1-2-3 Come Make A Shape Booklet With Me
The Dollar Shapes Up is a fun, quick and easy way to review Common Core State Standards: L.K.2a, L.K.2b, RF.K.3c, L.1.2b, RF.1.1a, K.G.2
Show students a real dollar bill and ask them, "What shape is inside the center of the dollar? Who is the president that is pictured here?"
Tell them that they are going to help shape the dollar up, because the booklet that they will be working on, is all messed up.
The booklet includeds the hexagon, pentagon and octagon shapes. If you don't cover those, simply leave those pages out.
Students trace and write the shape word, trace and draw the shape, circle the capital letters in the sentences and then add the end punctuation.
Children cut and glue the various shapes to their matching one in the booklet.
These shapes are all INSIDE the dollar. As an added activity, run through spatial directions by having students put a shape above, behind, beside, between, under etc. so that you are reviewing that Standard as well.
