Phase I Curriculum
Geometry - Math Geometry 3_5
Geometry and spatial relationships are a part of children's daily lives. Understanding an object's position in space and learning the vocabulary to describe position and give directions are important. Simple terms like above, below, left, right, or between, enable children to order and describe the world around them. They can apply these terms as they describe plane and solid shapes in the classroom.
Although children are familiar with the most common shapes, up until now they may not have been able to verbalize what distinguishes a square from a rectangle or a circle from a triangle. They will learn to describe shapes in terms of their sides and corners. A triangle is a shape with three sides and three corners. A rectangle is a shape with four sides and four corners. They may notice that opposite sides are the same length. A square is a rectangle in which all four sides are of equal length. A circle is a round shape that has no sides or corners. These attributes, as well as size, can be used to sort and classify shapes.

No prior knowledge on the part of the student is needed, although it is helpful to have had experience keeping a steady beat, using Curwen hand signs to indicate Do and Sol, using quarter, eighth, and/or sixteenth notes in 2/4 and 4/4 meter, identifying different sections of a piece through listening, and playing non-pitched and pitched percussion instruments. Experience moving throughout the room to music as well as working in partners or small groups is also helpful for sections of the lessons, with established guidelines for such activities.
