students share their mixed up animal and the shapes they used to the class. Teacher will use informal formative assessment through observation and asking questions. Teacher will take note of students who may need added help with shapes and will work further with these students in pairs. Make observations and notate on KWL Chart. Day three – Shapes in our World. During circle time, teacher will read Round is a Mooncake by Roseanne Thong. Discuss with the class shapes that students recognize in their everyday life. After the story, teacher will grab a polaroid camera and take the class for a walk around the classroom and playground. Have the students point out shapes they see in the world around them. Teacher will then take two pictures of the shapes students point out. Class will return to the classroom, teacher will keep one copy of the photo shapes and pass the rest out to the class. Each student will match their shape to the teachers and say what shapes they have. Teacher will use informal formative assessment through observation and questions to gauge student’s mastery of shapes. Students who still seem to be struggling will be pulled aside and continue lesson individually. Use KWL Chart to see if students are ready for summative assessment or need more lessons to help master content.
ASSESSMENT 6 Summative Assessment Throughout the unit, students participated in various activities that allowed the teacher to use informal formative assessments and KWL Charts with the preschool students. Students have worked with shapes in various ways in the lessons to be able to master shapes and their properties content. On the completion of this unit students will use the names of common shapes and everyday language to name and describe the properties of common shapes. Directions: Using a blank piece of paper and cutout shapes supplied glue shapes onto paper in any design you want. As you glue the shapes onto the paper tell your teacher what the shape is and what makes it that shape (for example: number of sides or what it looks like) until you have no more shapes left. Your teacher will record your answers.
