In Grade 1 students are typically categorizing shapes by visualization and are beginning to describe attributes as they sort shapes into groups.
Kindergarten students, using Developing Roots Mathematics Program, can draw 3-D shapes when given a chance! When given time and structures young students can accomplish so much!
Our young Mathematicians names different shapes.
