Sorting shapes

We have been sorting shapes in lots of different ways! We started by looking at a pile of shapes and stating things that were different about our pile of shapes. We then had races to see who could sort their shapes the fastest. Here are four ways we sorted our shapes. The students were all very engaged in this activity and worked very well to complete this task as fast as they could.
