Kids need to move! What better way to reinforce those shapes and colors by getting them up and stomping all over the room! This is especially made for the preschool and kindergarteners, but 1st and 2nd grade would love it as well. There are some blank shapes included--challenge your kids, once they know the basics, add colors like blue-green, marroon, fuschia, indigo, ect. With this product, you can prints, laminate, and cut out enough shapes for all students. The larger shapes can be used for many different activites, including my favorite--the Shape (or Color!) Stomp. Spread the shapes throughout the room (tape down if you'd like). Call out "Stomp a _________" and soon your students will be stomping and learning those shapes (or colors). This works best if students have a prior knowlegde of shape/color names. This could be used to introduce them as well.
There are also sheets of smaller shapes included. These have been used as a gross motor matching game. Spread all small shapes on the floor, place larger shapes through the room, students must pick up a shape and match it to the correct shape (or color!)
These can keep students engaged in learning while having fun and burning some of that pent up energy!
