Kite-A quadrilateral with two different pairs of consecutive congruent sides.

Trapezoid-A quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides.

Parallelogram-A quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides

Basically I have all this crap from school and I want to to use it and share with others.  So I posted it on my own blog.  Feel free to use. Please to do not plagiarize, the teachers will know.
