Hi everyone,
I am in the process of teaching 2D shapes to students
1st -5th grade. I have searched the internet for a list
of the general geometric shapes, and came up with
different lists. Is there a set list of shapes you
teach? I found circle, square, diamond, rectangle,
hexagon, octagon and pentagon. Does this list sound
right? I want to teach these shapes incomparison to free
forms.
thanks for your input!

edible shapes add a fun touch to a lesson. Square crackers or Ches cereal, Circle cereal, rectangle, crackers, Triangles Doritos chips, for odd shapes, cut the shape from a slice of cheese, or bread

Have you looked at http://www.sanfordartedventures.com/study/g_line.html? They have some great lessons and ideas for shapes and more. My fourth graders enjoy the lessons we have done.

Yes, that sounds great, and don't forget triangle!
After they master these, I usually follow up with organic shapes like clouds, milk spills, mud puddles, tree foliage, etc. I explain that some shapes don't have names, but are created in nature. They love playing with string or paint to create their own shapes!
Older students can be taught:
Geometric=Mechanical
Organic=Natural
and that sometimes they overlap!

You sound like a wonderful teacher, FNA!
~Happy Art-ing!
