Shape and fine motor control practise - Monster Mash – fun with shapes!
In this pack you will find 3 fun monsters – ‘Disco Monster’, ‘Frog Monster’ and ‘Bird Monster’ to cut and paste to match the little picture at the top. Students practise their scissor skills while working on their shapes. Each shape has a dotted line to cut along.
This activity is an interesting one to see how students are able to carefully observe the picture and copy it and to see how developed their spatial awareness is. I have found my students love these activities and with practise become better at rotating and manipulating the shapes to make them fit correctly.
Extend your students by asking them to name and describe the shapes used in their monster. Or, graph the shapes used and compare the data with the other monsters.
Alternatively, remove the small picture from the top right corner and students can create their own monster!
Keep an eye out for further themes in the ‘fun with shapes’ series – robots, fish and transport.
