1-2-3 Come Do Some More 2D Shape Activities With Me
Each month I like to have a little review of all of the 2D shapes, so this information stays stuck in my students’ heads.
With that in mind, I designed the "Shape Up!" turkey-themed packet, with a variety of games and activities that provide a fun way to review these shapes: circle, oval, triangle, square, rectangle, hexagon, pentagon, octagon, rhombus, trapezoid, heart & star.
There is an assortment of (12-on-a page) cards which can be used for “Memory Match” and “I Have; Who Has?” games.
I’ve included a 3-page “tip list” of ideas and other games you can use the cards for, such as: “Flip It”, “What’s Missing?” “Speed” & “Kaboom!”
Games can be played independently or as a whole group, then put in your math center.
There are also 2 sets of black & white game cards, so that students can make a game of their own to take home for further reinforcement.
Game sheets like “I Spy a Shape” are a super-fun way to whole group assess. The same worksheet can be used 5 times!
There are puzzles, dice & spinner games, as well as 2 graphing activities.
An emergent reader booklet, packed with Dolch words, practices a variety of standards.
The booklet can remain a whole page, or students can cut in half on the dashed line, creating a "just the right size" smaller booklet for little hands.
There are cover options for both. Students read the sentence, underline the capital letter and add end punctuation.
You can do this as a whole group activity, with "monkey see-monkey do" directions.
Children also trace the shape word then write it, then trace the shape and draw it. Afterwards students cut and glue the appropriate shape to the empty box, then color the "shapely turkey" at the top of the page.
Thank you for stopping by.
A dusting of snow has put me in the Christmas mood, so time for a little early shopping.
Wishing you a peaceful day filled with wonder.
