What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

## United States – Common Core State Standards

• ##### K.G – Geometry
• Mathematics

• K.G.1 – Describe objects in the environment using names of shapes, and describe the relative positions of these objects using terms such as above, below, beside, in front of, behind, and next to.

• K.G.2 – Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size.

• K.G.3 – Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, “flat”) or three-dimensional (“solid”).

• Mathematics

• K.G.4 – Analyze and compare two- and three-dimensional shapes, in different sizes and orientations, using informal language to describe their similarities, differences, parts (e.g., number of sides and vertices/“corners”) and other attributes (e.g., having sides of equal length).

• ##### 1.G – Geometry
• Mathematics

• 1.G.1 – Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size) ; build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.

## Australia – Australian Curriculum

• ##### Measurement and Geometry
• Shape

• ACMMG009 – Sort, describe and name familiar two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects in the environment

• ##### Measurement and Geometry
• Shape

• ACMMG022 – Recognise and classify familiar two-dimensional shapes and three-dimensional objects using obvious features

## New Zealand – National Standards

• ##### 1.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 1.GM.2 – Sort objects and shapes by a single feature and describe the feature, using everyday language

• 1.GM.3 – Represent reď¬‚ections and translations by creating patterns

• ##### 2.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 2.GM.2 – Sort objects and shapes by different features and describe the features, using mathematical language

• ##### 3.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 3.GM.2 – Sort objects and two- and three-dimensional shapes by their features, identifying categories within categories

• 3.GM.3 – Represent reflections, translations, and rotations by creating and describing patterns

## United Kingdom – National Curriculum

• ##### Year 1 programme of study
• KS1.Y1.G.PS – Geometry - properties of shapes

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS1.Y1.G.PS.1 – Recognise and name common 2-D and 3-D shapes, including:

• KS1.Y1.G.PS.1.a: 2-D shapes [for example, rectangles (including squares), circles and triangles]
