Students can either play independently and place the laminated shape tiles on the matching soldier cards, or they can choose a partner and take turns spinning the shape spinner. Whatever shape they land on, they place it on the matching card. Practice colors by having students color the shapes with a dry erase marker, according to the spinner.
Instead of doing just turkey stuff, add variety to your November lessons, with some cornucopia craftivities.
This craftivity is a super-fun way for your kiddos to practice 2D shapes. For that finishing touch, I ran yellow paper through my scredder to make the "hay". "Socrates" will be FREE for an entire year (!) after which time he will be updated and become part of my whopping 63-page Scarecrow Shapes packet in my TpT shop. Click on the link to zip on over. For your convenience, I've included a PREVIEW here.
Review shapes as well as numbers with this adorable easy-reader, with a monster theme. This item will be FREE for an entire year, after which time it will be up-dated and put in Diane's Dollar Deals in my TpT shop.
Play a variety of games that reinforce shapes, with this cute haunted house, filled with spooky shaped windows.
You can make just a copy for yourself and use it to review the basic 2D flat shapes with your students, or run off copies of the shapes and have students cut and glue them into a booklet of their own. To make mine sturdier, I used a trimmed file folder. Students cut the different "web window" shapes out, so that their pom pom spider, that's on the last page, pops though.
Reinforce the 2D flat shapes as well as shape words with this fun game. Students take turns spinning. Whatever shape they land on, they color or bingo dot the matching shaped spider on their web. A set of shapely spiders and their shape words are included in this packet.
Review shapes with this fun Spider Shape game. Run off the shape tiles on a variety of colors of construction paper. Students place a tile to the matching shape spider. This makes a nice independent math center. I've included a blank set of spiders for you to program with whatever.
