I want to hear how you sort them so remember to have your mic turned on! When you are done, tap check Supporting adults: I'd like to see what the children know now before we continue with this unit. Please give them time to try this by themselves before you step in to help them. Always remember to ask "WOULD YOU LIKE MY HELP?"

Later we will look at differentiating squares and rectangles. Learning Intentions: To begin to find and describe basic 2D shapes using informal language without naming.
