## Reflection: Checks for Understanding What's In a Hexagon? - Section 5: Exit Ticket

I quickly remembered that kindergartner's fine motor skills are not always strong and that's what it takes to trace a shape.

For this assessment (exit ticket) I looked for the basic outlines of shapes and they didn't have to be perfect or in perfect alignment. I accepted anything that would make sense as in six triangles being drawn too small and not meeting in the middle or different shapes not completely touching in the outline.

# What's In a Hexagon?

Unit 8: Know Those Shapes!
Lesson 15 of 15

## Big Idea: Kindergartners love puzzles. This activity draws out their natural curiosity and ignites it in those who don't start school with much. They use smaller attribute blocks to fill in the hexagon spaces on the page and share what they have created.
