    Description: Turn a classroom nuisance into a delightful geometry unit assessment tool! With puppetry, poems, and geoboards, students move from understanding basic shapes to sorting, describing, identifying, and demonstrating attributes of two- and three-dimensional figures. The unit is designed to include multiple intelligence and differentiated learning style activities, including music and theatre. The neat little geometrically folded Chatter Box that kids so often make in class is used as an assessment instrument by becoming a puppet who will perform a short, jazzy, student-generated script explaining how it went from a flat two-dimensional figure to the stylish three-dimensional shape it is now. This integrated unit is presented in Reading Block Framework design. Integrated lessons for each day include Math, Working With Words, Writing, Shared Reading, and Literacy Link (the home connection), with suggestions for Guided Reading and Self-Selected Reading.
