Learning to recognize shapes and the words for them can be tricky! In this activity pack, children will have the opportunity to practice these skills through scaffolded models of instruction, beginning with learning to match like colored shapes all the way to recognizing shape words, identifying shapes in their environment and practicing making shapes.
Included you will find several layers of instruction. Begin with task cards, which can be played in “Go Fish” fashion, or as a game of Memory as a way to recognize shapes and/or their names. Follow up with use of blackline masters for independent practice of recognizing shapes, finding shapes, matching shapes to like shapes, matching shapes to shape words, and drawing shapes. Hopefully, you’ll be able to use all activities for small group work or for children working with partners during center time!
