Here´s the link to the resources:
Use the flashcards for chorus work. Have the students say the shape word in a different voice.
Teacher: Circle! Say Circle in an angry voice.
Flashcards 1. Cards on the desk. Give a group of students a set of shapes flashcards to spread on a desk. The student on the turn pick a flashcard to name it. If the group says it is correct, that student can take the card, if not, the student has to return it.
Flashcards 2. Sort the cards by color.
Flashcards 3. Sort the shapes by number of sides.
Flashcards 4. Name a beginning letter and the students have to say the shape.
Students: star and shape.
Flashcards 5. Play Bingo. Have the students draw 10 shapes and color each shape in the 11 playing colors. Start calling the shapes using the flashcards.
Teacher: gray triangle.
Flashcards 6. Charades. Have a student come to the front and pick a card and draw it in the air and have the class guess the shape. The one the guesses comes to the front to continue.
I made the set of shape hats. One set is with the shape included and another set is with the space for the shape that the students cut and paste on each hat.
Play games with the hats.
Option 1. Have the students stand up when you call a shape, the rest of the class sits.
Option 2. At your signal students stand up and run to find a matching partner and stand together. It can be the exact same shape in color or just the shape.
Option 3. Collect all the hats and without the students seeing put a hat on each one. At your signal have them walk around finding a partner by asking questions.
Students: Am I a square ?
Shape book. An easy traceable book to review colors, numbers and shapes and to learn sight words such as I , see. I made a puppet and placed a paper clip on the back so it can stand and be a reading companion.
Shape pockets. I found a similar idea on Pinterest. I made pockets out of each shape by printing them double and gluing the shapes leaving a space to insert the craft sticks. Give the students the crafts sticks and the shapes separately and have them insert the craft stick into the corresponding shape by reading each one.Or, hand in the craft sticks to one group of the students and the shapes to another, have them ask people in the other group if they have the match to their piece.
