Learn about two-dimensional shapes with this math game, learning center, and emergent reader! Ten reindeer shapes: a circle, oval, hexagon, trapezoid, rhombus, square, rectangle, hexagon, octagon, and pentagon are ready to lead Santa's sleigh! By reading an engaging, original poem about what happened to Rudolph after his famous Christmas Eve flight, you'll see how Rudolph's family has grown, and is now full of extra-special young reindeer!
Be sure to see the preview!
Children can build their sleigh team by correctly matching shapes to their picture, name, or properties. "Build Santa's Team" is a game that can be played whole-group, small-group, or in centers. "I Can" cards make it easy for children to remember what to do independently. Teacher extensions are provided for working with patterns and ordinal numbers.
Two-dimensional shape knowledge is reinforced through the emergent reader! This entertaining story focuses on one shape at a time and ties in properties. Sight words include: I, am, a, have, can, go, up, we, are.
When our students played the game, they had ideas to add...so now we have a way to put presents in the sleigh, and add Santa!
We hope that you have as much fun with this integrated set of activities as we've had!
