|Title:||Shapes of a Cloak|
|Learning Target:||I am learning to describe shapes in my environment and make larger shapes from smaller shapes. I am learning to ask questions about words I do not know.|
Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.
Compose simple shapes to form larger shapes. For example, "Can you join these two triangles with full sides touching to make a rectangle?"
Ask and answer questions about unknown words in a text.
|Title:||A Cloak for the Dreamer|
|Lexile Reading Level:||AD740|
|Formative Assessment Strategy:|
Students will be creating cloak designs from various shapes. They will explore which shapes are best for filling up the space inside the cloak. Students will answer “How many questions” about the number of shapes they chose to create a design. Students will informally discuss the words: tailor and cloak.
Various shapes (rectangle, square, triangle, hexagon, circle) made from scrapbook paper in various sizes

This could be a two day lesson plan:
Possible separation for day one and day two lesson plan”
Have students clear their cloak template. Use the scrapbook fabric pre-cut shapes and allow students to design their own cloak, making sure to fill the entire space. Students should be allowed to use whatever shapes they want of varying size, shape, and design.
In your opinion, what shapes fit best?
What shape attributes fit better (ex: straight edges, corners, etc.)
How any squares, rectangles, etc. did you use?
Is there a way to use circles to fill the cloak?
What other shapes would we have to use with the circle to fill the cloak?
