Priority Standards:
K.G.1 Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to.
K.G.2. Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
K.G.3. Identify shapes as twodimensional (lying in a plane, "flat") or three dimensional ("solid").
K.G.4  Analyze and compare two and threedimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/"corners") and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length).
K.G.5  Model shapes in the world by building shapes from components (e.g. sticks and clay balls) and drawing shapes.
K.G.6 Identify shapes as twodimensional ("solid").
Objects can be similar to others in one way and different in other ways
