Identifying 2 dimensional shapes and their characteristics can be difficult for children but with this easy to prep center your students will be able to identify and sort 2D shapes into groups.
I use this center within my own classroom and my students love it. It is so easy to use and very straight forward.
In this product you will find 10 shapes (square, rectangle, circle, oval, triangle, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, rhombus, and trapezoid). Each shape has 4 cards. Simply laminate and cut out and have students sort them into groups based on the characteristic headings included. Finally, you will find 3 cut and paste sorting worksheets. These worksheets can be used as independent work or even homework.
To help guide my students with shape names I have my 2D Shapes Posters up in the room.
You can find the posters here:
