Grade Prekindergarten Module 2: Shapes

In Module 2, in the context of classroom play, children learn to identify, describe, sort, compare, and create two-dimensional (2-D) and three-dimensional (3-D) shapes and objects. Children develop vocabulary to describe the relative position of objects (e.g., top, bottom, up, down, in front of, behind, over, under, and next to), building foundational spatial reasoning abilities. In Module 1, students developed an understanding of numbers to 5. In Module 2, students practice these counting skills in the context of geometry (counting sides, corners, a group of triangles, etc.).
