Examples of pictures for the students


1.     Prior to the lesson plan, the teacher would need to find pictures to display as examples on Evernote.
2.     To start the lesson plan the teacher will introduce the 5 shapes the students will be learning about. These shapes include; triangles, squares, circles, rectangles and a diamond.
3.     Next the class will go over the characteristics of each shape using the example pictures in Evernote. Shapes will be shown individually as well as in pictures.


Students will be asked to draw a picture on a piece of paper using markers, colored pencils or crayons that incorporate all five shapes.


After the completion of these pictures, the teacher will take pictures of the students drawing and put them into Evernote allowing the class to see everyone's drawings. Together, they will pick out the shapes used in the drawings.


Here are some examples of pictures that can be used through Evernote to help the students learn different shapes and their characteristics as well. The teacher can find pictures online and save them on her desktop to put into Evernote or she can take the pictures herself and insert them into Evernote


Compare basic shapes to real life objects!
