What's a Quadrilateral?! (Step into 2nd Grade with Mrs. Lemons)
Well, I'm back to the daily grind...teaching and such ;)! How was your first day back?! Some very fortunate teachers out there said they always have the Monday after Thanksgiving off. Which means t
Math Anchor Charts- Geometry
The above anchor chart is on classifying quadrilaterals. It is important for students to understand that there is more than one way to classify a quadrilateral. For example, a square is a quadrilateral because it has four sides and four angles. It is also a parallelogram because it has two pair of parallel sides. It is a rhombus because it has four right angles, two pair of parallel sides, and 4 sides of equal length. It can also be a rectangle. So, a square is a quadrilateral…

Ok, so yesterday when I told you how CRAZY this week had been? It's much better now. I had to call about FIVE parents yesterday to let them know their kids were BEYOND crazy! And I was LOVING today. I actually wrote a lot of "Love Notes" to their parents today letting them know that they had a MUCH better day. It's amazing how excited kids get over love notes like that. I had one kid standing in line to get his "Thursday" folder that saw a kid in front of him getting a note in his folder…
This is an info sheet of everything students need to know about quadrilaterals. Great for interactive notebooks or in a sleeve in student binders. I have used it with great success with my 3rd through 6th grade students. Also included are a notes sheet and a quiz.
