Here’s a simple and quick, Pilgrim hat that’s a super-fun way for your kiddos to practice the various 2D shapes.
If your students are like mine, they will absolutely LOVE making this little shape booklet.
* The Pilgrim hat craftivity where the buckle is actually a little shape booklet.
Choose which shapes are appropriate for your kiddos and have them color, cut and collate into a mini buckle booklet.
When everyone is done, use it as a creative way to whole-group assess.
Call out a shape. Students flip through the pages, find the correct one and hold it up.
You can see at a glance who is having difficulty. Jot yourself a note and work with these kiddos later.
I’ve also included a set of 2D pocket chart cards to use as a review.
There’s also a matching cover, so that your students can make an itty bitty booklet, as unlike the buckle activity above, these pages also include the shape word, which they trace and write.
* Finally, there’s a set of picture cards, as well as word cards, so that students can play a Memory Match and/or an “I Have; Who Has?” game.
* I've also added a larger hat pattern, should you want your kiddos to wear their "Shapely Buckles" Pilgrim hat.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me hoping your students enjoy practicing 2D shapes with a Pilgrim’s hat buckle.
