This is a sorting mat for sorting shape flashcards into two categories: shapes with straight lines and shapes with curves. Page 1 is the actual mat that can be laminated or printed on cardstock. Pages 2-3 are flashcards of basic shapes and some more difficult/complex shapes (trapezoid, cylinder, etc.) for closer to Kindergarten time. Simply use the shapes that you want to study at any given time and have the student sort the shape cards into the correct column. Ask him/her WHY they are putting the shape in that column.
Hope this is helpful!
*Now has more shapes that may or may not be "official" shapes, but give more opportunity for sorting.
