Product Description
Identify and describe shapes with your kids using names of shapes and colors. Analyze and compare the two-dimensional shapes and then sort them to the correct color or shape mats. Use all of the shapes or some of them depending on how difficult you want to make the activity and how many people are participating!

Find things around your house or classroom to sort! Extend the colors or shapes activities to real things (beads, buttons, building blocks, etc). Or have your kids make their own shapes to glue onto the sorting mats!

The sorting mats can be enlarged to poster size and hung around the room for reference. Shapes and pictures can be added to the mats throughout the year!


Included in this packet:
Shape and Color Cut-Out Tiles
Plenty of shapes and colors for your child to sort by color or shape. Enough shapes to share for small group activity. The more the merrier! Four mats are provided that include cut outs of different combinations of shapes and colors.

Color Mats
Three mats that can be separated (in half for each color) are provided for the colors: Red/Orange, Yellow/Green, Blue/Purple

Shapes Mats
Four mats that can be separated (in half for each shape) are provided for the shapes: Rectangle/Square, Circle/Oval, Triangle/Irregular Shapes, Diamond/Star
