Here are some quick, easy and fun activities, to do to springy up your 2D shape reviews during the spring months.
The “Bunny’s Shapely Nose” patterns come in color on a full-page size, as well as a two-on-a-page size to use as a center activity.
The large bunny pattern also includes shape word cards, so that older students can practice matching a shape to its shape word.
There's a smaller, 3-on-a-page size to use for games, where children pick a partner and play “Show me the shape.”
I’ve also included black & white patterns, so that children can make their own shape games.
* Run the various shaped noses off on pink construction paper or card stock; laminate and trim.
* Keep the noses in a ZipLoc Snack Baggie and attach to the set of cards with a paperclip.
I also play a whole-group game of “Show Me The Shape”, using the large bunny on my white board, which I attach with a magnet strip.
* Attach a soft Velcro dot to the nose section of the bunny, as well as the word section, then scratchy Velcro dots to the pieces.
* Pass out the pieces and call for a shape.
* The child holding that shape, comes up and attaches it. Everyone says the shape as the child points to the nose, then repeats it by reading the shape word as they point to it.
There’s also a black and white “My Bunny’s Nose” booklet, with options for additional pages which feature other shapes.
Children read the word and draw that shape on the bunny’s face, then color, trim and collate their shape booklet.
There are thirteen, 2D shapes included in the packet, which are featured on the cover.
I’ve also included a graphing extension to practice another standard.
I designed this packet to go along with the “Shapely Bunnies” craftivity.
