Have students name the shape on which the spinner stops as play proceeds.
If your students have not yet learned the names of the shapes, model the names as play proceeds.
Alternate method of play:
Place the cut out shapes in a container that does not allow the students to see the shapes. Students take turns reaching in to take a shape. The students must name the shape they pull from the container. If the shape matches that student’s board they keep the shape. If the shape doesn’t match, it goes back into the container. The first player to fill their board is the winner.
