### How to teach Shapes

This 1.G.1 First Grade Common Core Lesson teaches us that shapes can be put into many different categories.

Being able to sort shapes helps students look for similarities and differences to create categories based on attributes.

Sort each shape into a category by size, how many sides, colors, or shape name. You might find that some shapes go into many different categories! After you sort, there is additional practice finding triangles and rectangles as well as drawing your own shapes!
