Product Description
This shape unit is designed with young learners in mind! It is packed with printable activities that are sure to help your students enjoy learning about shapes!

This pack is designed primarily for kindergarten age students, but could also be appropriate for Pre-K! First graders may benefit from some of these activities as well, however please read carefully about which shapes are included and check the preview before making your decision.
This pack is a zip file - you will receive each activity pack below as 8 separate pdfs within the zip file for optimum organization.

The following shapes are included in each activity unless indicated otherwise next to the description:

2d shapes - square, circle, rectangle, triangle, rhombus, hexagon, oval, trapezoid,
3d shapes - cone, cube, cylinder, sphere

This pack contains the following activities -

Shape booklets/emergent readers - Each reader is titled "What is a ____?" (shape name) and contains pictures and simple phrases of objects in the environment that are the given shape. 13 books total, one for each shape.

Create a Shape Creature - This is a fun, hands on, creative activity! Students cut out the given shapes and glue them on the paper to create their own "shape creature." They can then use crayons to color and add detail. It is open ended and meant for them to use their imagination using only the given shape! (2d shapes only, 8 total shapes creatures).

Shape Roll, Trace, and Color - Students can play alone or with a partner. They roll the dice and read the color word, then trace the edges and color the shape in that box using the correct color. Keep playing until one color reaches the top! There is one page per shape.
***For the 3d shapes, we talk about the faces of the shape and trace the edges we see, then color the entire shape.

Shape Puzzles - Match 2d and 3d shapes with objects in the environment! 3 matches for each shape, and puzzles are self correcting (each shape will only match to items that are that shape) great for young learners and for a math center!

Shape Necklaces - Cut out, hole punch on the circles and loop string through. Tie into necklace. Have students color and wear!

Play-doh mats - 8 mats for students to build shapes in a hands on, fun way! (2d shapes only)

Shape headbands/crowns - Simply color, cut out and glue construction paper strips (sentence strips also work great!) to either side and wear! A picture of the shape, name, and 2 objects are included on each one.

Cut and paste shape sorts - 20 sorts (14 2d with 3 levels of sorts, and 6 3d shape sorts) simply print, cut, and glue! This specific activity is also available HERE. (If you already own this activity, please contact me before you purchase this pack)
