Geometry is the only CCSS Math Domain that spans k-8.  We need to teach it throughout the year.  Have daily and weekly routines where you discuss shapes.  You might have a shape of the week where you discuss a shape deeply, adding to the  discussion everyday.  Here are some great spinners to use in math workstations.  You could have the students spin and collect and graph shapes.  They could also spin and try to fill in pattern block puzzles.  They could also spin and try to compose different shapes for example whoever makes 4 hexagons first, wins.
