This book shows Kindergarten through third grade teachers how to provide real experiences in Geometry for students in their classrooms! It contains lessons that are clearly explained and well-illustrated. All of the activities are meant for the children to work with many times. Each lesson includes questions and suggestions for observing & facilitating children as they work. Assessment questions are also included. The level of complexity changes as students work and grow. It includes a planning guide for each grade level (K-3), directions for making materials, blackline masters, and a glossary of geometric terminology. The following manipulatives are used throughout the book: Geoboards, Pattern Blocks,Tangrams,Wooden Cubes, Tiles, Power Blocks, Mirrors,Geoblocks, Primary Building Blocks, and Attribute Blocks.

I am a homeschool parent and as I got ready to teach kindergarten this year, I was puzzled as to how I was going to introduce the geometric concepts that the state standards outline. I bought this book because I love Kathy Richardson's Developing Number Concepts Books (esp. #1). I put it on the shelf until tonight, because my regular curriculum (Singapore Math) is about to introduce Geometry.

I looked at the pages in the Singapore Math, and they are really just the same old worksheets. So, I am so thankful that I bought this book. I am excited to use these very simple activities and lessons with my daughters. It only takes a few manipulatives (I have a basic variety of several different manipulatives) to give a child authentic ways to explore and work with geometric shapes. I know that this book is really going to help me give my children a solid understanding of geometry that they need. And I really appreciate how she breaks down what children should do at each grade level K-3.

I bought this book for my homeschooled children. We love hands-on math activities, as opposed to workbooks. Kathy Richardson does a great job of explaining geometry concepts in simple terms. Her activities that correlate are also very simple, yet effective. I recommend this book to any teacher or parent wishing to teach geometry.
