“Shapin’ Up With Santa” provides a quick, easy and super-fun “print & go” craftivity, that will help review 2D shapes in some interesting & engaging ways.
The 2D shapes included are: circle, oval, square, rectangle, triangle, hexagon, pentagon, octagon, trapezoid, & heart.
The packet includes patterns for the above shapes, so that children can make a “Shapely Santa” of their own.
Santa's beard is made from a paper plate, which is snipped along the ridges.
Every other "tab" is then bent up. Great fine motor practice, which will help strengthen those finger muscles, at the same time providing a cool 3D effect.
Be sure and check the PREVIEW for lots of samples.
To help practice the “positional words” portion of the 2D shape standard, I’ve also included a “Christmas present” whole group, assessment game, as well.
The “Shapely Pokey” activity, is also super-fun and helps get the wiggles out.
The packet also includes shape posters and pocket chart cards to introduce your lesson.
For added reinforcement, try some of the activities from the "tip list" for how else to use the posters; such as playing the game "Catch the Claus".
My students actually beg to play this game at the end of the day.
I’ve also included a “Shapely Santa” bookmark for your students.
Completed projects make an adorable bulletin board or hallway display.
I’ve included several posters to add extra pizzazz, plus informational “tags” should you want your students to explain the attributes of their Shapely Santa.
