Lesson Objectives

Improve children’s identification of the different shapes and their names

Introduce vocabulary that relates to sliding objects

Encourage a deeper understanding of the qualities of shapes


Children’s interests/prior Knowledge

Children should know the common shapes, such as circle, oval, triangle, square, and rectangle. For success of the lesson, children should be able to follow instructions.



Familiar shapes (circle, square, oval, rectangle, and triangle)

3-dimensional shapes (Cone, sphere, and cube)

Description of Experience/Procedure

The teacher distributes cut-out shapes to all the groups. First, children should be able to name the shapes. Secondly, the children should observe the teacher’s demonstrations on sliding, stacking, and rolling of objects and apply it to the shapes.





After allowing the children to explore the various shapes, the teacher should hold a class discussion so children can explain the qualities of the shapes. The children should describe what it means to roll, stack, and slide.





Introduce 3-dimensional shapes to help the children practice stacking, rolling and sliding. Now, the children should work in groups to identify the object that roles, stacks, or slides.

Pedagogical Practices (Teaching Strategies)  

Educator’s role

The educator should avail all the required shapes, select the appropriate vocabulary for the lesson, issue guidelines for the lesson activity, and supervise children.


Open-ended Questions

How much do the children know about shapes?

How can 3-dimentional shapes be introduced in a way that children understand?


Evaluation of Experience


Assessment/documentation for children’s learning:

Educator observes and records children’s involvement in the activity. The teacher may also use a short assessment test in which the children should match the objects with the terms used during the lesson.

Achievement's narration:

Lessons’ objectives are successfully achieved if the children:

Understand the meaning of the vocabulary used during the lesson (i.e. roll, stack, and slide)

Identify the shapes, including the 3-dimentional ones

Realise that a sphere rolls, cubes stack, and a cone slides



Linking to EYLF Outcome/s


Tick one relevant outcome and provide rationale

LO1: Children have a strong sense of identity

LO2: Children are connected with and contribute to their world

LO3: Children have a strong sense of wellbeing

LO4: Children are confident and involved learners

LO5: Children are effective communicators


Identification skills are essential for demonstration of the qualities and attributes of the different shapes.

Future Planning

Introduce additional 3-dimensional shapes such as pyramid, cylinder, cuboid, and prism, then ask the children to group the shapes based on the ability to stack, roll, or slide.
