1-2-3 Come Make Some Bunny Shapes With Me
As with many of my other activities, the Shapely Bunny packet took many more hours than I thought it would. It's two days later, and I'm finally done! Woo hoo.
Since the other Shapely Animal packets have been such popular downloads, I decided to add another one for spring. If you missed the Shapely Slick Chick packet I published earlier this month, click on the link to grab it.
The Honey Bunny packet follows a similar format. I've included large shapes that students can add details and ears to, to make their shapely bunny, as well as a set with bunny features drawn in. Make a set, laminate and then use as a sweet spring bulletin board.
Have children pick out their favorite shape and make one of their own.
If you want to turn their work into a bulletin board as well, toss the shape cards into a container and have them choose one. Whatever shape they pick is the Shapely Bunny that they'll create.
I've included a big bunny poster that you can personalize with your name and the caption: "Mr(s) ____________'s class is really shaping up... or "Somebunny" knows their shapes. Hang this in the center of your bulletin board.
Use the other poster to make a "What's the secret shape?" game. Draw a question mark on an index card and tape it to the laminated poster so that it's a "hinged" "flap" door.
Using a dry erase marker, draw a shape underneath. Call on children to guess what shape is hiding?
There's also an easy reader booklet that covers quite a few standards. Students read the simple sentences, underline the capital letters and add end punctuation.
Children trace and write the shape words, as well as trace and draw the shapes and then draw details on the first shape to make it look like a bunny.
The last page asks them which Honey Bunny was their favorite. A graph is provided to record this data.
I've included bunny shape cards in color, along with their matching shape word cards.
These are perfect for Memory Match or "I Have; Who Has?" games.
Add the bunny Kaboom cards to your game to make things even more fun.
There's also a set in black and white, which includes a cover, so that students can make an Itty Bitty Shape Booklet.
Students can also play a funny bunny spinner game. Children pick a partner and take turns spinning.
Whatever shape they land on, they color the matching shape on their funny bunny. The child who completes their worksheet first is the winner.
Finally, I've also included a worksheet with spatial directions, one for listing a shape's attributes, plus a match the shape to the shape word.
When everyone has completed whatever projects you want them to do, pass out the certificate of praise.

1-2-3 Come Make A Barn Manipulative With Me
My Y5's LOVED "sliders". I designed them for every theme and for a variety of report card standards (shapes, letters, numbers, words etc.) They provide wonderful fine motor skill practice, and are a quick, easy and fun way to whole-group assess. I named them "sliders" because students "slide" their answer strip up and down to locate the correct response.
I've had quite a few requests for lessons revolving around a farm theme, so I thought I'd whip together a barn slider. Have students glue their head over the farm girl/boy who's peeking out of the door, to make this extra special.
There are traceable word cards featuring various farm life holding a shape. I've also included traceable, shape-word cards as well. Teachers can flash a card, students then manipulate their slider to find that shape and shape word on their sliders.
Print off extra sets of the cards so children can play Memory Match or "I Have; Who Has?" shape games. For further reinforcement, run off the "My Shapes booklet". Children trace and write the shape word, as well as trace and color the shape.
