Shape Recognition Activities

Teaching your child shapes? Here are some non-traditional ways in which to do so and have fun in the process...
Using multi-shape links purchased at my local dollar store, I sorted them in cups and created index cards for students to imitate the pattern drawn by linking the matching shapes.
Draw various shapes on clothespins that children can clip to corresponding shape pictures placed on index cards and laminated
This file folder activity allows children to match shape manipulatives to their corresponding shapes on the folder
Using foam shapes purchased at a local, craft store, children place them into a sorting tray by shape.

Activities like these are ideal for on-the-go munchkins. I also use them for some of my students with developmental needs who tend to benefit from tactile learning. Stay tuned for more hands-on activities that address other great concepts...
