This is a great activity pack to support kindergartners, 1st graders, special needs, homeschoolers, and children who are starting to learn their two-dimensional shapes: circle, square, triangle, rectangle, hexagon, and trapezoid. Children need lots of practice exploring various forms of shapes. The printables in this pack allow children ample experience. It has been discovered that through numerous practices, exploring, and discussing shapes, students will begin to comprehend certain attributes that define what a shape is called beyond what they think it “looks like."
Students will have the opportunity to correctly name, distinguish, and identify 2-dimensional shapes regardless of their orientations or overall size by defining their attributes. They will analyze, sort, and compare 2-D shapes in different sizes and orientations. They will model shapes in the world by building from shapes. They will compose
2-D shapes to create new shapes and explore symmetry in shapes.
