This shape sorting center activity is a great way to help your students begin to recognize the shape of objects they see every day. It includes five shape categories: circle, square, triangle, rectangle and oval. It also contains drawings of each shape and twenty photographs of objects which students can sort into the different shape categores.
After students have successfully sorted all of the photographs they can complete a written response which extends and deepens their understanding of shape as well as incorporates reading and writing into a math center. Enjoy!
