Developmentally appropriate Farmmath centers for the preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten classroom! This resource is perfect for all developmental and cognitive levels of early childhood. The centers are fun, engaging, and offer challenges and reinforcement of basic skills.
This resource is set up with 3 levels of developmentally appropriate farm themed shapes centers for the early childhood classroom. Every class is different, every student is different, so this resource gives you the option of starting out slowly, building on what your students know, and offering a challenge as skills are mastered.
Level 1: Fill the Barn! Farm Animal Shape Sort
This beginning level activity introduces shapes in a fun and interesting way.. The barn mats all have chickens of differing shapes in the hayloft-clearly visible. Included are; circle, triangle, square, rectangle and oval. Match the farm animal shape cards to the chicken shape on the barn! Each barn will have 6 different farm animals! This is a fun and hands-on way to introduce or work on those basic shapes! The students will be able to see and explore all the attributes of each shape and feel successful as they complete the activity.
Level 2: Chicken Shapes Match & Clip
This activity builds on the first by helping students practice identifying basic shapes. There are Circles, Triangles, Squares, Ovals, hearts, Stars, Hexagons, Pentagons, Octagons and & Rectangles. Just clip the chicken shape that matches the big picture on each card. The Students will remember the basic shapes they have already been introduced to, and enjoy the ability to identify the shape themselves! This is a great fine motor activity to really understand the attributes of each shape and to practice fine motor skills independently!
Level 3: Shape Bingo
This activity builds on the first two. In this activity we will see 5 different shapes represented in real life pictures. There are 2 different Bingo mats to choose from. A 12 square mat and a 20 square cmat-4 different arrangements for each. Students use prior knowledge to cover each shape as bingo shape cards are drawn
