Three levels are included to fit the ability of the student. Students who do not need to begin with level 1, can start with level 2 or level 3, dependent upon their skill level.
Level 1: Place the shapes in the bed of the truck. Have the student find and place the sign to go on its door.
Level 2: Place the sign on the truck and have the student find the correct shapes to place in its bed.
Level 3: For students who can read:
Place the written sign on the door and have the student find the correct shape pieces.
Place the shapes in the truck and have the student find the correct written sign to place on the door.
Independent work: Let the student take the game and pieces to their table and place all the pieces.
Level 4: Color Sorting: Sort the shapes according to color into the correct truck bed.
To use as a Group Activity: Use the door signs for game cards and the shapes as game pieces.
Give each student a truck and a set of six shapes in a particular color to match the colored shape on the vehicle. Set the cards on the table in a stack (or hold in your hand if the student has a problem with cards on the table.)
Each student will draw a card from the stack on the table or from your hand. With each draw, they will place the piece in the bed of the truck. If they have the shape in that color already, they lose their turn and the student to their right will draw. The game will continue until all the pieces are placed in the truck.
Use the white truck for extra colors and shapes. Extra shapes are included at the end of the game.
