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

• 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

• 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

• ##### 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 2 programme of study
• KS1.Y2.G.PS – Geometry - properties of shapes

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS1.Y2.G.PS.4 – Compare and sort common 2-D and 3-D shapes and everyday objects
