Teaching Geometry Vocabulary 🔴 ⬛️ 🔷

 Teaching geometry words to elementary students is fun! Here is a simple guide to help you be a rock star when teaching geometry vocabulary to your students!

Start Talking About Shapes

First off, introduce the idea of geometry words to your students. Let them know that learning these words will help them talk about shapes better. Get them excited about it!

Use Stuff You Can Touch

When Teaching geometry bring in some shapes you can hold, like blocks or pattern blocks. Show how these shapes relate to the words you’re learning. Let the kids play with them too. Hands-on learning is awesome!

Play Some Games


Make learning fun by playing games. Split the class into teams and give each team some flashcards. Have them match words to their meanings and talk about what each word means.

Make learning even more exciting with games. You can use a board game where students move by answering questions about geometry words.

Look Around You

To add a fun aspect of teaching geometry go on a little adventure outside and find shapes in the real world. Look at leaves, buildings, and anything else you can find. Talk about how these shapes relate to the words you’ve been learning.

Check What You Know

Wrap things up by checking how much your students have learned. You can do little quizzes or group projects where they make posters or presentations using the geometry words they’ve learned. Give them feedback so they know what they’re doing well.

Teaching geometry words doesn’t have to be boring. With fun vocabulary games and activities, you can make learning exciting for your elementary students. Keep it positive and fun, and you’ll see your students becoming geometry pros in no time.
