This pack includes a 2-dimensional and 3- dimensional shape sort along with posters of all the shapes, vocabulary cards, games and worksheets.
When introducing the shapes to my students I first use the posters and manipulative of the shapes and we discuss their attributes and names. I start out with 2-dimensional shapes and then move on to 3-dimensional shapes.
How do I use this sort lesson?
First I begin by going over the name cards and putting them in the pocket chart. Then I show my students how to take one of the cards and sort it in the correct shape word card in the pocket chart. Then I pass out the cards to my students so they can do the task in front of their peers and show others the correct answer. The children enjoy coming up to the chart and manipulating the cards. Later you can use the same cards in the pocket chart to use as a center.
Also included are 2-d and 3-d posters, vocabulary cards, games and worksheets.
