7 mats are sorted by 1 specific shape and others that are not that shape

9 mats are sorted by 2 specific shapes on each mat

Ideas for how to use these mats include:

Practice drawing shapes that fit with the sort.

Write or draw objects from around the room.

Write names of shapes that fit with the sort.
