Are you working on teaching shapes to preschoolers? This simple one page Teaching Shapes reference sheet can be used in a multitude of different ways to encourage your preschool students’ shape skills.
4 Ways to Use Teaching Shapes Reference Sheet
Adding this simple one page reference sheet to your math center set-up allows your preschoolers to learn independently through play. Print off a few and slip them in plastic sheet protectors along with the following simple set-ups for a full week of shape centers!
- Teaching Shapes to Preschoolers with Lacing Alphabet – this simple hands-on activity works on not only shape recognition, but formation and even recognizing shape names. See the complete post here for details.
- Playdough and Shape Cutters – add some playdough and shape cutters to the table to let kids cut out and match all the shapes on the reference sheet.
- Foam Shape Sorting – use a basket of pre-cut foam shapes to match to the reference sheet. Add one of our favorite math activity resources – the Dollar Store sorting tray – to the mix to sort shapes.
- Shape Scavenger Hunt – let your preschooler walk their room, playroom or house to find all the shapes on the reference sheet in their environment.
