“Funny Flamingos” are 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, rhombus, star & heart

The packet includes patterns for the above shapes, so that children can make a “Funny Flamingo Friend.”

Templates come in a large, full-page size, as well as a smaller, two-on-a-page pattern. Decide what’s most appropriate for your students.

You don’t have to, but accordion-folding the legs is a fun way to strengthen finger muscles, and your students will enjoy the “boing-boing” effect.

Completed projects make an adorable display. Dangle them from the ceiling as a border in your hallway. I’ve included a poster to add pizzazz.

The packet also includes 3 sets of game cards, so that students can play “Memory Match”, “I Have; Who Has?” and sorting games with them. The 3 sets of cards feature: flamingos with a shapely body, plain shapes, plus word cards.

I’ve also included a “Spin to Win” game, plus several worksheets to further reinforce 2D shapes in other ways.

Be sure & check the PREVIEW, for lots of samples.

The “Flamingo Slider” is another quick, easy & fun craft, that will help you whole group assess.

2 graphing extensions add some additional math to the packet as well.

Use the 3 photo posters of real flamingos to introduce your lesson, as well as the “What Shape is a Flamingo’s Body Most Like?” discussion poster.

I’ve also included a list of super-interesting links that I use as part of my introduction as well, which helps me add a bit of science in just a few minutes.
