Practice 2D as well as 3D shapes, with these two "Shaping Up With Seuss” and "Flipping Over Shapes” emergent reader flip booklets.
Students read the simple sentences, underline the capital letters and add end punctuation.
They trace and write shape words, then trace, color and draw the various shapes.
Gluing the top square to their cat’s hat, then snipping on the lines, creates a "flip the flap" booklet.
I really think it’s important for students to not only be able to identify the various shapes, but pick them out in real life and give examples.
With that in mind, I designed both booklets with graphics of real life things.
When everyone is done, read the booklets together as a whole group, to reinforce concepts of print.
I specifically used lots of Dolch word pronouns for more teachable moments.
I’ve also included a graphing extension.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students have fun shaping up with Seuss!
